Everyone hold four fingers up above your heads, because we’re heading to the final fifteen minutes at M&T Bank Stadium with your Minnesota Vikings leading the Baltimore Ravens by a final score of 24-17.

The Vikings started the second half in style, with rookie Kene Nwangwu taking the second half kickoff and returning it 98 yards for a touchdown! It’s his first NFL score, and hopefully the first of many. Greg Joseph’s extra point put the Minnesota lead back to two touchdowns at 24-10.

Baltimore converted a 4th-and-2 in their own territory on the next drive and pushed deep into Minnesota territory, setting up a first-and-goal at the 7. They ultimately faced a 4th-and-goal from the 1, and Lamar Jackson found fullback Patrick Ricard for a score. Justin Tucker hit the extra point, and the score was 24-17 in favor of the Vikings with just under nine minutes remaining in the quarter.

It looked like the Vikings were going to go three-and-out on the next drive, but they ran a fake punt for the first time in forever, and Nwangwu picked up the first down for the good guys.

Unfortunately, the Vikings wound up punting on the drive anyway.

As we move to the fourth quarter of play, the Ravens are looking at a first-and-10 from the Minnesota 49-yard line.

We’re heading to the final quarter of play at M&T Bank Stadium, and the Minnesota Vikings lead the Baltimore Ravens by a score of 24-17. Can the Vikings hold on and pull off what would be a pretty significant upset? Come hang with us and find out!
