Vikings At Seahawks: Blair Walsh Gives Minnesota Lead

It's getting physical at CenturyLink Field between the Seattle Seahawks and the Minnesota Vikings, and the Vikings have taken the lead back.

Minnesota moved the ball downfield with Adrian Peterson and Percy Harvin showing that they are not going to be shying away from contact. On a big run by Peterson, he laid quite a hit on Seattle safety Earl Thomas. Percy Harvin followed that up by lowering the shoulder and going head-on with Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman to the Seattle 14-yard line.

The drive stalled after that, however, as rookie linebacker Bobby Wagner sacked Christian Ponder on third down. The Vikings once again called on rookie Blair Walsh, and his kick was true from 36 yards out to give the Vikings a 17-14 lead.

Peterson has carried the ball 12 times for 144 yards on the afternoon, and the Seahawks don't appear to have much of an answer for him at this point. He'll have to keep that going in order for the Vikings to try to build their lead further.

Time is winding down in the second quarter, as we're approaching the five-minute mark. The Minnesota Vikings are hanging tough, as they lead the Seattle Seahawks by a score of 17-14.
