New England Patriots 21, Minnesota Vikings 10 - Another Turnover Becomes A Touchdown

The Vikings appeared to have everything going their way, but since this is the Vikings, you knew something would happen.

On a second down play in Patriots territory, Brett Favre hit a nice pass to Percy Harvin. . .or so we thought. But Patriots’ corner Devin McCourty made a brilliant play to take the ball out of Harvin’s hands and turned it into an interception that the Patriots took into Minnesota territory.

Four plays later, the Patriots were in the end zone courtesy of a BenJarvus Green-Ellis 13-yard touchdown run.

With a little more than two minutes left in the third quarter, the Vikings are trailing the Patriots by a score of 21-10.
