It was another close game for the Minnesota Vikings, but this time it was a 53-yard field goal by Adam Vinatieri in the final minute that gives Andrew Luck his first victory in the NFL.

The final, Colts 23, Vikings 20. 

After another slow start by the Vikings, where mistakes on both sides of the ball found them trailing 20-6 in the fourth quarter.

Two fourth quarter touchdown passes by Christian Ponder tied things up before Luck moved the Colts 45 yards in four plays to set up the game-winning field goal.

On the day both quarterbacks ended up with very good stats.

Ponder finished 27-of-35 for 245 yards and two touchdowns resulting in a 114.6 passer rating.

Luck was 20-of-31 for 224 yards and two touchdowns as well. His passer rating was 107.4.

Donnie Avery was Luck's favorite target, catching nine passes for 111 yards, and Reggie Wayne had six for 71 yards and a touchdown.

Both teams are 1-1.

Next week the Colts host the Jaguars, the Vikings victim in Week 1, and the Vikings will face a very difficult test when the 49ers come to Minnesota.
