Lions At Vikings: Kyle Rudolph Gets To The End Zone

The Minnesota Vikings needed to answer the Detroit Lions' latest touchdown, and that's exactly what they did on a very impressive drive.

After completing 10-of-11 passes in the third quarter of play, Christian Ponder picked up where he left off, moving the Vikings down the field with relative ease. One of the big targets on the drive was tight end Kyle Rudolph, who converted several third downs on the drive for Minnesota, including one that got them to the Detroit 20-yard line.

In first-and-10 from the 20, Ponder dropped back and found Rudolph again in the left flat. Rudolph made one man miss, and got an outstanding block from Michael Jenkins to allow him to go to the end zone untouched for the score.

With a 22-10 lead, the Vikings went for two, and they did it the easy way. . .handing the ball to Adrian Peterson and letting him crash into the end zone. Those two points gave the Vikings a two-touchdown lead at 24-10.

We've just started the fourth quarter of play, and the Vikings now lead the Lions by a score of 24-10.
