The Minnesota Vikings' defense has put on a dominating performance this afternoon, as they've held the Tennessee Titans to under 100 yards of offense through three quarters of play. . .and, most importantly, zero points.
After Christian Ponder threw his second interception in two attempts. . .after going 145 attempts in a row to start the season without one. . the Minnesota Vikings scored on back-to-back drives in the third quarter. The first score came on a nice 12-play, 69-yard drive that ended in a 26-yard Blair Walsh field goal. The second one was a true thing of beauty.
On 3rd-and-5 from the Tennessee 10-yard line, Christian Ponder took the snap and wheeled it out to Percy Harvin on the right side. Harvin made about four or five Titans miss as he danced his way to the end zone for his second touchdown of the day and a 23-0 Minnesota lead. We'll have the animation of that as soon as we're able to get our hands on it.
The Vikings' defense has continued to dominate against Tennessee, as we're through three quarters of play and the Titans have just 96 yards of offense.
We're moving on to the fourth quarter at the Metrodome, and the Minnesota Vikings lead the Tennessee Titans by a score of 23-0.
