Colts Sit Plenty of Starters; Lose Preseason Opener 13-3

Sage Rosenfels led Minnesota on scoring drives on the first two series, helping the Vikings beat Indianapolis 13-3.

Rosenfels completed 10 of 13 passes for 91 yards to take the early lead in the team’s quarterback duel. Chester Taylor scored the game’s only touchdown on a 5-yard run in the first quarter. Tarvaris Jackson, last year’s starting quarterback, completed seven of 15 passes for 39 yards and led the Vikings to a field goal.

Indy went into typical preseason mode for coach Jim Caldwell’s debut. Five offensive starters and the top five defensive backs all sat out. Peyton Manning took only six snaps and was sacked three times, and the Vikings outgained Indy 147-0 in the first quarter.
