Jacksonville started at their own 20-yard line, and moved the ball 51 yards in ten plays to get into Minnesota territory. The Jacksonville drive was aided by a somewhat questionable personal foul penalty on Letroy Guion on a play where the Vikings sacked Jacksonville quarterback Blaine Gabbert. Gabbert was down, and Guion fell on top of him to down him for the sack. . .or so he thought. However, the officials deemed that Gabbert was already down, and that Guion's hit was late.
The Jaguars' drive eventually stalled, and Scobee drilled a field goal from 47 yards out to make the score 17-15.
The Vikings are taking over at their own 20-yard line after a touchback. With 9:35 left in the 2012 NFL season opener, the Minnesota Vikings hold a slim lead over the Jacksonville Jaguars, 17-15.
