12:40 PM -  Teddy looks deep down the middle for Rudolph, but Falcons safety Ricardo Allen intercepts it and takes the touchback.

12:37 PM -Vikings wrap the first quarter up 7-0 with a complete showing right now. Offense has 100 yards passing on 8-of-10 by Teddy Bridgewater and 53 yards rushing against a Falcons team that entered allowing a league low 87.4 yards per game; defense gave up 46-yard run, but Barr's forced fumble was even bigger.

12:12 PM - Nice job by Andrew Sendejo in run support on second down, followed by Linval Joseph to force a punt; Vikings allow 1 yard on consecutive plays after RB Tevin Coleman gained 7. Coleman is filling in for the injured Falcons starting RB Devonta Freeman.

12:07 PM - Vikings open with 11-yard gain on first play, Peterson with block from Rudolph, but a loss of 1 sets up back-to-back passes from Teddy to birthday boy Stefon Diggs, but he's unable to get to the sticks.

10:30 AM - With Harrison Smith ruled out yesterday due to a knee injury he suffered last week vs. Green Bay, Antone Exum Jr. will make his first career start today, replacing Smith at safety in the starting lineup. Andrew Sendejo will start opposite Exum Jr.
