SORT BY Relevancy
The Minnesota Vikings will do battle with the Atlanta Falcons Sunday. The Vikes are 1-2 and home for the second time this season. The Falcons are 2-1 and on the road to take on a young Vikings teams with Teddy Bridgewater making his first NFL start. The Vikings must win Sunday or their season will continue its downward spiral. That would be three games in a row our beloved Vikes would have lost. They haven't won a game since Adrian Peterson was told not to come back into the building.
This is my first Minnesota Viking show. I hope you will join me and lets talk Vikings football. The call in number to the show is 646 200 4913
The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Edmond Robinson
Edmond Robinson, Jr. is an American football linebacker for the Minnesota Vikings of the National Football League. He played college football at Newberry. He was drafted by the Vikings in the seventh round, 232nd overall of the 2015 NFL Draft.
This is only week 11, in the NFL, but the game between the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings will go a long way to determine the NFC North Champion. The Vikings enter the game 7-2, while the Packers are 6-3. If the Vikings beat the Packers they will have a two game lead in the win column, and making the week 17 matchup more intriguing.
Minnesota has not allowed more than 21 points during their five game winning streak. Mike Zimmer came to Minnesota with a strong defensive background. He has implemented a scheme that has them ranked second in the NFL, in points allowed (17.1). Teams have had a hard time running the ball against the eigth ranked rush defense. Evan talks about the sack stat being overrated, which could be the case with the Vikings. They rank 16th in the league with 21 sacks but have gotten enough pressure to be effective and rank 15th against the pass. Offensively, the Vikings will lean on Adrian Peterson who leads the league in rushing, with 961 yards. Peterson averages 21.7 carries per game. Teddy Bridgewater has been average at best, boosting and 84.6 quarterback rating, which actually ranks 34th among all NFL quarterbacks.
The Green Bay Packers are trying to figure out where the disconnect is on offense. During the three game losing streak; the Packers have only scored 17 first half points. The last two weeks have seen the offense come alive in the fourth quarter and tried to mount comebacks. Against the Carolina Panthers they fell yards short, and against the Detroit Lions they missed a two point conversion and a field goal. The Packers have abandoned the run game, and it will be no easy task getting it going against the Vikings. The offense line that was keeping Aaron Rodgers clean in the beginning of the season, have been dominated for three straight weeks. Finally, they need to get their playmakers into space and make plays.
New England looked human beating the New York Giants on a 54 yard field goal by Stephen Gostowski. The Giants almost pulled off the victory, kicking the go ahead field with 1:47 remaining. Tom Brady converted a fourth and ten during the last drive, finding Danny Amendola for a 12 yard gain. The win keeps the Patriots perfect season in place while holding a four game lead over the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets.
The Houston Texans did enough to hand the Cincinnati Bengals their first loss. They held Andy Dalton to 197 passing yards, and kept the Bengals out of the end zone. T.J. Yates tossed a 22 yard touchdown to DeAndre Hopkins, on the fourth play of the fourth quarter that gave the Texans the go ahead score. The Texans win puts them in a tie with the Indianapolis Colts for first place, in the AFC South.
The Broncos have lost two in a row, and Peyton Manning. Manning sustained and injury in the loss to the Chiefs. Manning had five completions and four interceptions. Brock Osweiler will get the start against the Chicago Bears. Even with the loss the Broncos still hold a three game lead over the Chiefs.
The Minnesota Vikings have put together a five game winning streak. This winning streak coupled with a three game Packers losing streak, puts the Vikings in first place. At 7-2, the Vikings have quietly made enough plays to win football games. Adrian Peterson added another 200 yard rushing game to his Hall of Fame resume. His sixth 200-yard game ties him with O.J. Simposon for the most in NFL history. The Vikings intercepted Derek Carr twice, and shutout the Raiders in the second half en route to a 30-14 victory.
Jack Del Rio took over an Oakland Raider team that had not made the playoffs in 12 years. The best record over that span was 8-8. The Raiders enter week nine with a 4-4 record and a legitimate chance to make a run at the playoffs. Mike Zimmer took over the Vikings before the 2014 season. After a 7-9 record, in his first season, the Vikings already have a 6-2 mark and are tied with the Green Bay Packers for first place, in the NFC North. This game is more of a must win for the Raiders as they are battling the rest of the AFC for a wildcard. The Vikings still have two games against the Packers that could determine first place.

ManS and Silk call the Vikings vs Lions NFC North battle. Halftime reports and postgame reports as well
The NFC North is wide open for the team who wants it the most - and that just might be the Minnesota Vikings. With Adrian Peterson back in the line up and a more seasoned quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater - but is that enough to take on their tough division and conference?

The Green Bay Packers faced an undefeated team for the second week in a row and had the same result; a loss. The Packers have now dropped two games back to back after starting the season 6-0. After falling behind 27-7 at halftime, the Packers mounted a second half comeback that fell four yards short. Aaron Rodgers was intercepted by Thomas Davis, on a fourth and goal play with 1:54 remaining.
Rodgers was under duress the entrie day, and it proved costly on the last play. The Panthers sacked Rodgers five times, but applied constant pressure throughout the game. Not only did the Panthers apply pressure they shut down an ineffective Packers running game. The Packers finished the game with 71 rushing yards on 19 carries, for an average of 3.7 yards. Eddie Lacy carried five times for 10 yards, including a fumble.
Cam Newton has now led the Panthers to 12 consecutive regular season wins. He finished the day 15 for 30 and 297 yards along with throwing a season high three touchdown passes. Newton added 57 yards on the ground and his rushing touchdown gave the Panthers a 10-7 lead early in the second quarter. The Panthers now have a two game lead for home field advantage over every team in the NFC.
