Week #8 Vikings at Buccaneers

The game was billed as 2-5 team play at a 1-5 team, in other words, not an important game. And, by the play in the first half, it was named accordingly. Both teams jockeyed for field position for most of the first half with the Vikings having a slight edge in that category. The only […]

Week #6 Lions at Vikings

This morning sipping coffee, waiting for the Vikings noon kickoff with the Lions, I wondered what team would show up today. It didn’t take long for me to get my answer. The Lions took the opening kickoff and marched down the field for an opening drive touchdown that took just under 4 minutes. The Vikings […]

Week #5, Vikings at Packers

I waited until the dust settled from the Vikings v Packers game last night to write this post. But it didn’t help get that bitter taste we all get when Christian Ponder is declared the Vikings starter. I was one of many Vikings fans that had hoped Ponder would have been released before the regular […]

Week #4 ATL at Mn

It appears that there is a new gunslinger in the Twin Cities, and his name is Teddy Bridgewater. Teddy made the first start of his pro career for the Vikings and he didn’t disappoint the fans. After the Viking defense stopped the Falcons on their first possession, the crowd knew it was “Teddy Time“. Teddy […]

MN at NO Week # 3

Three weeks into the 2014-15 season and it’s clear as the nose on my face that the Vikings miss Adrian Peterson. The viking run defense seemed to have many holes and their run offense didn’t do much either. The one bright spot was the play of Teddy Bridgewater. Bridgewater entered the game after Matt Cassel […]

NE at MN Week #2

Julian Edelman single handedly beat the Vikings in their outdoor premier at TCF Bank Stadium. The crowd was loud at kickoff, but that only lasted for about the first 10 minutes of the first quarter. The Vikings opened the game with nice drive that culminated with a 25 yard Matt Cassel to Matt Asiata touchdown […]

Vikings handle Rams on the road, start season 1-0

    Cordarrelle Patterson was a one man highlight reel for the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. His 67 yard touchdown run in the 3rd quarter was icing on the cake as the Vikings started the regular season 1-0 with a win in St Louis, 34-6. The Vikings offense had a slow start, only scoring 13 […]

Preseason Week #3 Review Mn vs KC

The night was slightly hotter than the Vikings were used to in Mankato. That didn’t seem to affect the Vikings play though. The first team offense looked solid, with the highlight being a 53 ¬†yard pitch and catch, Matt Cassel to Cordarrelle Patterson for six points. The offensive line looked much better in their pass […]

Pre-Season Week #2 Review MN vs ARI

Two weeks of preseason football under the Zimmer regime and the most noticeable differences from the past coaching staff is even though it’s only preseason, coach Zimmer is very fired up and animated on the sidelines. Dare I say, more involved in the game. I am starting to see some real good chemistry between Matt […]

Raiders Vs Vikings @ TCF Bank Stadium

The Viking pre-season opener was the first home outdoor game since Dec 29th 2010. The weather was a little more tolerable this time around. The field was fitted with new turf and heating tubes under it for those Dec. and hopefully Jan home games. Vikings kick off. Raiders go 3 and out (with a penalty). […]
