We’ve got one quarter of football remaining from U.S. Bank Stadium, and the Minnesota Vikings now find themselves trailing the Green Bay Packers by a score of 17-10.

The Vikings got the ball coming out of the locker room and, as has been the case for most of the night, was not able to get anything going and went three-and-out. The Packers got some yards on their next drive, but a huge sack by Ifeadi Odenigbo helped to squelch the drive and got the Vikings the ball back.

It looked like the Vikings were going to go three-and-out again after Kirk Cousins was sacked by Za’Darius Smith, but Cousins then found Stefon Diggs for a huge 28-yard connection to keep the ball with the purple. After another first down, Cousins attempted to take a deep shot to Diggs, and the ball found its way to Kevin King for an interception.

The Packers took advantage of the turnover, getting into the end zone for the first time on the night thanks to a 12-yard touchdown run from Aaron Jones. The Packers went for a two-point conversion, and Aaron Rodgers connected with Geronimo Allison for the score to put the visitors ahead, 17-10.

As we move to the fourth quarter, the Vikings have possession and are looking at a big 3rd-and-3 from their own 43-yard line.

In a game they need to win to keep their division title hopes alive, the Vikings trail the Packers going into the fourth quarter by a score of 17-10. Can the Vikings mount a comeback in this one?
