Minnesota Vikings 7, New England Patriots 0 - Vikings Strike First For First Time This Season

It’s the Adrian Peterson show, ladies and gentlemen, and the New England Patriots have a front row seat thus far.

After getting 13 carries in the game’s first quarter, and picking up 59 yards in the process, Peterson appeared to have scored the game’s first touchdown on his 14th carry from a yard out. The ruling was challenged by the Patriots, and the play was upheld by the officials for a Minnesota touchdown, leading to a very class chant from the New England faithful. I won’t tell you exactly what the chant was, but it rhymes with “bull spit.”

So, for the first time this season, the Vikings have scored first in a game, as they now lead the Patriots 7-0 with 14:57 left in the second quarter of play in Foxboro.
