Ricky Rubio’s defensive problems starting to show for the Wolves….
The Minnesota Vikings hope to have a decision on their starting quarterback when practices begin on Wednesday. Josh Freeman is expected to be named the starter after Christian Ponder’s latest bad outing. The Vikings lost cornerback Josh Robinson and center John Sullivan during the loss to the Seattle Seahawks, but wide receiver Greg Childs is expected to return to practice for the first time since training camp in 2012.
Christian Ponder had shown some signs of improvement, but he was benched in the final quarter of the Week 11 loss to the Seahawks.
The Minnesota Vikings play their final divisional road game Sunday against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. The two teams are heading in the wrong direction with one combined win since their Week 8 meeting in Minneapolis. The Packers hope to get quarterback Aaron Rodgers sooner rather than later. They are struggling to get anything going without their star quarterback.
What’s next for the Vikings?
While Peyton Manning didn’t light up the scoreboard the way he has so many times this year, he operated the Broncos’ offense and handed the Chiefs their first loss of the season.
The Minnesota Vikings stayed in the game for three quarters, but interceptions on back-to-back drives allowed the Seattle Seahawks to pull away for 41-20 victory at CenturyLink Field. The offense was okay in the first half, but horrible in the second half. The defense was okay in the first half and good in the second half before wearing down.
Christian Ponder says he can play, but Leslie Frazier hasn’t committed to starting the third-year quarterback on Sunday. The former first round draft pick will wear a harness, if he plays. The team listed two players as non-participants, seven players as limited participants and six players as full participants in Thursday’s practice.
Rex Ryan and Rob Ryan are frequently grouped together like some kind of giant, living, breathing, cinnamon bun. But it’s not often that these two animated bros are held in comparison to each other.
Jerome Simpson was arrested Saturday on suspicion of drunk driving. His status for Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks is not known. The status of injured quarterback Christian Ponder for Sunday’s game will be determined later in the week. Harrison Smith is progressing in his rehab and believes he can avoid surgery. Cordarrelle Patterson’s jersey and shoes from the Green Bay Packers game on Oct. 27 are on display at the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Christian Ponder looked like a new man as he completed 17-of-21 passes in the Week 10 victory over the Washington Redskins.
The Minnesota Vikings travel to CenturyLink Field to take on the Seattle Seahawks for the second consecutive season. The Seahawks have an 9-1 record and are poised to make a Super Bowl run. They are expecting to have wide receiver Percy Harvin for the first time this season.
A spectacular game from Drew Brees as he completed 34-of-41 passes for 392 yards with four TDs.
Vikings have now doubled their win total!
Aaron Rodgers went down with a collarbone injury & the Green Bay faithful are concerned. But what would cause a Wisconsinite to be more concerned – the Rodgers injury, or a statewide cheese shortage?
