Vikings And Giants Major Disappointments In 2013

When the NFL was looking for a Monday night game in the seventh week of the season, the Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants seemed a natural. The Vikings were coming off a surprising 10-6 record and a playoff berth in 2012.

Minnesota Vikings Safety Harrison Smith May Need Surgery

Minnesota Vikings’ Defense Is Having A Disappointing Season

The Minnesota Vikings have a very good defense on paper. However, on the field it has been a different story. The Vikings rank near the bottom in the league in most statistical defensive categories. The Vikings lost linebacker Desmond Bishop to a torn ACL during the Week 5 loss to the Carolina Panthers. Head coach Leslie Frazier would like to name his starting quarterback for Monday’s showdown with the winless New York Giants on Wednesday.

Vikes Reeling But Frazier ‘Certain’ Of Improvement

The Minnesota Vikings are a mess. They’ve allowed 31.6 points per game, third most in the league. The offense has plenty of problems, too, as evidenced by the two interceptions and four punts on nine possessions in a lopsided loss to Carolina. Still, coach Leslie Frazier says he believes the Vikings have the right players on the roster to improve, and he’s certain that will happen. The Vikings (1-4) play the winless New York Giants (0-6) this week.

Minnesota Vikings Move Closer To New Stadium

The Minnesota Vikings and the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority completed a portion of the terms that could lead to the team’s new stadium. The most important part of the two documents for fans is the Stadium Builder’s License. There has been strong opposition to the use of them, but they have become a part of professional sports.
