Historic first-half futility for Cardinals

By Mike Sando

The Arizona Cardinals somehow fell behind the 0-4 Minnesota Vikings by a 28-0 score in the first quarter Sunday.

They're down 28-3 midway through the second quarter.

A trip through Pro Football Reference shows 10 NFL games since 1940 with one team scoring 28 or more first-quarter point while the other team scored none.

Not the way the Cardinals wanted to head into their bye week. Adrian Peterson has three touchdown runs already for the Vikings.
