Minnesota Vikings at Kansas City Chiefs: Second quarter recap and third quarter discussion

(*)
(**)We’re at the half in Kansas City, and the (***)Minnesota Vikings(****) are tied with the (*****)Kansas City Chiefs(****), (*******************************************************)-(*******************************************************).(******)
(*******)The Vikings started the half with the ball, and appeared to have a first down on a scramble by (********)Kirk Cousins(****), but Cousins slid short of the sticks and the Vikings were forced to punt the ball away.(******)
(*********)The Chiefs put together a very long drive on their next possession, starting at their own 9-yard line and pushing all the way to the Minnesota 5. However, the Vikings’ defense held strong in the goal-to-go situation, and the Chiefs were forced to settle for a (***************************************************)-yard field goal from (**********)Harrison Butker(****) to take the lead back, (*******************************************************)-7.(******)
(***********)The teams then exchanged three-and-outs, and the Vikings took possession just after the two-minute warning. After an insanely bad offensive pass interference call on (************)Laquon Treadwell(****) that was, eventually, reversed, the Vikings found themselves looking at 4th-and-1 from the Kansas City (*****************************************************), and elected to go for it. Cousins then found Irv Smith to move the sticks. The Vikings couldn’t get any closer, however, and they called on (*************)Dan Bailey(****) once again. (**************)Bailey(****) was good from (************************************************), and the two teams went into the locker room tied at (*******************************************************)-(*******************************************************).(******)
(***************)It hasn’t been a banner afternoon for (****************)Kirk Cousins(****), as he’s been pretty inaccurate for most of the afternoon. He has completed just 9-of-(****************************************************) passes for (********************************************) yards and the touchdown to Bisi Johnson in the first quarter. The leading receiver on the afternoon has been (*****************)Laquon Treadwell(****), who has caught three passes for (*********************************************) yards so far in this one. Irv Smith has a pair of catches for (**************************************************) yards, and four other receivers have one reception each: (******************)C.J. Ham(****) (5 yards), (*******************)Stefon Diggs(****) (4 yards), Bisi Johnson (4-yard touchdown), and (********************)Dalvin Cook(****) (4 yards).(******)
(*********************)(**********************)Cook(****) hasn’t gotten a lot going on the ground so far, as he’s carried the ball (*******************************************************) times but has managed just (**********************************************) yards. Cousins has a 5-yard scramble (where he slid short of the first down marker on third down), (***********************)Ameer Abdullah(****) has a 2-yard carry, and (************************)Alexander Mattison(****) has carried once for no gain.(******)
(*************************)We’re halfway through this Week 9 contest at Arrowhead Stadium, and the Minnesota Vikings are tied with the Kansas City Chiefs, (*******************************************************)-(*******************************************************). Come on in and join us for the third quarter of play!(******)
