Sunday's Vikings loss to the Seahawks in Seattle was pretty cut-and-dried if you look at the final score: 41-20. Blowout, right?

Well, yes, for sure. And, maybe, no. The Vikings were within 11 points for a good chunk of the game. The television announcers kept calling the Seahawks "an avalanche" when they get rolling, but these numbers suggest it was really Minnesota's game to give away.

3

Interceptions by the Seattle Seahawks, two off Christian Ponder, one off Matt Cassel.

2

Number of yards rushing Toby Gerhart had (67), compared to Adrian Peterson (65). Gerhart did it on seven caries, AP had 21.

1

Number of fumbles lost by Christian Ponder, out of two.

0

Number of points scored by either team in the third quarter, a suggestion that the game, had it not been for the numbers above, could have been within the Vikings' reach.
