Vikings At Redskins Score Update: Kyle Rudolph Catches A Touchdown Pass

We can barely keep up with the action here, folks, but we're doing the best we can.

The Minnesota Vikings, behind the running of Toby Gerhart and the arm of Joe Webb, have taken the lead back from the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field.

Gerhart had two carries on the drive for 22 yards, including a 14-yard blast on 3rd-and-1 to keep the drive going. After that play, Percy Harvin took an end around and sprinted for 31 yards into the Washington red zone at the 19-yard line. A couple of plays later, Joe Webb found Kyle Rudolph in the end zone from 17 yards out to give the Vikings a 23-20 lead.

Yes, Rudolph scores on Christmas Eve. This material writes itself, folks.

Unfortunately, that's where the score stayed, as Ryan Longwell missed the extra point attempt, so the Vikings have a three-point lead over the Redskins instead of a four-point lead.

The Redskins are driving again as the third quarter winds down, but the Vikings are back in the lead by a score of 23-20.
