Weather Delay: Vikings 6, Raiders 6

Sat, 08/22/2015 - 21:15
The Vikings and Raiders are in a weather delay with the scored tied at 6 with 6:45 left in the first half. The game is expected to resume at 9:15 p.m. and there will be no halftime, so here’s the weather delay blog post. Good: Teddy Bridgewater started off slow, but he wrapped up his final drive on a high note. He finished 10 of 14 for 89 yards and a touchdown. He connected on a nice throw to wide receiver Charles Johnson for a 10 yard touchdown to complete his outing. Bridgewater and his receivers were off at the start of the game. They had a shorter time to prepare before the game due to lightning strikes, but Bridgewater found his rhythm after the first drive. He’s now 22 of 28 for 291 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions in three preseason games. Bad: The Vikings’ starting defense didn’t look sharp on the second drive. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr led his team on a six-play, 75-yard drive in 2:24 that ended on a two-yard touchdown rush by Latavius Murray. The Vikings’ front seven struggled to fit the run on the first two plays, and rookie wide receiver Amari Cooper burned cornerback Terence Newman for a 40-yard gain on the fourth play of the drive. Ugly: Kicker Blair Walsh struggled on two 35-yard attempts before the weather delay. He pushed a field goal and an extra point attempt wide right. The wind may have played a factor on the field goal attempt, but Walsh just flat out missed the extra point attempt.
