It looked like the Vikings weren’t going to be able to stop the Seahawks at the end of the third quarter but some decent pressure did the trick, and Seattle had to punt from midfield at the beginning of the fourth quarter.

The punt landed at the Vikings five yard line, leaving a daunting task ahead of Christian Ponder and the Minnesota offense.

Percy Harvin amazingly reentered the game after suffering an ugly looking hit to his ankle on the previous drive.

Needing to drive 95 yards, Christian Ponder began the drive by scrambling away from pressure for a short gain, but then a simple handoff to Adrian Peterson did the trick to move the chains.  Then a short pass from Ponder to Peterson set up a manageable second down, which was followed by an off-the-mark pass from Ponder towards a tight end.  On third down, Ponder missed badly on a crossing route and the drive ended.

The Vikings will have to get more production from their offense, and perhaps a miracle from their defense, if they are going to come out of this smiling.
