After a boneheaded snap from center John Sullivan handed the Packers the first three points of the game, the Vikings answered, and then some.
Rookie Percy Harvin returned the kickoff 77 yards. Three plays later, the Minnesota drive had fizzled.
But Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly delivered a head butt to Vikings running back Chester Taylor. The half-the-distance walk-off gave the Vikings first and goal.
Three straight runs by Adrian Peterson put the ball inside the one. And then coach Brad Childress didn’t hesitate. He dialed up Peterson one more time, who stretched the ball over the goal line for the score.
Vikings lead, 7-3.
