    The Minnesota Vikings welcomed the AFC West Denver Broncos to Mall of America field in Week 13. It has been a long and rough year but today made everything feel much better. Chad Greenway came back from being injured and made a huge impact. The defense played lights out only giving up 6 points and 161 total offensive yards.​

    Christian Ponder showed why the Minnesota Vikings took him in the 1st round with the 12th overall pick as he threw 15 times and completed 13 of them. He ended the day with 183 yards passing and 1 touchdown to Percy Harvin. Ponder looked like a veteran out there as he made the right reads and smart decisions. Adrian Peterson ran 21 times for 90 yards and found the endzone twice while Toby Gerhart ran 6 times for 46 yards. Lorenzo Booker also scored on a 12 yard run to seal the deal. Percy earned his money grabbing 6 receptions for 103 yards as he frustrated the Broncos defensive coordinator all game long.​

    Great win for the Purple and Gold as they get their 3rd win of the year! The Vikings take on the NFC North divisional foe Detroit Lions next week in what should be an interesting match-up.​
