The Minnesota Vikings got the ball first in tonight's strange, strange Monday night game at Ford Field, with QB Brett Favre watching QB Tarvaris Jackson from the sideline. On the quick opening drive, Jackson completed two of three before the Vikings punted away the ball.
After an Eli Manning interception, the Jackson and RB Adrian Peterson drove Minnesota into the red zone, where WR Sidney Rice appeared to trap a potential touchdown pass against the ground. After the incompletion, kicker Ryan Longwell kicked through the game's opening score. Here's Jackson just having fun out there:
Surprisingly, the Ford Field crowd isn't quite as anti-Vikings as one might've expected. The Detroit stadium is even playing the Vikings' traditional first-down horn-blowin' sound effect, a mighty neighborly gesture from one rival to another.
Jackson has completed five of seven passes for 36 yards and dove for a successful fourth-down conversion. Peterson has rushed for nine yards.
