First Half:

Here is the first half yardage and play stats. These breakdown all plays except the sacks. You can see which sides we are having success. If you can call what we did successful in the first half. We completely gave up on the middle of the field.

We didn???t have much success in the first half. We made gains running and throwing to the left side.

Second Half:

We must have made adjustments during halftime. Coach Childress must be given credit for making the necessary changes to move the offense. Brett Favre had a much better game and overall he was 14 for 34 and 264 yards in the game with 3 touchdowns. Over 200 yards thrown in the second half. The passing game switched more to the right side starting in the third quarter.

Overall:

We tried to keep the passing balanced between the right and left side of the field. We also included plays in the middle of the field that helped balance our offense. This middle attack didn???t happen until the second half. Clearly the rushing game moved to our strength and the left side of the offensive line. We gained 60 yards on the left side in the second half. This is on top of the 22 yards in the first half total 82 yards on the backs of Adrian Peterson, Bryant McKinnie, and Steve Hutchinson. We averaged 10.0 yards a carry on the left side in the second half and 5.5 yards per attempt in the first half. We gained 10.7 yards a pass on the right side of the field. If we can build off the second half performance than our offense will continue to score points and turn the season around.
