Minnesota Vikings 14, Washington Redskins 7 - Toby Gerhart Carries It Home

Adrian Peterson hasn’t seen any action for the Vikings yet in the second half, but the second-round pick out of Stanford has been doing just fine in his stead, thanks.

The rookie carried the ball in from five yards out for his first ever NFL touchdown, and has given the Vikings a 14-7 lead after their first drive of the second half. The big play on the drive saw Brett Favre fake a handoff to Gerhart on a third and one play before hitting tight end Visanthe Shiancoe for a 29 yard gain down to the Redskins’ 14-yard line.

The Vikings’ drive covered 74 yards in 9 plays, taking 5:12 off of the clock.

With 9:48 remaining in the third quarter of play, the Minnesota Vikings lead the Washington Redskins by a score of 14-7.
