The Vikings allowed Darren Sproles to take a screen pass for a huge gain of 39 yards, which was aided by a "late hit" on safety Jamarca Sanford, even though Sproles still appeared to be in-bounds when he got hit. On the next two plays, however, the Saints were hit with consecutive penalties to give themselves a 1st-and-25 situation. However, all of that was negated by a pass interference penalty on linebacker E.J. Henderson, who was somehow covering Marques Colston in the end zone to give them a 1st-and-goal from the 1.
The Saints just attempted an onside kick, and the Vikings wound up jumping on it, so they have good field position near midfield as a result. The Vikings haven't done anything with good field position thus far, so we'll have to see if they can do anything here.
