Vikings at Packers: Five Game-Changing Plays

Vikings at Packers: Five Game-Changing Plays

Looking back at the most important plays from the wild 29-29 tie at Lambeau Field. Well, that was certainly...something. The Week 2 game between the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers had just about everything. All three phrases on both sides of the ball had a roller coaster ride on Sunday afternoon. There were blocked kicks, missed kicks, terrible penalties, missed penalties, amazing passes, awful drops, incredible catches, and crushing heartbreaks for fans of both teams. There were enough intertwining storylines to fill a dozen tomes of football annals all crammed into three hours...

Vikings at Packers Preview: The Hero This Rivalry Deserves

Vikings at Packers Preview: The Hero This Rivalry Deserves

Sunday’s clash at Lambeau Field between two Super Bowl hopefuls should be epic, but only if Green Bay has their Dark Knight. “I broke you. How have you come back?” I was reminded of this line from Bane in The Dark Knight Rises last Sunday night. After the villain had broken Batman’s back and left him to rot in a pit, Bane was shocked to find that the Caped Crusader had returned to thwart his takeover of Gotham. That must have been exactly how the Chicago Bears felt. After knocking Aaron Rodgers out of the game and taking a 20-0 lead in the third quarter, the future Hall of Fame...

Same Old Treadwell? Don’t Give Up On Him Yet

Same Old Treadwell? Don’t Give Up On Him Yet

After two very disappointing seasons, Laquon Treadwell showed some promise in the preseason. So why was it more of the same in Week 1? At the conclusion of the Minnesota 2018 Training Camp, I was convinced that this was the season of Laquon Treadwell. I didn’t think the he was poised for 90 catches and 1,300 yards this year. I didn’t think he was going to magically make us stop regretting passing on Michael Thomas. I simply thought that 2018 was going to be the year that Treadwell finally started making some meaningful contributions to the Vikings offense. He had a very promising camp...

Vikings vs. 49ers: Five Game-Changing Plays

Vikings vs. 49ers: Five Game-Changing Plays

Looking back at the five most important plays from the Vikings’ season-opening win against the 49ers. In my game preview on Thursday, I predicted that the Vikings would struggle at times on offense but ride their incredibly talented defense to a 24-13 victory over the 49ers. I thought we might see a few hiccups from Kirk Cousins & company working out the kinks, but their day wouldn’t be nearly as rough as Jimmy Garoppolo and the up-and-coming-but-not-quite-there-yet 49ers. I was way off. They won 24-16. But hey, the rest of the stuff was basically right! (Please ignore me getting...

Vikings vs. 49ers Preview: It’s Only Temporary

Vikings vs. 49ers Preview: It’s Only Temporary

No matter what happens between Minnesota and San Francisco on Sunday, both teams will probably look much different by the end of the season. September is a bittersweet month for Minnesotans, as Labor Day marks the unofficial end to Summer. Social media feeds transition from vacation pictures to obligatory back-to-school front porch/chalkboard photos. Lakes and cabins are traded in for rakes and cardigans. The weather is more tolerable, but we’re also reminded that Winter’s icy death grip is just around the corner. We get less daylight, but we get lots more football. It has been an...

Vikings at Titans Preseason 2018: Five Game-Changing Plays

Vikings at Titans Preseason 2018: Five Game-Changing Plays

Looking back at the five most important plays from the Vikings’ preseason win over Tennessee. WE MADE IT! Congratulations, football fans. We have officially endured the dog days of summer. The slog of Training Camp and preseason is finally in our rear view mirrors. The next time we see the Minnesota Vikings take the field, it will actually count. And that’s a good thing, because the football we watched last night wasn’t exactly thrilling. With most of the starters on the bench, it was a death match between a lot of players that will be unemployed by Labor Day. It was also a death...

Vikings vs. Seahawks Preseason 2018: Five Game-Changing Plays

Vikings vs. Seahawks Preseason 2018: Five Game-Changing Plays

Looking back at the five most important plays from the Vikings’ preseason win over Seattle. The Minnesota Vikings won the All-Important Third Preseason Game® by narrowly dispatching the Seattle Seahawks 21-20 on Friday night. Kirk Cousins threw for 182 yards in one half of action, Dalvin Cook played for the first time in over ten months, and the defense had plenty of impressive performances throughout the night. All is well heading into the 2018 regular season! We’ll see you in February in Atlanta! Sorry, forgot to use my sarcasm font there. While there were plenty of bright spots to...

Vikings vs. Jaguars Preseason 2018: Five Game-Changing Plays

Vikings vs. Jaguars Preseason 2018: Five Game-Changing Plays

Looking back at the five most important plays from the Vikings’ choppy preseason loss to Jacksonville. Saturday’s preseason tilt between the Minnesota Vikings and Jacksonville Jaguars was an ugly affair in every sense of the word. The first team offense that looked so efficient a week ago in Denver was sloppy and disorganized. Yellow flags littered the field while players and fans alike tried to figure out whether tackling was still legal in the NFL. And the injuries—oh, the injuries. Eric Sugarman was on the field more than the starting offense. There were more air casts than scoring...

Vikings Cut Kai Forbath, Free Up Five Total Roster Spots With Other Moves

Vikings Cut Kai Forbath, Free Up Five Total Roster Spots With Other Moves

The Minnesota Vikings ended their kicker competition among a slew of injury-related roster moves. After the rash of injuries suffered in Saturday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, a few roster moves were anticipated in the fallout. We ended up with more than expected. The Minnesota Vikings removed no fewer than five players from the active roster on Monday morning for a variety of reasons. The biggest name on the list was the release of Kai Forbath, which put an official end to the preseason kicking competition between Forbath and Daniel Carlson. Forbath’s chances of making the...
