Minnesota Vikings 3, Green Bay Packers 0 - Vikings Strike First

A long drive by the Vikings has resulted in the first points of the day, even if it was only a field goal.

Three big plays on the drive. . .a 25-yard run by Adrian Peterson, a 19-yard pass to Toby Gerhart to convert a big third down, and a 29-yard pass to Greg Lewis moved the Vikings into the Green Bay red zone, but the drive stalled out thanks to penalties and an inability to move the ball. The Vikings had to settle for a 24-yard field goal from Ryan Longwell to get themselves on the board.

With six minutes remaining in the first quarter, the Vikings lead the Packers by a score of 3-0.
