Sometimes, you have to make your own breaks, and the Vikings did so near the end of the first quarter.
Detroit punt returner Stefan Logan took his eyes off the ball, causing him to put the ball on the turf, and Chad Greenway jumped on it for the Vikings. On the very next play, Brett Favre threw towards Percy Harvin, and #12 made a great catch for a 23-yard touchdown pass to tie the game at seven. The throw by Favre wasn’t great, but Harvin made an amazing catch to reel it in for the score.
With the first quarter now in the books, the Lions and Vikings are tied at seven.
