Cardinals At Vikings: Minnesota Extends Lead to 34-10

I feel fairly confident in saying that I don't think that even the Minnesota Vikings can screw this one up.

Ryan Longwell has hit a field goal from 50+ yards for the first time since 2009. . .he didn't even have a single attempt from more than 50 yards in 2010. . .by hitting a 53-yarder to extend the Vikings' lead over the Arizona Cardinals to 34-10.

This will be the first victory of the year for Minnesota, and in the process the 2011 Vikings will avoid being just the second team in franchise history to start out 0-5. That means the only Viking team to start 0-5 will remain the 1962 version of the team.

Congratulations to the Minnesota Vikings and Leslie Frazier on getting their first win of the season, and Frazier's first victory as a full-time NFL coach.

We're at the two-minute warning in Minneapolis, and the Minnesota Vikings lead the Arizona Cardinals by a score of 34-10.
