2022 Linear Super Bowl Title currently on hold

2022 Linear Super Bowl Title currently on hold

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports So it is written, so shall it be done As you know, we’ve been tracking the Linear Super Bowl championship for this season. It started when the Minnesota Vikings “won their Super Bowl” back in Week 1 over a not-very-good Green Bay team, causing legions of bitter fans to declare that the Vikings actually treated that game with the same level of reverence as a Super Bowl. Because they’re dumb, you see. Unfortunately, the Vikings lost the Linear Super Bowl title the next week to the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles then held onto it for...

NFL officially schedules Colts/Vikings game for Saturday, December 17th

Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports It took them a while If you’ve looked at the Minnesota Vikings 2022 schedule since it was released months ago, their Week 15 matchup with the Indianapolis Colts had a “TBD” next to it. Well, as of just a few moments ago, the T has officially BD’d. The game between the Colts and the Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium in Week 15 will be part of a Saturday tripleheader on the NFL Network on 17 December. And, because the football powers that be are as sick and tired of hearing about “Primetime Kirk” as the rest of us are, they gave us...

Photo by Adam Bettcher/ Another Victory Monday! It’s the start of another week, and once again it’s a VICTORY MONDAY for those of us that are fans of the Minnesota Vikings as they held off the New York Jets on Sunday afternoon. The team may not have won the NFC North yet, thanks to Detroit boatracing Jacksonville, but they’ll win it eventually. They still sit pretty solidly as the second seed in the NFC, which is pretty awesome. With that, we’re moving on to next week’s game against Detroit that would give the Vikings the NFC North if they were to win. The...

Vikings NFC North division title temporarily delayed

Photo by Adam Bettcher/ But it’s coming eventually The Minnesota Vikings, once again, pulled out a thrilling one-score victory on Sunday afternoon, defeating the New York Jets by a score of 27-22 at U.S. Bank Stadium. However, they didn’t get the help they needed to punch their tickets to the NFC playoffs. The Detroit Lions throttled the Jacksonville Jaguars by a score of 40-14 at Ford Field, denying the Vikings the other part of the equation that they needed to wrap up a playoff berth in Week 13.

New York Jets at Minnesota Vikings: Second quarter recap and third quarter discussion

Matt Krohn-USA TODAY Sports The Vikings are now out to a two-score lead We’ve reached halftime in Minneapolis with the Minnesota Vikings leading the New York Jets by a score of 20-6. Minnesota started the quarter with the ball in Jets territory and kept things moving on passes to Justin Jefferson, including a big one that saw him draw a penalty for unnecessary roughness on Jets’ safety Jordan Whitehead. That gave the Vikings a goal-to-go situation from the 4, and Dalvin Cook handled it from there, taking it in for the touchdown! Greg Joseph’s extra point was good,...
