The Minnesota Vikings might have a quarterback controversy going into 2012. . .but rather than being between Christian Ponder and Andrew Luck, it might just be between Christian Ponder. . .and Joe Webb.
Webb has taken the Vikings to their third touchdown in as many drives, giving the Vikings a 30-23 lead in response to a field goal that had tied the game for the Washington Redskins.
It took the Vikings six plays to move 72 yards, half of which came on a big third down throw from Joe Webb to Percy Harvin for 36 yards on a 3rd-and-10 play. After that, Webb found Devin Aromashodu for a 23-yard gain, and two plays later found Harvin in the right flat again, and Harvin did the rest for an 8-yard touchdown pass.
Webb is now 4-for-5 passing for 84 yards and two touchdowns, and also has a touchdown run since coming in to relieve a concussed Christian Ponder.
Time is winding down in the fourth quarter at FedEx Field, and the Minnesota Vikings lead the Washington Redskins by a score of 30-23.
