The 3 big names dealing with injuries heading into the NFC Championship Game could all play. The 49ers figure to have both Carlos Rogers and Will Tukuafu ready to go, while Seattle’s Percy Harvin is a big question mark and will remain so up until kickoff.

Minnesota Vikings Disappoint In 2013

The Minnesota Vikings had higher expectations than the 5-10-1 record the team finished with in the 2013 season. The Vikings pass defense was abysmal in 2013 with five game-tying or game-winning scores in the final minute of the game. The team used three starting quarterbacks, including Christian Ponder and Matt Cassel for small stretches twice. The team fired head coach Leslie Frazier very early Monday morning.

Vikings Don’t Make Enough Plays To Stay With The Seahawks

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.

Minnesota Vikings Have Few Bright Spots, Many Underachievers

The Minnesota Vikings have only one win through the first quarter of the season, but Cordarrelle Patterson, Xavier Rhodes and Marcus Sherels have played well. The Vikings need Chad Greenway, Erin Henderson, the offensive line and Christian Ponder to step up to get the team back on the right track.

Rudolph’s Blocking Just As Important As Receiving

Kyle Rudolph has some of the surest hands in the NFL, with a 6-foot-6, 260-pound frame fit for the type of tight end who can be one of his team’s best passing targets. As long as he plays for the Minnesota Vikings, though, his potential is probably not on track to become the next Tony Gonzalez. No matter how much ability Rudolph has as a receiver, run blocking must be an equally important part of his skill set. “There aren’t very many guys in our game anymore who are doing the run blocking and the pass catching,” Rudolph said.
