MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota's offense has gained a grand total of 43 net yards in three possessions in the second half, and time is running out.

The Vikings haven't displayed a ton of faith in quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, and his two biggest completions of the half have come on tight end screens to Jim Kleinsasser. Otherwise, he's looked far from sharp in the biggest second half of his career.

The Vikings are taking over at their 19-yard line and might not have too many more chances to grab control of this game. We're going to focus in here on the last eight minutes and we'll be with you shortly after the game.
