Titans At Vikings: Ponder And Rudolph Connect For A Score

The Minnesota Vikings answered the Tennessee Titans first touchdown of the afternoon with another touchdown of their own, as it appears that quarterback Christian Ponder has shaken off the two interceptions that he threw earlier in the afternoon.

After an onside kick attempt by the Titans was ruled to have gone out of bounds, the Vikings started their drive at the Tennessee 36-yard line. The Vikings only needed six plays to get the job done from there, as they concluded the drive with Ponder finding a leaping Kyle Rudolph in the back of the end zone for a 15-yard touchdown connection.

The Vikings have now increased their lead to 30-7 on Ponder's second touchdown pass of the afternoon. For the game, Ponder has completed 25-of-35 passes for 258 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions. Adrian Peterson's day appears to be finished after 17 carries for 88 yards, as Toby Gerhart was the one carrying the mail for the Vikings on this last drive.

We have 6:38 left at the Metrodome, and the Vikings appear poised to move to 4-1 on the 2012 season as they lead the Tennessee Titans 30-7.
