Vikings Vs. Redskins Score Update: Kyle Rudolph Touchdown Gives Vikings 23-20 Lead

For the second straight drive, the Minnesota Vikings moved the ball easily against the Washington Redskins' defense. Minnesota easily moved the ball up the field, eventually cashing in when Joe Webb found tight end Kyle Rudolph for a 17-yard touchdown on a corner route. Ryan Longwell missed the extra point, so Minnesota only leads, 23-20, with 2:41 left in the third quarter.

The two plays before the touchdown were big ones as well. First, Toby Gerhart broke several tackles and ran to midfield on third and inches. On the next play, Percy Harvin took a reverse and raced up the sidelines with blockers in front, finally being pushed out of bounds at the Redskins' 17-yard line. Webb found Rudolph for the touchdown on the very next play.
