Take a second to tell Dave what you think.
The Minnesota Vikings had the game won. Then they didn’t. Then they did. Finally, they didn’t as the Baltimore Ravens scored a touchdown with four seconds remaining to pull off the 29-26 victory Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium. The Vikings units performed all right considering the elements they were playing in all game.
It’s hard to determine which was wackier, the unrelenting snow during the first half, or the flurry of five touchdowns over the final 125 seconds during this unforgettable game between the Baltimore Ravens and Minnesota Vikings.
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has left Sunday’s game against Baltimore with an ankle injury. The injury occurred early in the second quarter on a snowy afternoon and on a wet field. His return is questionable.
Ravens linebacker Elvis Dumervil has been placed on the inactive list for Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings because of a sprained ankle.
The Baltimore Ravens are coming off an emotional victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. So it wouldn’t be a stretch to expect the defending Super Bowl champions to experience a letdown at home Sunday against the struggling Minnesota Vikings.
The Minnesota Vikings will not have quarterback Christian Ponder for Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens due to the concussion suffered in the win over the Chicago Bears. Matt Cassel will take over as the starter with Josh Freeman serving as his backup. The Vikings had five players listed as non-participants, four as limited participants and four as full participants at Thursday’s practice.
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson surpassed the 10,000 yard rushing plateau. He is the 28th player in league history and third quickest to do so. He is grateful for his God-given talent and blessed to have had the players around him to make it happen. Erin Henderson returned last week after missing the previous week with personal reasons, but did not play Sunday against the Chicago Bears. Cordarrelle Patterson’s role in the Vikings offense continues to expand.
Vikings rally to win!
Adrian Peterson has become the third-fastest player in NFL history to reach 10,000 yards rushing for his career. Peterson passed the mark for Minnesota in the fourth quarter Sunday against Chicago in his 101st career game.
Adrian Peterson returned to Minnesota Vikings’ practice on Friday and is probable for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears.
The Minnesota Vikings lost cornerback Xavier Rhodes and wide receiver Joe Webb during the game against the Green Bay Packers with concussions. Neither has formally passed the NFL’s concussion protocol, but the team is still hopeful that will be available Sunday against the Chicago Bears at Mall of America Field. The Vikings listed six players as non-participants, one as a limited participant and four as full participants for Thursday’s practice.
The Minnesota Vikings face another division-rival coming off a disappoint defeat. This Sunday, the Vikings face the Chicago Bears at Mall of America Field. The Bears are 6-5 on the season and have been more successful through the air – both on offense and defense. The Bears have big physical receivers. They have been banged up in the front seven on defense and struggled to stop the opposition on the ground.
Chicago Bears coach Marc Trestman still has faith in his team’s defense.
The Minnesota Vikings have little left to play for, with a fan base largely focused on positioning for next year’s draft pick.
