Defense Lowers the Boom on Arizona as Vikings Top Cardinals 21-14

It was another dominant performance by the Vikings defense Sunday, more than making up for a lackluster offense, as the Vikings topped the Cardinals 21-14 to move to 5-2 on the season. Adrian Peterson led the ground game for the Vikings, rushing for 153 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries. The rest of the […]

Peterson Scores Three First Quarter TD’s; Powers Vikings to 34-10 Win Over Cardinals

A long season finally got a little better Sunday as Adrian Peterson powered in for three first-quarter touchdowns to build a huge lead as the Vikings beat up the Arizona Cardinals for a 34-10 win. “It felt good just to get a ‘W’ first and foremost and get out of this slump. It was a […]

Columnist Jean-Paul Bergeaux’s List of Things

Things I know. By Jean-Paul Bergeaux The NFL is having a great year. Not particularly because of great play, but because of how tight every division is. With 5 games left to play, not a single division has a clear leader. In fact no division leader is ahead by more than 1 game. In fact […]

The Pack Is One and Done

Against all odds, Aaron Rodgers led the Packers from a seemingly impossible-to-overcome deficit to tie the Cardinals at 45 to 45. In a fitting manner, Aaron Rodgers gets crunched, loses the ball, kicks it to keep it live, which then gets nabbed out of the air and run back for a defensive touchdown. The Packers […]

Overtime In The Desert

After 90 points were scored in a 45 to 45 game between the Packers and the Cardinals, Neil Rackers missed a short field goal to send the game into overtime. Neither team has been playing well on  defense, so one can imagine that the coin toss is very important in the outcome of this game. […]

At halftime, the Cardinals hold a 14 point lead over the Packers.  The first half was pretty much Arizona’s game, and barring a complete implosion, they should be booking a trip to Bourbon Street very soon.

Breaking It Down

Here are a few notes about where the Vikes currently stand: NFC NORTH The Vikings have almost (Almost!) sealed up the NFC North, but the Packer continue to hang on.  With three weeks left, the Vikings need to manage one win or have the Packers lose once in order to clinch the division title.  Hopefully […]

Join In On The Live Blog

I plan to host another Live Blog during Sunday Night’s game against the Cardinals. I’ve noticed attendance on the blog tends to be about double when the game is played away from home, so it’ll be nice to have lots of participation. The blog will be up and running about a half hour before kickoff.  […]

Hitting The Road

The Vikings haven’t played a game away from home since November 1st’s visit to Green Bay.  Since then, they have had a bye week and three consecutive home games. On Sunday, a full 36 days later, the Vikings will be traveling to Arizona to take on the Cardinals. It will be interesting to see how […]
