Will 20 points do it for Minnesota?

MINNEAPOLIS -- Here’s the question I have here at the Metrodome as the fourth quarter approaches: How many points will be enough for Minnesota?
The Vikings just extended their lead to 10 points on Ryan Longwell’s 22-yard field goal. But the Ravens offense has seemed more energetic in the second half, getting a nice scoring run from tailback Ray Rice and finding tight end Todd Heap on a number of occasions. It’s currently 20-10 and the Vikings’ offense hasn’t had much scoring bite since opening the game with two touchdown drives.
I’m not sure if 20 points will be enough to win this game. We’ll know soon enough.
