Broncos At Vikings Halftime Update: Ryan Longwell Tacks On Three More

We've gone to halftime at the Metrodome, and the Minnesota Vikings have taken a 15-7 lead over the Denver Broncos.

After the Vikings' touchdown, the teams exchanged punts, with the Broncos getting the ball back at their own 20-yard line with 54 seconds left. Denver had all three of their time outs at their disposal, so they attempted to move the ball down the field. After a short gain on first down, Tim Tebow was sacked by Jared Allen, and the ball came loose with Allen recovering it. Even though it looked like the ground might have caused the fumble, the call on the field was that the Vikings got to keep the football, and they were in business at the Denver 21.

A couple of passes got the Vikings down to the Denver 6-yard line, but they couldn't get it into the end zone, and Ryan Longwell hit a field goal from 25 yards out to increase Minnesota's lead to 15-7 as we went into the locker room.

The Vikings' defense has been dominant thus far this afternoon, as the Broncos have generated just one first down on the offensive side of the ball. They may have had more if not for the astute challenges of Leslie Frazier, who has had two successful challenges on the afternoon, which means he still has one in his pocket for the rest of the game.

In terms of total yardage, the Vikings have more than quadrupled Denver's offensive output, with 214 yards to Denver's 48.

The second half has just started at the Metrodome, with the Vikings holding a 15-7 lead over the Denver Broncos. Keep it tuned right here for all the updates on this one!
