Raiders At Vikings Score Update: Kyle Rudolph Gets First NFL Touchdown

The Oakland Raiders are doing everything they can to let the Minnesota Vikings win this football game, ladies and gentlemen.

A promising Vikings' drive, one that was aided by numerous Raider penalties, was thwarted when Christian Ponder was intercepted in the end zone by Oakland's Stanford Routt. It was Ponder's third interception of the afternoon. However, a couple of plays later, Raiders' running back Michael Bush fumbled for the first time in two years, and it was recovered by Brian Robison at the Oakland 38-yard line.

A completion from Ponder to Visanthe Shiancoe put the ball at the Oakland 1-yard line, and on the next play, Ponder faked a handoff to Toby Gerhart, bootlegged out to the right, and found a wide open Kyle Rudolph in the end zone for a 1-yard touchdown pass to cut the Oakland lead to 27-21.

We have five minutes left at the Metrodome, and what looked like it was turning into a laugher has suddenly gotten really interesting, as the Oakland Raiders' lead over the Minnesota Vikings is now just six points at 27-21.
