Vikings At Redskins Score Update: Joe Webb Puts The Vikings Ahead

The Minnesota Vikings are losing bodies left and right, but they're certainly not going down yet.

After losing Adrian Peterson to a brutal left knee injury and Christian Ponder to a concussion, the Vikings set up shop at their own 25-yard line. Then, we got a surprise screening of The Replacements, as Toby Gerhart took a handoff from Joe Webb and jetted off for a 67-yard run down to the Redskins' 8-yard line. Two plays later, Webb took a snap, played the option game with Gerhart, and found his way into the end zone for a 9-yard touchdown run to give the Vikings a 17-13 lead.

(Sorry, with all the injury updates and everything, we missed Graham Gano's 52-yard field goal that gave the Redskins a 13-10 lead. Momentarily.)

So, the action is suddenly fast and furious at FedEx field, and with about ten minutes left in the third quarter the Vikings hold a 17-13 lead over the Washington Redskins.
