Vikings victimized by longest touchdown in NFL history

Vikings K Ryan Longwell left a 57-yard field goal short on the final play of the first half, and San Diego cornerback Antonio Cromartie caught the ball nine yards deep in the end zone and ran down the right sideline for an NFL record 109-yard touchdown.

Two players -- Nathan Vasher and Ellis Hobbs -- had the previous record of 108 yards. But Cromartie's is the longest possible.

The score gave the Chargers a 14-7 lead heading into halftime.

This should be on the dumb a$$ head coach, you need to manage the clock better, using the time outs get more yards, this kick is made and not returned. Another coach who cannot not manage the clock. Fire chilly. Great job AD & O Line, plus the D. Still the weak spot is the coaches, and QB.

A win is a win. This one was actually 95% of the time fun to watch. AP is unbelieveable. The Vikings got a steal when they drafted him at the 7th spot. Please, Please, Please tell me that Brooks is going to be starting next week. I think he gives the team the best shot at winning. I agree that Childress needs to go. If you are going to try a 58 yard field goal, have your special teams unit on the field that can actually chase someone down just in case you miss it. I don't believe this team is too far from being pretty good. We need a leader and a quarterback. Rice was a great draft pick too. Do they stand a chance against the Pack?

It was remarkable. Most amazing game I've seen. I'm kind of old-school in that I love to watch a running back dominate a game.
