Randy Moss a non-factor in first half
He’s on the field, but wide receiver Randy Moss has yet to make a splash in the box score.
Through two quarters in New York, the Minnesota Vikings’ newest acquisition has been held to just one catch for seven yards on three targets. Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie—not active All-Pro Darrelle Revis—was assigned the task of covering Moss during the first half.
Credit an aggressive New York pass rush that has already forced two sacks and limited the Vikings to just 15 passing yards and 51 yards of total offense in two quarters of action. In addition to being sacked twice, quarterback Brett Favre has been hit five times and hurried twice.
Moss did get some action on the first play from scrimmage when he completed a pass to quarterback Brett Favre after taking the handoff on a reverse. However, the play was called back due to one of three Minnesota first-half penalties.
The Vikings currently trail the Jets 9-0 at the end of the first half in New York.
