The Minnesota Vikings were reunited Saturday night with an old friend, new Seattle quarterback Tarvaris Jackson. They didn't treat him very kindly.
Jackson was running for safety most of the night and struggled as the Vikings beat the Seahawks 20-7. He completed 11 of 21 passes for 75 yards and one interception that deflected off receiver Golden Tate’s hands and was returned for a touchdown by cornerback Marcus Sherels.
New Minnesota quarterback Donovan McNabb led a long drive that ended in the first of Ryan Longwell’s two field goals for Minnesota.
McNabb led a 13-play drive that started at the 1 and ended in Longwell’s 36-yard field goal. Longwell added a 34-yarder.
McNabb was 6 of 8 for 81 yards. Tristan Davis added a 35-yard TD run with 2:09 left for Minnesota’s first offensive touchdown of the preseason.
As long as Jackson is under center, Sidney Rice, Mike X Williams, and Zach Miller are all likely to struggle.
