Tuesday Night Football features an athletic quarterback making plays all over the place, including with his feet. He’s finding open receivers, creating space on scrambles and making the right decisions under center. No, I’m not talking about Michael Vick. Minnesota Vikings quarterback Joe Webb has been everywhere and is a big reason the Vikings have a 17-7 lead over the Eagles.
To open the third quarter, Webb and the Vikings drove the length of the field before settling for a field goal. Webb hit Percy Harvin for 46 yards to start the drive and followed it up with a 26-yard strike to Visanthe Shiancoe. He showed off his arm again, throwing a perfect fade to Sidney Rice, though the touchdown was overturned.
It was Webb again the next time the Vikings had the ball, showing off his legs to cap the scoring drive. Webb scrambled around the edge, alluded a couple defenders and tip-toed into the end zone to give the Vikings a commanding 10-point lead over the heavily favored Eagles.
With the third quarter coming to a close, the Vikings are in position to pull off a stunner, leading the Eagles, 17-7.
