It looked like it was going to be a long night for the Vikings. The offense was sluggish. The defense was porous. The natives, who witnessed only one win in 2011 before seeing perfection to date in the Metrodome, were getting restless.
But now the Vikings have snapped out of it. Trailing 13-0, they drove 80 yards in only five plays, capping the drive with an 18-yard floater from Christian Ponder to Percy Harvin.
Adrian Peterson has 49 yards rushing, and Harvin has 50 yards receiving. And the home crowd has stopped booing.
