Raiders At Vikings Score Update: Sebastian Janikowski Hits Another One

Not a whole lot of action in the third quarter this afternoon at the Metrodome, and what action there has been has generally not been positive for the Minnesota Vikings, as the Oakland Raiders are just taking it to them thus far.

After a dearth of action, Christian Ponder threw one of the few truly terrible passes that he's thrown since becoming the Vikings' starting quarterback, as it was deflected and wound up in the arms of Raiders' defensive tackle Tommy Kelly. It was Ponder's second interception of the day and the third turnover of the afternoon for Minnesota.

Fortunately, the Raiders couldn't do much with it, and had to call on the man they call Sea Bass, kicker Sebastian Janikowski, for a 26-yard field goal. The Polish Hammer hit it dead center, and the Raiders extended their lead to 27-7 with less than a minute remaining in the third quarter.

Just a bad game all around for the Vikings this afternoon. We'll see if the Vikings can salvage a little something over the last quarter of play.
