Sheldon Richardson says Jets QB Sam Darnold looked ‘cold,’ ‘frustrated’ vs. Vikings

New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold endured his worst outing of the 2018 NFL season against the Minnesota Vikings. It seems defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson has an idea of why he struggled so much. Darnold simply could not get anything going for the Jets offense. According to Steve Serby of the New York Post, Richardson feels the cold may have played […] The post Sheldon Richardson says Jets QB Sam Darnold looked ‘cold,’ ‘frustrated’ vs. Vikings appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Three takeaways from Vikings, Jets game

Three takeaways from Vikings, Jets game

The Vikes have won three straight? You betcha’! The Minnesota Vikings went to the Meadowlands Sunday to hand the New York Jets a 37-17 loss, and extend the win streak to three. The defense was stout, the offense got the job done and the Vikings are now where the team belongs. At the top of the NFC North. Here’s this week’s three takeaways from the Jets’ game: Latavius Murray deserves the starting role in the backfield Dalvin Cook must earn his starting job back when he returns to 100 percent. Why plug him in right away when you have a trusted workhorse in Murray? Also, to me,...

How big was that win yesterday?

How big was that win yesterday?

If you like playoff predictions and odds, it was a pretty big deal Hi kids, how are we feeling this afternoon? A three game win streak that puts the Vikings alone in first place in the NFC North should have you feeling pretty good about the local team and life in general, I would think. But yeah, it’s also Monday, so I get it if things kind of blow today. I have to admit I was a bit worried last week about the Jets game, and I talked about it in this piece right here. A loss against the Jets would have been pretty bad, for any number of reasons. Turns out I was right in thinking how...

Tailgaters at Jets game set Vikings fan's car on fire with grill

Welcome to the Monday edition of The Cooler, where we should all pause mid-morning for a precautionary rest. Let’s get to it: Much was made nine months ago about the awful treatment Vikings fans endured from Eagles fans during the 38-7 NFC title game loss in Philadelphia. To the best of my knowledge, though, not a single Vikings fan had his or her car burned to a crisp in the Lincoln Financial Field parking lot. That treatment was saved for Sunday’s game at the New York Jets and especially unlucky Vikings fan Gina Smith. Smith was on a trip to Boston to celebrate her birthday and decided...

As Vikings' defensive injuries mounted vs. Jets, players like Holton Hill responded

With Mike Hughes lost for the season and the Vikings’ cornerback depth having already taken a hit before Sunday’s game against the Jets, undrafted rookie Holton Hill figured to have a bigger role on defense and special teams. He was asked to do even more in the fourth quarter against the Jets, when Xavier Rhodes had to be helped off the field after spraining his left ankle. The Vikings installed Hill at Rhodes’ right cornerback spot, and on his first play from scrimmage, he intercepted an overthrown pass that Jets quarterback Sam Darnold had intended for Andre Roberts. Hill, who played...

Stock Market Report: Jets

Stock Market Report: Jets

After an up and down start, the Minnesota Vikings had found a little bit of momentum with a modest two game winning streak heading to New York to face the Jets. And if we’re being honest, today was a bit of a microcosm of the Vikings season so far. They had a strong first drive, then struggled, then found their sea legs in the second half and managed to pull away. After three straight wins, the Vikings find themselves alone in first place in the NFC North at 4-2-1, and I think it’s safe to say that Minnesota is back in a groove. Ans thanks to the Jets, it’s a New York Groove, isn’t...

Minnesota Vikings’ Adam Thielen ties old record from ‘61

I had no idea who Charlie Hennigan was a week ago, now I do Kirk Cousins dropped back in the pocket, Adam Thielen moved on the outside of Jets’ cornerback Darryl Roberts, and started to move up the sideline toward the end zone. Cousins seen Thielen, aired it out 36-yards to put it right over Roberts, and into Thielen’s hands for Minnesota’s first touchdown of the game. That was just the start to Thielen’s historic game. For the seventh consecutive game this season, Thielen has recorded over 100-receiving yards. Thielen has tied a record that was set back in 1961 by Charlie...
