Niners At Vikings Score: Vernon Davis Gets San Francisco Within Four, 17-13

The Minnesota Vikings haven't been able to get it going in the second half of play, and the San Francisco 49ers have taken advantage to make it a four-point ball game.

After a three-and-out by the Minnesota offense. . .their first of the afternoon. . .the Niners put together an 86-yard drive that featured a nice mix of run and pass, including a very nice touch pass from Alex Smith to Vernon Davis to put the ball at the Minnesota 1-yard line. Smith and Davis got it done from there, connecting from one yard out to cut the Minnesota lead to 17-13.

The Vikings have looked like a different team in the second half thus far. . .they need to respond on this drive if they want to recapture any of the momentum that they had in the first half of play.

With 6:17 left in the third quarter of play, the Minnesota Vikings still lead the San Francisco 49ers by a score of 17-13.
