The Minnesota Vikings are still fighting, ladies and gentlemen, and for a team as undermanned as this one is becoming, that's about all we can ask for.

On their second possession of the third quarter, the Vikings put together a 14-play, 80-yard drive for a touchdown, courtesy of Toby Gerhart's 1-yard touchdown run. (In case you missed it, Ted started Toby Gerhart on his fantasy team today. That means a winner is him and so forth.)

Christian Ponder continues to be impressive in this one, having completed 16 of 20 passes for 147 yards thus far. He's thrown a couple of dangerous passes, but he has kept some plays alive with his legs, including an impressive 3rd-and-1 completion to Allen Reisner to keep the Vikings' scoring drive going.

This team is going to fight, ladies and gentlemen. They trail 17-7 as we get the fourth quarter underway, looking at a 2nd-and-10 from their own 20-yard line.
