Vikings take halftime lead, somehow

The switch has been off for five weeks. Maybe it’s finally back on.

After falling behind 14-0 in Washington, the Vikings have stormed back, taking the lead at halftime.

A touchdown drive that knotted that game late in the half was followed by a Washington fumble, a short field, a throw to Stefon Diggs, and a short pass to Adam Thielen for the score has given the Vikings a 20-14 lead at intermission.

And, yes, it’s 20-14 and not 21-14 because kicker Blair Walsh missed another extra point, his fourth of the season — and quite possibly his last one with the Vikings.

The Vikings tried out six kickers earlier this week, but they decided to stick with Walsh. That may change after this game, regardless of the outcome.

The outcome won’t be close if the Vikings keep feeding Diggs, a local product who has 102 yards on five catches.
