Viking Triumph: Vikings 27 Lions 13
After two weeks of regular season play the Vikings have yet to put together a complete game. The same as last week, the Viking offense was comatose most of the first half. The only spark in the first half was a 10 play touchdown drive, where AD came out of the gates with a 22 yard gate and Favre was perfect passing with a 1 yard TD pass to Shanks.
The Viking offense took that drive and took to the second half and scoring 20 more point on the Lions. Peterson had a decent day at the office, with 15 rushes 92 yards and a 27 yard touchdown run also 4 snags for 24 yards. Favre went 23 of 27 for 155 yards and two touchdowns.
Chad Greenway was the spark on the defense on this day with 2 INTS, a fumble recovery forced by Jared Allen and an onside kick recovery. Greenway was all over the field on Sunday. The rushing defense was kind of wobbly on stopping Kevin Smith. Smith ran for 83 yards on the ground. With the Viking facing Frank Gore and 49ers better figure it out quit or it may be a long day on the ground for the Viking defense.
