Vikings At Lions Score: Blair Walsh Adds Another Field Goal

Another long drive for the Minnesota Vikings resulted in points, but not quite as many as Minnesota probably would have hoped.

Starting again at their own 9-yard line, the Vikings started off with a nice 19-yard run from Adrian Peterson, and a nice connection from Christian Ponder to Percy Harvin to keep the drive going. Jerome Simpson drew another long pass interference penalty, this one a 26-yarder to put the ball down at the Detroit 23-yard line. A carry by Harvin got the Vikings down to the Detroit 9-yard line, but the drive stalled at that spot, and the Vikings once again had to turn to rookie Blair Walsh.

Walsh was true once again, this time from 27 yards out, extending the Minnesota lead to 13-3. Walsh has not missed this season so far, going 9-for-9 through the first three-plus games of the 2012 season for the Vikings.

We've got 8:14 left in the first half at Ford Field, and the Minnesota Vikings lead the Detroit Lions by a score of 13-3.
