Joe Webb is once again in at quarterback for an injured Christian Ponder, who appeared to aggravate his hip injury on a hit by Israel Idonije early in the second quarter. Webb has led a couple of decent drives, one that resulted in a blocked field goal, and one that resulted in a made field goal.
Jared Allen has 1.5 sacks in this one, giving him 20 for the season. He now trails Chris Doleman by one for the Vikings' single-season team record (Doleman had 21 back in 1986) and Michael Strahan's NFL mark of 22.5* is within reach.
So, as we get ready to begin the final half of football of the 2011 season for the Minnesota Vikings, they trail the Chicago Bears by a score of 14-13.
