The Vikings were forced to start back-up quarterback Joe Webb, who had not attempted a pass in the regular season, after starter Christian Ponder was ruled out with an elbow injury and that had a big impact on the outcome.
Webb struggled to get the Vikings offense going despite a promising start which resulted in a field goal on Minnesota's first drive.
A nine-yard touchdown run from DuJuan Harris and two touchdowns from full-back John Kuhn, the second on a nine yard pass from Aaron Rodgers, put the contest out of reach. (Reporting By Simon Evans in Miami; Editing by Frank Pingue)
