Oakland Raiders At Minnesota Vikings - Third Quarter Open Thread

The Vikings got the first seven points of this afternoon's game, which is always nice.

Of course, since then, they've given up 24 unanswered points and have really just looked terrible.

Pretty much any way the Vikings could have screwed up in the second quarter, they did so.

Bad interception by locking onto a guy and throwing into double coverage? Check.

Lining up for a field goal and not even getting the kick off? Check.

Fumbling a kickoff return inside your own 20-yard line? Check.

Oh, and we're still not sure exactly how bad Adrian Peterson's ankle injury is. At this point, I'm not even sure why you'd bother putting him back into the game. I mean, if he can go, he'll go, because he's Adrian Peterson and that's just the way he's wired, but if he's not 100%, I don't see a reason for it at this point.

Outside of the awful interception, Christian Ponder has actually played a pretty good ball game. He's currently 9/11 for 67 yards, and he's also currently the Vikings' leading rusher with 54 yards on four carries, the majority of which have come because he had exactly .8 seconds to react before the defense was on him and he had to get the heck out of Dodge.

Still a whole half of football left to play, ladies and gentlemen. . .of course, your mileage may vary as to whether or not you see this as a positive or a negative.

Feel free to come hang out with us, folks. If nothing else, the jokes ought to get better from here on out.
