Titans At Vikings Score: Tennessee Gets On The Scoreboard

The Minnesota Vikings have not shut out an opponent since a victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1993. And, thanks to Matt Hasselbeck, they still haven't.

The Tennessee Titans had what was, by far, their best offensive drive of the day, moving the ball 77 yards in 12 plays following the touchdown by Percy Harvin. Matt Hasselbeck took advantage of a Minnesota defense that appeared to have backed off a little bit from the pressure they had been applying for most of the game.

The drive concluded with a 10-yard pass from Hasselbeck to tight end Jared Cook to give Tennessee their first points of the afternoon, with the Rob Bironas extra point making the score 23-7 in favor of the home team.

The Titans just attempted an onside kick that wound up being ruled as having gone out of bounds, giving Minnesota the football inside of Titans territory.

With just over ten minutes remaining in the fourth quarter at the Metrodome, the Minnesota Vikings lead the Tennessee Titans by a score of 23-7.
