How the Vikings came back from down 33-0 to force overtime

The Minnesota Vikings had nothing going for them in the first half on Saturday.

And by nothing, we don’t only mean the zero on the scoreboard.

They were trailing 33-0 and seemed on the verge of a humiliating defeat.

But that’s why they play four quarters.

The Vikings managed to rally against the Indianapolis Colts for 36 second-half points while allowing a lone field goal to tie the score at 36-36 and send the game to overtime.
