Ravens' Notable Performances:


The Baltimore Ravens came into Minnesota to try and end the Vikings hot 5-0 start to the season, but Adrian Peterson and Brett Favre had other plans.

The Vikings started off the first quarter by scoring two touchdowns off of Brett Favre passes to Visanthe Shiancoe and Bernard Berrian. Minnesota would lead at halftime, 14-3.

In the third quarter, the Vikings scored a field goal to make it 17-3, but a Ray Rice touchdown would inch the Ravens closer to the Vikings, 17-10.

Ryan Longwell would hit another field goal for Minnesota, making it 20-10 at the end of the third. In the fourth, it would be a whole different ballgame.

To start off the scoring in the fourth, Shiancoe caught a touchdown pass from Favre to give the Vikings a comfortable lead, 27-10. Soon after, Mark Clayton would catch a 32-yard touchdown from Joe Flacco to make it a 10-point game.

Unfortunately for Baltimore, the Vikings would hit another field goal, giving them a 30-17 lead.

Less than a minute later, Derrick Mason took a short pass and turned it into seven points for the Ravens, making it a one possession game. Then, Ray Rice would put his running ability to the test with a 33-yard touchdown run to give the Ravens their first lead of the game.

Ryan Longwell would kick a field goal to give Minnesota a 33-31 lead late in the fourth. It was time for Joe Flacco to play hero, attempting to lead his team down the field for a victory. He did it perfectly, setting up Steven Hauschka for a possible 44-yard game-winning field goal. Unfortunately, it was wide left, giving the Vikings a 33-31 win, as the Ravens' rally fell slightly short.
