Vikings make big push toward Texans upset

There’s still time left, but perhaps not enough to change the outcome.

The Vikings have scored another touchdown, culminating a 10-play, 64-yard drive.  The run from Toby Gerhart pushed the lead to 17, with the Vikings up 23-6.

Less than five minutes remain for what would be a highly unlikely comeback — especially since the Texans would have to quadruple their current scoring output to win.

If the Texans pull it off, they’ll have to do without running back Arian Foster, who is in the locker room.  The official designation is that he is ill.

Most Texans fans can currently relate.
