Sherels scores in Vikings victory


SEATTLE (KTTC/AP) -- John Marshall grad and former Golden Gopher Marcus Sherels intercepted a deflected pass and returned it 64 yards for a touchdown, Donovan McNabb led a long drive that ended in the first of Ryan Longwell's two field goals and the Minnesota Vikings beat Seattle 20-7 on Saturday night.

Tristan Davis added a 35-yard TD run with 2:09 left for Minnesota's first offensive touchdown of the preseason.

McNabb led a 13-play drive that started at the 1 and ended in Longwell's 36-yard field goal. Longwell added a 34-yarder.

McNabb was 6 of 8 for 81 yards. Playing against his former team, Seattle's Tarvaris Jackson was running for safety most of the night and struggled. He completed 11 of 21 passes for 75 yards and one interception that deflected off receiver Golden Tate's hands and right to Sherels.
