This was a difficult way to suffer a first loss, but the only problem the Vikings had Sunday that threatens their season is the play of the offensive line.

Wins for No. 1 Vikings ... and No. 32 Browns?! [NFL Picks]

Each Saturday morning during the NFL season, we’ll wake up early, take a hearty cut at predicting the unpredictable league, wince at how it went the week before and ponder the definition of insanity. A funny thing happened on the way to a two-game “Upset Special” winning streak last Sunday. For some reason, Richard Sherman was allowed by render Julio Jones’ right arm inoperable by reaching out and grabbing it before Matt Ryan’s deep ball arrived in the closing minutes. The Falcons lost 26-24 at Seattle, Sherman went one yellow flag down to the football gods and, from this blog’s...

Vikings' Brian Robison could be a difference maker vs. the Eagles [X-factor]

Every week following the Access Vikings Gameday Preview podcast we’ll delve deeper into the player Andrew Krammer pegged as a key difference maker for the upcoming game.  The evolution of Brian Robison is one of the reasons for the Vikings defensive line’s success this season. Robison, the 33-year-old defensive end in his 10th NFL season, has embraced new assignments in the playbook that have him, at times, running away from the quarterback. Though on Sunday in Philadelphia, the Vikings have to like his outlook going forward in the upcoming matchup with Eagles rookie right tackle...

Vikings DC George Edwards apologizes for DWI arrest: 'It's a one-time deal'

George Edwards  apologized Thursday for his DWI arrest five months ago when speaking publicly for the first time since the incident became known this week. “I know everyone knows about my situation from the spring. I want to say publicly as I’ve done privately that I apologize to our organization, our owners, our players, everybody involved in this organization for any negative light that has been shined upon because of this poor decision I made,” Edwards said before taking questions. “It was definitely my responsibility, it was a poor decision on my part. And I’ve taken the steps...

Vikings vs. Carson Wentz's Eagles will alter loyalties in Fargo

Brent Tehven is a former North Dakota State football player, part owner of an NDSU-themed bar in Fargo, an acquaintance of Bison-turned-Eagles QB Carson Wentz … and a season-ticket holder for the Vikings. So when the Vikings travel to play Wentz’s Eagles on Sunday in Philadelphia, Tehven like many others will have an interesting set of loyalties. “Fans are going to cheer for the Vikings but also for Carson,” said Tehven, a reserve defensive end for the Bison from 2000-2003 and a West Fargo High graduate. “It won’t be a heated rivalry. They want to see him do well. If he goes 28...

Eagles were sloppy, sloppy, sloppy in Washington loss [Scouting the Eagles]

What a sloppy, sloppy game the Eagles just played while losing 27-20 at Washington. So sloppy that their rookie quarterback, Carson Wentz, was one of the least messiest, and he threw as many incompletions (11) as completions. Or, let’s put it this way: The Eagles got an interception return for a touchdown and a kickoff return for a touchdown and still never once had control of the game. Based on the Eagles’ most recent game film, there’s a reason the Vikings are favored by 2 1/2 points at Philly this week: They’re better, and better-coached. Unfortunately for those of us who’d like...
