Third Quarter, Where The Saints And Vikings Decided To Score Again

The Saints took advantage of a 61-yard kickoff return by Courtney Roby to start the second half and turned it into a quick four-play drive to score and take their first lead of the NFC Championship. 

A Drew Brees pass to David Thomas got the ball to the Vikings' 20 yard line, and then three straight rushes by Pierre Thomas -- the final a nine-yard TD run -- made it 21-14 in favor of New Orleans. 

Since scoring on their first two drives, the Vikings have gone punt, punt, punt and fumble. Until I started typing that sentence, of course. Minnesota just retied the game once again, making it 21-21 on a one-yard Adrian Peterson dive.
