Vikings At Seahawks: Minnesota Adds Field Goal After Goal Line Stand

The Minnesota Vikings stopped the Seattle Seahawks at the goal line, and they turned it into their best drive of the pre-season to extend their lead to 10-0 in the Pacific Northwest.

The Seahawks found themselves with first and goal on the 2-yard line, but were unable to bust into the end zone on four successive tries. The Vikings then took over at their own 1-yard line and moved the ball 81 yards in 13 plays. The highlights of the drive were a 26-yard catch and run by Jim Kleinsasser. . .yes, THAT Jim Kleinsasser. . .and a 21-yard dart to newly acquired receiver Michael Jenkins.

Minnesota moved the ball down to the Seattle 13-yard line on the drive, but a false start on right tackle Phil Loadholt killed the offensive momentum, and forced the Vikings to settle for a 36-yard field goal from Ryan Longwell to give themselves a 10-0 lead.

The Seahawks have just taken the ball back with 6:33 left in the first half of play. We will continue to have updates for you here as the action warrants.
