Minnesota struck first with 2:35 left in the first quarter when Percy Harvin scored on a 4-yard run. The touchdown capped a 9-play, 91-yard drive. Harvin put the Vikings in position to score after a 45-yard reception from quarterback Christian Ponder. Harvin's touchdown can be seen here in gif form:
Harvin all but put the game away with 10-yard touchdown catch near the end of the third quarter than put the Vikings up 23-0. Harvin broke several ankles on the score. Jocks were strewn across the field.
The Titans didn't get on the board until Matt Hasselbeck connected with Jared Cook on a ten-yard touchdown with 10:40 to play. That finished a 12-play, 77-yard drive. It was the first Tennessee drive to end in Vikings territory. Minnesota answered that drive immediately, driving for a touchdown on a catch from Kyle Rudolph to put the score at 30-7.
With the win, the Vikings move to 4-1 on the year. The Titans drop to 1-4.
As animated above, Percy Harvin was mighty studly. He caught eight passes for 108 yards and a score, while adding two rushes for eight yards and a TD.
Chris Johnson was...ugh. Fantasy owners expecting big things from Johnson may be the saddest people on earth. He rushed for a whopping 19 yards on 13 carries.(link to sbnation.com/fantasy)
