Saints At Vikings Score Update: Ryan Longwell Gets Minnesota On The Board First

The Minnesota Vikings didn't get an interception of Drew Brees on their first drive. . .they've now seen 231 pass attempts without a pick. . .but they did manage a turnover and some points anyway.

On the Saints' third play from scrimmage, Brees found tight end Jimmy Graham wide open for an 18-yard gain to the New Orleans 48-yard line, but Graham was stripped of the football by safety Jamarca Sanford. Rookie Mistral Raymond scooped up the fumble, and returned it to the New Orleans 26-yard line for the first fumble recovery of his young career.

Unfortunately, the Vikings couldn't do much with it, as they only moved the ball one yard in three plays. That was good enough for Ryan Longwell, however, as he drilled a 44-yard field goal to give the Vikings a 3-0 lead early in the first quarter at the Metrodome.

Good start for the Vikings so far, but it remains to be seen if they can capitalize on their early momentum. Keep it tuned right here for all of the latest updates on this one.
