They’re heading into the locker rooms for halftime in Denver, and your Minnesota Vikings are ahead of the Denver Broncos by a score of 10-9.

Here’s our LIVE watch party from Vikings Report with Drew and Ted. We hope you’re enjoying the show so far!

The Vikings started the second quarter with the ball at the Denver 3-yard line, and they got into the end zone on a 3-yard pass from Josh Dobbs to Josh Oliver to put themselves into the lead. It looked like Dobbs was going to get taken down for a sack but he stayed on his feet and found Oliver for the score to make it 7-3.

The Vikings’ defense then forced another three-and-out and started out at their own 29-yard line. They pushed down to the Denver 5-yard line but Dobbs was sacked for a big loss and the Vikings settled for a 34-yard field goal from Greg Joseph to extend their lead to 10-3.

The Broncos got a couple of big plays on their next possession but once again had to settle for a Wil Lutz field goal, this one a 30-yarder to make it 10-6 with 4:08 left in the half. The Vikings got the ball back and got over midfield, but the Vikings had to punt it away with Ryan Wright getting hit with another touchback.

Denver then proceeded to move into position for another Lutz field goal, this one a 52-yarder, and it’s a 10-9 ball game going into the half.

Come on in and join us for the third quarter of this one, folks, as the Vikings are looking for their sixth straight victory and currently lead the Broncos by a score of 10-9.
