Lions At Vikings: Peterson Finds The End Zone To Put Minnesota Up, 13-0

Stop me if you've heard this one, but things are going well in the first half for the Minnesota Vikings.

After stopping the high-powered Detroit offense one more time, the Vikings took over at their own 33-yard line. However, they didn't stay there for long, as Percy Harvin took an end around handoff from Donovan McNabb and blasted around the left side for a 41-yard sprint, putting the Vikings at the Detroit 26. After a couple of passes to Kyle Rudolph, the Vikings lined up in a Power-I formation, handed the ball to Adrian Peterson, and the best running back in the National Football league flew around the left side for a 6-yard touchdown run.

Ryan Longwell buried the extra point to give the Vikings a 13-0 lead, meaning that they have now outscored their opponents by a score of 47-7 in the first half of games this season.

With six minutes remaining in the first half at the Metrodome, the Vikings lead the Detroit Lions by a score of 13-0.
