One quarter of football in the books from CenturyLink Field in Seattle, and the Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks are tied at 7-7 on Monday Night Football.

The Vikings won the toss and deferred to the second half, giving the home team the football first. Seattle got the ball to near midfield entirely on the ground, but Eric Wilson made a nice stop on Chris Carson on a 3rd-and-1 play to force a Seattle punt.

Kirk Cousins led the Minnesota offense on the field for their first possession, starting at the Seattle 16-yard line. On a 2nd-and-1 play, Cousins flipped a short pass to C.J. Ham, who rambled for 36 yards, and the Vikings were suddenly into Seahawks territory at the 38-yard line. Then, on 3rd-and-1, Stefon Diggs took a jet sweep and broke it for 27 yards to the Seattle 2, setting up first-and-goal. Dalvin Cook finished things from there, going in for a two-yard touchdown and staking the Vikings to an early 7-0 lead.

Seattle would answer on their next possession, however. They put together a very long drive, and got themselves down to 1st-and-goal at the 1. They eventually got into the end zone on a 1-yard run from Chris Carson to even the score at 7-7 with just seconds left in the quarter.

As we move to the second quarter of play, the Vikings are looking at 2nd-and-6 from their own 29-yard line.

We’ve played fifteen minutes in Seattle, and the Vikings and Seahawks are tied at 7. Come join us for the second quarter of play!
