Cardinals At Vikings Score: LaRod Stephens-Howling Ties It Up

The second quarter of play hasn't gotten off to quite the start the Minnesota Vikings wanted it to, and the Arizona Cardinals have tied things up at the Metrodome.

The Cardinals embarked on a very long drive to close out the first quarter, pushing the ball all the way down to the Minnesota 16-yard line. However, Brian Robison registered a sack of Cardinals' quarterback John Skelton, causing a fumble that was recovered by Kevin Williams to stop the Arizona drive.

That didn't last long, however. On the first play of the second quarter, Vikings' quarterback Christian Ponder rolled out to his right and attempted to connect with tight end Kyle Rudolph, but overthrew him badly and found linebacker Paris Lenon instead for his fifth interception in three games.

The Cardinals capitalized in there, as they took just four plays to get into the end zone. Running back LaRod Stephens-Howling took the ball over the goal line from three yards out to tie the score at seven.

With 12:41 left before halftime at the Metrodome, the Minnesota Vikings and the Arizona Cardinals are tied at seven.
