Raiders At Vikings Score Update: Percy Harvin Cuts Oakland Lead To 27-14

Christian Ponder hasn't given up for the Minnesota Vikings yet, and it would appear that Percy Harvin hasn't yet, either.

On the first play of the fourth quarter at the Metrodome against the Oakland Raiders, Ponder fired a ball to Harvin in the left flat, and the speedster did the rest from there, making Raiders miss and taking it into the end zone for a 26-yard touchdown reception. It was, shockingly, Harvin's first receiving touchdown of the season, and capped a Vikings' drive that went 4 plays and 72 yards in only 59 seconds.

The play was set up by a 42-yard catch and run from Ponder to Devin Aromashodu on the final play of the third quarter that put the Vikings in Oakland territory and set up that particular play.

That touchdown stops a run of 27 consecutive points for the Raiders, and has made things a little more interesting, if nothing else.

With a little more than 14 minutes remaining in the game, the Minnesota Vikings trail the Oakland Raiders by a score of 27-14.
