GREEN BAY, Wis. -- So here's the deal as we open the fourth quarter at Lambeau Field.

The Green Bay Packers have a 20-14 lead over the Minnesota Vikings.

Vikings tailback Adrian Peterson has 210 rushing yards.

Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder has completed only five passes, all on a second-quarter scoring drive, and threw two interceptions in Packers territory in the third quarter.

The Packers have their lead because James Starks scored on a rushing touchdown for the first time since Week of 2011.

Phew. Let's see what the fourth quarter brings us.
