Well, after a typical 2011 Vikings third quarter performance, a 17-13 lead has turned into a 33-20 deficit. Christian Ponder has thrown two interceptions, both picked off by Charles Woodson, who proceeded to act like he had never intercepted a pass in the National Football League before.
Adrian Peterson just went on a 54-yard sprint to move the Vikings down to the Green Bay 26-yard line, which is wher we are as we start the fourth quarter of play. He now has 163 yards on 17 carries and a touchdown on the afternoon.
Ponder has struggled in the second half, as he's now 8/19 for 126 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. Hopefully the purple can get things turned around here, but it's not looking terribly promising at this point.
Vikings trail by 13 with about 14 minutes left in this one, as it looks like the team is on their way to 1-6. Ryan Longwell just hit from 46 to narrow the gap a little bit.
