Vikings At Lions Score Update: Brandon Pettigrew Finds The End Zone

It's getting worse for the Minnesota Vikings against the Detroit Lions. When you consider that they were already down 14 points less than five minutes into the game, that takes some doing, but it's getting worse.

After a three-and-out by Minnesota, Stefan Logan returned Chris Kluwe's punt into Minnesota territory at the 34-yard line. The Lions then turned a 3rd-and-10 play into an 18-yard gain with a tight end screen to Brandon Pettigrew, and on the next play Pettigrew was wide open for a 12-yard touchdown pass that made the score 21-0 in favor of Detroit.

Depending on which source you listen to, Cedric Griffin may or may not have been benched. He was replaced by Benny Sapp on the last Detroit series, but it doesn't appear to have made a whole lot of difference. Matthew Stafford has completed six of his eight passes for 111 yards and two touchdowns on the afternoon already, and we still have about six minutes left in the first quarter.

Yep, it's breaking down in Detroit for the Minnesota Vikings. Hopefully things can turn around from here on out, but with the way things have looked so far, we're not holding our collective breath.
