After a bit of a scary start, the Minnesota Vikings have played very good football. They go into the second quarter with a 7-0 lead over the Oakland Raiders, and have themselves in position for more.

Things got off to a rough start for the Vikings, as the first play saw Kirk Cousins get tripped up by Garrett Bradbury for a loss of four yards. The purple recovered nicely after that, though, as a big pass to Irv Smith Jr. was followed by an even bigger pass to Adam Thielen for a 35-yard touchdown! Dan Bailey hit the extra point, and the good guys were off to an early 7-0 lead.

Thanks to a couple of penalties on the Raiders, including a roughing the passer penalty on Arden Key, the Vikings pushed deep into Oakland territory again. As we move to the second quarter of play, the Vikings are looking at second-and-goal at the 1-yard line.

A solid first quarter for the Minnesota Vikings, as they take a 7-0 lead into the second quarter of play and are on the doorstep looking for more. Come on in and join us for the second quarter of play!
