Vikings 30, Titans 7

Harvin, Ponder lift streaking Vikings

MINNEAPOLIS — Percy Harvin pounded through the Titans' defense for one touchdown rushing and another receiving, and caught eight passes for 108 yards for the Vikings, who have given up a combined 33 points in winning three straight.

"A couple times (defenders) tell me, 'Slow down, I can't catch up,'" the former UF standout said. "I look at them and laugh and say, 'That's my job.' "

"He's the best player I've ever played with," running back Adrian Peterson said.

Former FSU standout Christian Ponder threw his first two interceptions after 143 attempts without one but finished 25-for-35 for 258 yards and two scores.

Tennessee's Chris Johnson gained 24 yards on 15 carries, trying fruitlessly to find room.

"We are who we are. There's no draft coming up. There's no adding more players and getting new coaches," Titans coach Mike Munchak said.
