On Sunday night, the Minnesota Vikings started their game against the Denver Broncos with a turnover. However, the team was able to come back and take a 10-9 lead at halftime. Josh Dobbs threw a 3-yard touchdown to tight end Josh Oliver, while Greg Joseph hit a 34-yard field goal for Minnesota’s points.
The Broncos were able to open the scoring when Dobbs fumbled on Minnesota’s opening drive. Tight end T.J. Hockenson lined up under center and pitched it to Dobbs, who took the carry to his left. But the QB was hit hard and lost the football, allowing Denver to take an early lead.
Despite this setback, Minnesota has been making efforts to run the ball successfully. Alexander Mattison took 10 carries for 50 yards, while Ty Chandler had 30 yards on six carries. Dobbs is also doing well, completing 11 out of 13 passes for 126 yards and one touchdown. The team has had some problems with snaps, with Dobbs fumbling two of them, but he was able to recover both to prevent turnovers.
On the other hand, Denver hasn’t been doing much in terms of scoring drives in the first half. They are yet to convert on third downs and have only five first downs and just 16 rushing yards. Russell Wilson is doing well with his passing game, completing 13 out of 17 passes for 132 yards, while Courtland Sutton leads with two catches for 38 yards.
At halftime, Minnesota will receive possession of the ball and will have a chance to extend their lead over Denver before they begin playing again in the second half.
