Buccaneers At Vikings: Minnesota Extends Lead Back To Ten, 20-10

After not getting a lot of opportunities in the second half thus far, the Minnesota Vikings put together a fairly impressive drive to make their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a two-score affair, pushing the lead back to 20-10.

The Vikings' scoring drive covered 69 yards in 12 plays, taking nearly six minutes off of the clock. There were a couple of big plays on the drive, the biggest being a pass interference penalty against Tampa Bay linebacker Mason Foster while Percy Harvin was attempting to make a catch. The 23-yard penalty moved the Vikings inside the Tampa Bay 40-yard line, and they got as far as the Tampa Bay 11, but had to settle for Ryan Longwell's second field goal of the afternoon, a 29-yarder that gave the Vikings a larger cushion.

With just under ten minutes remaining in the ball game from the Metrodome, the Minnesota Vikings continue to lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, with the score now sitting at 20-10.
