Vikings At Colts Score: Adam Vinatieri Adds Three For The Colts

The Minnesota Vikings appeared to be on the way to another successful drive against the Indianapolis Colts, but the drive was squashed at midfield, and the Colts took advantage.

On a third down play near midfield, Christian Ponder got sacked by the Colts, and fumbled the football. The Colts recovered, and started driving deep into Minnesota territory. The Colts got all the way to the Minnesota 8-yard line, but linebacker Erin Henderson came up with a huge stop on third and short for the Vikings. Indianapolis played it safe and brought in kicker Adam Vinatieri for the field goal, which he converted from 26 yards out to give the Colts a 4-point lead at 10-6.

Minnesota's offense hasn't gotten a lot of resistance from the Colts' defense thus far, but they really haven't found any openings down the field. Ponder has connected on all seven of his pass attempts thus far, but does not yet have a completion longer than 12 yards.

We're just under two minutes to go in the first half in Indianapolis, and the Minnesota Vikings trail the Indianapolis Colts by a score of 10-6.
