Ladies and gentlemen, you know the drill. . .get four fingers way up above your head, because we’re heading to the fourth quarter at Mile High with the Minnesota Vikings leading the Denver Broncos by a score of 17-9.

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

The Broncos got the ball to start the second half, and their offense put together a three-and-out courtesy of a holding penalty and a nice play by Danielle Hunter. The Vikings got the football and moved into Denver territory in two plays courtesy of Alexander Mattison and Jordan Addison. The Vikings then found themselves looking at a 3rd-and-8 from the Denver 10-yard line, and Joshua Dobbs handled business on his own, running it in from 10 yards out to extend the Minnesota lead to 17-9 midway through the third quarter.

After another three-and-out, the Vikings pushed into Denver territory again and, once again, the Vikings turned the ball over as Alexander Mattison fumbled it away with Denver recovering.

Denver then moved into Minnesota territory in just two plays, thanks to a Javonte Edwards run and a pass from Russell Wilson to Jerry Jeudy. As we move to the third quarter, the Broncos are threatening, as they have a 1st-and-10 from the Minnesota 21-yard line.

We’ve got fifteen minutes left from Denver, ladies and gentlemen, and the Vikings currently lead the Broncos by a score of 17-9. Come on in and see if the Vikings can pick up their sixth consecutive victory!
