Let’s take a look at who the five worst teams will be heading into the 2014 NFL season.
Even though he will be 38 in October and well past his prime, safety Charles Woodson has the ability to lead the Oakland Raiders defense this season to a level the team hasn’t seen in awhile.
Everyone’s taking up the ice bucket challenge. But some people in the sports world need ice water dumped on them.
The Minnesota Vikings will take on the Oakland Raiders in the first game of the 2014 season Friday night. The preseason matchup will be played at TCF Bank stadium on the University of Minnesota campus. The game marks the start of a two year stay at “The Bank” while the Vikings new stadium is built downtown.
In addition to working on memorizing new plays, making improvements and focusing on their skill sets – these guys are also taking in nature. From the mountains to the sea, these teams weren’t just getting their workout on, they’re training in some of the most scenic places in the U.S.
With NFL training camp underway, let’s look at the biggest storylines to watch for in camp the next month.
Every NFL team has a chance… theoretically. But these 5 teams might as well pack it in until 2015.
Here is a list of the dirtiest players of football history.
The Minnesota Vikings return to playing home games outdoors when they open the preseason Aug. 8 against the Oakland Raiders. The Vikings on Tuesday announced the dates and times for their 2014 preseason schedule. Minnesota opens the preseason with a 7 p.m. Friday game against Oakland at the University of Minnesota’s outdoor stadium.
With the NFL Draft less than a month away, the Minnesota Vikings announced their 2014 preseason schedule on Tuesday. It will be the Vikings first of two seasons playing at TCF Bank Stadium at the University of Minnesota while their new stadium is under construction.
The Minnesota Vikings may be on the verge of shutting down star running back Adrian Peterson. The ankle injury suffered in Sunday’s loss is not deemed too serious, but with the team mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, his health is more important. Toby Gerhart would be given the opportunity to showcase his talent over the final three games as long as Peterson is out.
The Minnesota Vikings play their second to last game ever at Mall of America Field against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles have won five straight and have risen to the top of the NFC East Division. Running back LeSean McCoy and linebacker DeMeco Ryans led the Eagles offensive and defensive units.
The endless genius of the NFL can’t be completely quantified. But part of pro football’s popularity is burning its image in our culture and our consciousness. While baseball and basketball have their July 4 and Christmas brands, they are afterthoughts, or leftovers, compared to the NFL’s hallmark roll call.
The Minnesota Vikings play in the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium in Week 9. The Cowboys lead the NFC East with 4-4 record. They are led by a prolific passing offense and opportunistic defense. The Vikings maligned secondary will have their hands full with the Cowboys.
Fans of the Oakland Raiders know the phrase “quarterback competition” almost more than any other in the English language. That is no different for the 2013 season, but Matt Flynn hopes that the competition ends his well-traveled career and ends with him.
