The Minnesota Vikings (2-2) battled back, but ultimately came up just short, falling to the Denver Broncos (4-0) 23-20 yesterday afternoon in the Mile High City. Playing behind a patchwork offensive line, Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater was sacked seven times. The Vikings have a bye next week.
The Minnesota Vikings (2-1) and Denver Broncos (3-0) will face each other for the first time since 2003 in a game with both teams having winning records. Can the Denver defense shut down Adrian Peterson? Can the Minnesota defense get to Peyton Manning? The Broncos are 7 point favorites, but I have a sneaky good feeling about this one.
The Twins are fighting for a playoff spot, the Vikings are off to a nice start, the Wild are starting a new season, the Timberwolves are loaded with young talent, and the Lynx are in the WNBA finals...
Following the week one loss, the Minnesota Vikings have now put together back to back wins, and climb for the second straight week in ESPN'sNFL Power Rankings. The Vikings started the season at #25, then climbed to #16 last week. Click on in to see how far they've risen this week.
The Minnesota Vikings (2-1) defeated the visiting San Diego Chargers (1-2) 31-14 this afternoon at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Teddy Bridgewater completed 13 of 24 for 121 yards.

According to Dick's Sporting Goods (soon to be moving into Waite Park's former Kmart location), Detroit Lion Calvin Johnson is the top-selling NFL jersey at the beginning of this year's NFL season in Minnesota (which calls for big WTF?). Cordarrelle Patterson held that spot one year ago.
Following the first week fiasco in San Francisco, the Minnesota Vikings were ranked 25th out of the 32 teams in ESPN's weekly NFL Power Rankings. And frankly, after watching the crap game against the 49ers I think that ranking was kind. They make a nice jump this week. Here's the digits.
The Minnesota Vikings (1-1) led the entire way en route to a 26-16 win over the Detroit Lions (0-2) this afternoon at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Adrian Peterson rushed for 134 yards, and Teddy Bridgewater ran for a touchdown, and threw for another.
The Minnesota Vikings (0-1) will be looking to rebound from their woeful performance on Monday night in San Francisco, when they host the Detroit Lions (0-1) this afternoon at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. The Vikes are 3-point favorites.
The Minnesota Vikings (0-1) were dominated by the San Francisco 49ers (1-0) from wire to wire tonight at Levi's Stadium. From the 49ers opening drive to Kaepernick taking a knee to end the game -- the Vikings appeared out coached, over powered, and out played.
The Minnesota Vikings and San Francisco 49ers will be the final two teams to get their seasons underway when they face off tonight on Monday Night Football at Levi Stadium. This is Teddy Bridgewater's first season-opening start, and the first time Adrian Peterson has seen action since last September.
