We’re through one quarter of play at Lucas Oil Stadium, and the Minnesota Vikings lead the Indianapolis Colts by a score of 3-0.

The Vikings got on the board first, marching all the way down to the Colts’ 3-yard line on their opening drive, aided in part by a roughing the passer penalty on a third down incompletion by Kirk Cousins. The drive stalled, however, and Dan Bailey came on for a 21-yard field goal to give the good guys a 3-0 lead six minutes into the game.

That was all the scoring from the first quarter of play, as the Colts have had the ball for the final nine minutes of the first quarter in a replay of what we saw last week against Green Bay. The Colts are currently threatening after what should have been a third-down stop was negated by a penalty on Jeff Gladney.

As we move to the second quarter of play, the Colts have the ball with an 2nd-and-8 from the Minnesota 11.

We are through one quarter at Lucas Oil Stadium, and the Vikings lead the Colts by a score of 3-0. Come join us for the second quarter of play!
