Titans At Vikings Score: Percy Harvin Carries One In For The Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings got off to a slow start on their first drive against the Tennessee Titans at the Metrodome, but their second drive was very well done, and resulted in a Minnesota touchdown.

Minnesota started the drive at their own 9-yard line, and Christian Ponder got things going with a 13-yard scramble on the first play of the drive. Ponder then hit Michael Jenkins for 15 yards, and two plays later hit a beautiful 45-yard rainbow to Percy Harvin to move the ball to the Tennessee 16-yard line.

The Vikings were forced into a third down situation again, but Ponder found Jenkins again to give the Vikings first and goal at the 4-yard line. Harvin finished things off from there, with Harvin lining up in the backfield and taking a handoff from Ponder, powering in from four yards out.

The Vikings drive took 9 plays to cover 91 yards, taking 4:59 off of the clock.

With 2:31 left in the first quarter of play at the Metrodome, the Minnesota Vikings lead the Tennessee Titans by a score of 7-0.
