Saints At Vikings Score Update: Minnesota Converts Saints Turnover Into Points

The New Orleans Saints have handed the Minnesota Vikings two turnovers thus far on the afternoon, but Minnesota's offense has only managed to turn those into three points.

The latest turnover came on a bad snap in Saints' territory, as New Orleans' center snapped the football before Drew Brees was ready for it, and the ball went right past him. Everson Griffen recovered for the Vikings at the New Orleans 30-yard line, and the Vikings were in business once again.

However, the Vikings' offense threw things firmly into reverse, losing ten yards on the drive and forcing themselves to settle for another Ryan Longwell field goal attempt. The Vikings' kicker drilled it from 49 yards out to cut the Saints' lead to 1 point at 7-6.

If the Saints are going to keep handing the Vikings the football, Minnesota needs to start doing something on offense, because field goals aren't going to get the job done against an offense like the one the Saints have.

However, as we play through the first half, the Minnesota Vikings trail the New Orleans Saints by a score of 7-6.
