Raiders At Vikings Score Update: Michael Bush Finds The End Zone

The Minnesota Vikings once appeared to have something promising going against the Oakland Raiders' defense, but once again self-destructed at a big moment.

After the drive stalled at the Oakland 30-yard line, the Vikings brought in the normally reliable Ryan Longwell to attempt a field goal. However, something went wrong on the play, and Longwell didn't even kick the ball, leaving holder Chris Kluwe to get crushed by the Oakland defense and the Vikings to turn it over on downs.

The Raiders then went 57 yards in 8 plays with relative ease, capping the drive with a 2-yard touchdown run by Michael Bush, giving the Raiders 17 unanswered points and making the score 17-7 in favor of Oakland.

Still no further word on whether or not Adrian Peterson will be back for the second half in this one. Word continues to be that his return is probable.

With 1:20 left in the first half of play at the Metrodome, the Minnesota Vikings trail the Oakland Raiders by a score of 17-7.

Lorenzo Booker has just fumbled the ensuing kickoff, so the Raiders will again start inside the Minnesota 20-yard line. The Raiders will also get the ball to start the second half.
