Report: Vikings General Counsel Worked To Keep Adrian Peterson Off The Field

Lost in the lead up to the Minnesota Vikings' 24-21 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday was a story about the ongoing situation with Adrian Peterson. It came from ESPN's Adam Schefter through his FaceBook page, and addresses something that Peterson said in his interview with Tom Pelissero in USA Today. In that interview, there was a bit where Peterson talked about some members of the organization not wanting him back with the team. Unlike Peterson, Schefter named names. . .well, one name, anyway. When Adrian Peterson told USA Today there were people in Vikings' organization who did...

Stock Market Report: Packers

Hey, maybe things aren't going to be so bad after all. Hi kids. This past week was a pretty rough one for me as a Vikings fan. I don't know why, exactly. Well, I know why (bad Bears loss, AP news), but I don't know why those two things affected me like they did. The Vikings have had worse losses, and have dealt with worse off the field news. Maybe not in the same week, but in the Pantheon Of Viking Disappointments, these two things were fairly minor in the grand scheme of things. Still, it set the tone for the coming week, and for me that tone was as depressed and uninterested in a Packers...

Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings Final Score: Minnesota Falls 24-21

In a game where the Minnesota Vikings were supposed to get crushed fairly easily, they hung tough. . .but it wasn't quite enough to get by one of the NFL's hottest teams. The Vikings fell to the Green Bay Packers at TCF Bank Stadium on Sunday afternoon by a score of 24-21 in a game that was a whole lot closer than any of the experts. . .and, quite frankly, many of the fans. . .were expecting it to be. The Packers drew first blood late in the first quarter on a 1-yard touchdown run by Eddie Lacy. The Vikings then answered back on the ensuing drive, with Teddy Bridgewater finding Charles...

Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings: Fourth Quarter Open Thread

To start the first half, the Minnesota Vikings received the kickoff from the Green Bay Packers. Green Bay squibbed it to avoid Cordarrelle Patterson, and Chase Ford rambled with it to the Minnesota 39-yard line to give the Vikings decent starting field position. The drive got started with a holding penalty on Matt Kalil that negated a nice run by Jerick McKinnon, and the drive stalled after a sack of Teddy Bridgewater by Mike Daniels. Jeff Locke came on to punt, and actually hit a pretty good one, putting the Packers at their own 16-yard line to start their first drive of the second...

Packers vs. Vikings Halftime Score Update: Green Bay Leads 14-10

The Packers are up 14-10 in Minnesota, we recap the good, bad and ugly from the first half so far. It was a slow start offensively for both teams, but we finally saw points on the board near the end of the first and quarter as the Green Bay Packers lead the Minnesota Vikings, 14-10. It's unlikely that the Packers will score 50 points or more for the third straight game, with the Vikings proving to be a nice challenge so far. Let's look at the good, bad and ugly from the first half. Good Vikings field position The Packers have unfortunately punted three times today, but punter Tim Masthay...

Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings: Third Quarter Open Thread

The second quarter between the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers got underway with Joe Banyard getting the Vikings into Green Bay territory with two carries for 14 yards, the first two carries of his career. The Vikings got themselves into a 4th-and-5 at the Packers' 39, and elected to go for it. Teddy Bridgewater appeared to throw an interception to Morgan Burnett on the play, but a defensive holding penalty gave the Vikings a fresh set of downs. A pass to Greg Jennings gained nine yards, but the Vikings faced another fourth down, this time 4th-and-1 from the Green Bay 25. Mike...

Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings: Second Quarter Open Thread

To start the Week 12 matchup between the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers, the Vikings won the toss and elected to defer to the second half, giving Green Bay the first crack on offense. Blair Walsh started things the way he usually does, with a touchback, so the Packers started their first drive from their own 20-yard line. The Packers picked up a quick first down on the series, but the Vikings' defense then held firm and forced them to punt the ball away. The return by Marcus Sherels gave the Vikings the ball at their own 21-yard line for their first possession. The Vikings'...

Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings: Game Time, TV Channel, Radio, Streaming and More

Well, folks, I've been a bit lax this week in getting things done, it appears, between some work-related stress and. . .well, the fact that this weekend's game looks more like an execution than a football contest. . .my enthusiasm hasn't been quite where it should be this week. But, we're finally about 24 hours away between this week's contest between the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

Here's The Situation: Packers

There are good situations, and there are bad situations. This would be considered...not good. I've never been a convicted felon on death row...allegedly.  So I can only try and imagine what goes through a person's mind when they hear the phrase 'Dead Man Walking'. I kind of think, at least metaphorically speaking, this is what I feel like waiting for Sunday. It's this sense of foreboding and doom, and when it's over at around 3:00, I'm going to feel like my team has lethally injected all the fun out of me. Again. But you know, maybe the Vikings have something up their sleeves for Sunday....

Frigga's Fantasy Football: Week 12

The Daily Norseman takes a look at the fantasy football prospects of our Minnesota Vikings as they host Green Bay Packers at TCF Bank Stadium in the great outdoors. The fun seemingly never ends with the Vikings.  After an excellent training camp, and an undefeated Preseason, followed by an absolute shellacking of the St. Louis Rams in week 1, the wheels came off the bus.  We lost our star running back temporarily, starting quarterback, starting right guard, starting tight end for most of the season,as it turns out that "temporary" loss of our star running back turned into "for the rest...

Adrian Peterson Talks About Potentially Moving On

In an outstanding interview with our friend Tom Pelissero of USA Today, Adrian Peterson touched on a number of different subjects. I'm not going to crib too much from it, because you really do need to go and read the entire thing for yourself. But there is one particular part that will certainly catch the attention of Minnesota Vikings fans. "I would love to go back and play in Minnesota to get a feel and just see if my family still feels comfortable there," Peterson said. "But if there's word out that hey, they might release me, then so be it. I would feel good knowing that I've given...

Arizona Cardinals try to claim Ben Tate off waivers; Minnesota Vikings beat them out

The Arizona Cardinals reportedly tried to claim RB Ben Tate off of waivers on Thursday. According to Field Yates of ESPN.com, the Cardinals were joined by the Indianapolis Colts and Minnesota Vikings in their waiver request for the former Cleveland Brown.  Unfortunately for the Cardinals, the Vikings were the ones who came away with the 5th-year back, as they have a worse record than the Cardinals. It was a long shot for the Cardinals to come away with anyone off of waivers, as they currently hold the best record in the entire league (no complaints from me here).  However, many people...
