The Minnesota Vikings dug themselves into a big hole early, but at least they're not rolling over or anything.
After Jason Hanson kicked the ball out of bounds after the Detroit Lions' latest score, the Vikings went to work again, with Christian Ponder leading another very nice drive. He had a couple of very nice throws as the Vikings moved down the field, and ultimately got the Vikings to first-and-goal at the Detroit 7-yard line after a completion to Devin Aromashodu.
On that first-and-goal play, the Vikings went to their most reliable non-Adrian Peterson player, Percy Harvin, and he brought in a 7-yard pass from Ponder for his seventh touchdown of the season. With the touchdown, the Vikings cut the deficit to 28-14.
The Vikings have forced the Lions to punt again, and they will start at midfield trailing 28-14. Detroit got the ball first in this one, but the Vikings are fighting back, trailing 28-14 with a little less than six minutes left in the first half.
