The Denver Broncos and the Minnesota Vikings are playing something that resembles a football game, but it isn't quite the genuine thing yet. The Minnesota Vikings, though, did take a 12-7 lead with about 3:30 left on the clock.
Minnesota started the scoring drive on its own four-yard line and kept advancing up the field on key passes from Christian Ponder to Devin Aromashodu. Toby Gerhart had two rushes for a combined 30 yard on the drive. But it was Ponder's throw to Kyle Rudolph that resulted in a touchdown.
Ponder throws to Rudolph with plenty of coverage around him. However, Rudolph is able to grab the ball over the heads of the defenders. He comes down in the end zone with possession before the ball is knocked out of his hands. The play was reviewed and upheld.
