Raiders vs. Vikings, Score Update: Raiders Add Field Goal, Extend Lead to 27-14

The Oakland Raiders are taking care of business up at the Metronome through three quarters, adding another Sebastian Janikowski field goal in the period to extend their lead to 27-13 early in the fourth quarter. 

Janikowski added his second field goal of the day with about a minute left in the third quarter, a 26 yard shot to cap off a seven play, 16 yard drive started after another Christian Ponder interception. Ponder has really been struggling thus far, completing 13 of 20 of his passes for 120 yards, including a TD to Percy Harvin early in the fourth quarter, his first TD reception of the year. 

As for the Raiders offense, Carson Palmer has been slicing up the Vikings secondary, going 13 for 18 for 126 yards thus far, making it look easy along the way. He's got a passing and rushing touchdown already, and is looking to finish up the Vikes early in the fourth. Micheal Bush has 80 yards on 20 carries including a touchdown as well. 

Adrian Peterson continues to sit out for the Vikings, who left the game in the first quarter with an ankle injury.
