Vikings Vs. Falcons Update: Atlanta Still Leads Minnesota 17-7

The Atlanta Falcons are still holding a 17-7 lead in the third quarter over the Minnesota Vikings in the Georgia Dome. Th Falcons fan base held their collective breath's in the third quarter as Roddy White went down from what seemed to be an injury to his right shoulder.

White got up slow and went to the bench, but all reports seem to be that the wide receiver will be able to return to the game.

The Vikings were able to get on the board with a Toby Gerhart touchdown in the third quarter, his first of the season, to get Minnesota on the board. Christian Ponder has used his elusiveness to give the Falcons defense fits and has kept plays alive.

If the Falcons can hang on to their lead, Atlanta will move to 7-4.
