Bradford, Rudolph connect for 14-0 Vikings lead


Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford has been sharp, and his team has a 14-0 lead over the Giants in the second quarter.

The Vikings scored first after a gift via a Dwayne Harris fumbled punt. In the second quarter, Bradford found tight end Kyle Rudolph on a slant route for a 7-yard touchdown.

Rudolph has now caught a touchdown pass in three straight games. The Rudolph catch capped a nine-play, 65-yard scoring drive. Bradford was 5-for-5 on the drive.

The Giants punted on each of their first four possessions and wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. didn’t have a reception until the fifth. Soon after, Beckham got flagged 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct for taunting Xavier Rhodes.
