Opponent Profile: Vikings Set To Battle The Lions With Slim Playoff Hopes Alive

The Minnesota Vikings play two of their last three games on the road, beginning with the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on Sunday. The Vikings lost to the Lions at TCF Bank Stadium in Week 6, 17-3. The Lions did not have most of their offensive weapons on the field or at 100 percent. The Vikings remain in the playoff picture, but need to win-out and get some help.

First of all, it’s really improbable. So brace yourself. But I’m telling you there’s a chance. The Minnesota Vikings still have an outside chance to make the playoffs in Mike Zimmer’s first season as head coach.

Keidel: Aaron Rodgers Is The Greatest Quarterback To Ever Play American Football

This is not because Rodgers beat Brady last week. The game was whisker-close and you could easily argue that the Patriots would win a rematch on a neutral field. This is about stats, scent, and sense.

Patterson Slipping On The Vikings’ Depth Chart

Cordarrelle Patterson had limited playing time in Sunday’s winning over the Carolina Panthers. The second-year receiver failed to catch the one ball thrown his way and his he was on the field for just three plays on offense. Charles Johnson, who was claimed just before the season started from the Cleveland Browns, had the most playing time of any receiver on Sunday. On the other side of the ball, Xavier Rhodes is becoming one of the league’s best cornerbacks.

Opponent Profile: Vikings Set To Finish Home Stand Against The New York Jets

The Minnesota Vikings complete a three-game home stand against the New York Jets on Sunday. The Vikings just completed a lopsided victory over the Carolina Panthers at TCF Bank Stadium.

The Vikings will be favored.

Injury Report: McKinnon Doubtful For The Vikings Against The Panthers

The Minnesota Vikings will not have starting running back Jerick McKinnon Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. He has been bothered by a lower back injury that needs a week off to heal. A committee of Matt Asiata (who missed last week’s game due to a concussion), Joe Banyard and Ben Tate will get the carries in McKinnon’s place. The Vikings have 11 players listed on their injury report and the Panthers have seven players listed on theirs.

Vikings OT Matt Kalil’s Frustrating Season Reached A New Height Sunday

After the game ended, he did not talk to the media and then had an incident with a fane just outside TCF Bank Stadium. Kalil apologized for dodging the media and called the incident afterward “no big deal.” The Vikings lost their other starting tackle Phil Loadholt for the rest of the season with a torn pectoral muscle.

Opponent Profile: Vikings Face Panthers In Only Home Stand

The Minnesota Vikings face the Carolina Panthers in the middle game of a three-game home stand on Sunday. The Panthers are not living up to expectations after finishing with the second best record in the NFC last season. They have struggled with injuries on offense and poor play on defense. It is highly unlikely that either team will compete for the playoffs, but a win on Sunday will be a big momentum building moment toward next season.

Injury Report: Vikings Running Backs Are Getting Banged Up

The Minnesota Vikings are thin on healthy running backs with Matt Asiata out and Jerick McKinnon banged up. McKinnon is expected to play with a lower back issue, but the team claimed Ben Tate off waivers as insurance. Sharrif Floyd’s status is the biggest question mark of any injury on the team. He banged knees with a teammate and was held out of practice because of it. The Vikings list 13 players on their injury report and the Green Bay Packers list eight on theirs.

Clock Malfunction Factors Into Vikings QB Bridgewater’s Last Minute Interception

The Minnesota Vikings are not blaming the fourth quarter clock malfunctions on their 21-13 loss to the Chicago Bears Sunday at Soldier Field. But, they are saying it factored into the play that denied them a chance to tie the game. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater threw a long pass to the end zone with plenty of time remaining in the game, but thought the clock was running out. The interception allowed the Bears to take a knee for the remainder of the game. Tight end Kyle Rudolph returned to the lineup, but he was a non-factor.
