The time has, once again, come. . .yes, put those four fingers up above your head, as we’re heading to the fourth quarter at U.S. Bank Stadium with your Minnesota Vikings trailing the Detroit Lions, 23-21.

The Vikings got the ball first to start the second half and Nick Mullens was cooking, finding T.J. Hockenson for a big gain and then hitting K.J. Osborn for a big 47-yard pass to the Detroit 6. Osborn finished off the drive on the next play, catching a 6-yard touchdown pass from Mullens to give Minnesota their first lead of the day, 21-17.

The Lions answered by taking the lead back, converting a couple of fourth downs on their ensuing drive and getting into the end zone on a 1-yard pass from Jared Goff to Amon-Ra St. Brown to take the lead back at 23-21 after the extra point was blocked.

Minnesota went three-and-out on their next possession, giving the Lions the ball back at their own 17-yard line. As we move to the final quarter of play, the Lions are looking at a 2nd-and-6 from the Minnesota 33-yard line.

We’ve got one quarter of play left from U.S. Bank Stadium with the Vikings trailing the Lions, 23-21. Can the Vikings get it together and pull off a comeback? Come watch the conclusion of this one with us and find out!
