CLEVELAND -- After a stellar first half, the Browns have given up 14 unanswered points and are trailing the Minnesota Vikings 24-13 as we get close to the fourth quarter.

Minnesota is giving Cleveland a heavy dose of Adrian Peterson in the running and passing game. It was a smart move, as the Vikings are moving the chains and putting points on the board a lot easier than the first half.

Vikings quarterback Brett Favre connected with receiver Percy Harvin for a 6-yard touchdown pass with 1:06 left in the third quarter for their most recent score. It looks like talent is eventually showing through for Minnesota against Cleveland.
