Two NFC East teams going in different directions will face off on Saturday, but there is still a lot to prove. The Philadelphia Eagles need to make sure they earn a spot in the playoffs. The Washington Redskins have a quarterback controversy that is getting more confusing each week. Steve Beuerlein of CBS Sports spoke on the game and troubles facing both teams.
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.
The Minnesota Vikings face the red hot Green Bay Packers fresh off an embarrassing loss to the Chicago Bears. The Packers enter the matchup after posting back-to-back 50+ point games. They are one of the hottest teams in the NFL. The Packers will be heavy favorites to win the game.
From players to referees to fans, everyone is getting in on the Week 9 action…but maybe not in the way they imagined. Here’s 5 people who were in the right (or wrong) place at the right time…
The Minnesota Vikings face the Washington Redskins Sunday at TCF Bank Stadium in Week 9 of the NFL season. The Vikings are coming off an overtime victory while the Redskins won on Monday over the Dallas Cowboys. The Redskins offense has struggled and the defense has allowed very little yards, but a lot of points.
The Minnesota Vikings return home to the face the Atlanta Falcons in Week 4. The Vikings enter the game with a 1-2 record, 0-1 at home. The Falcons enter 2-1, 0-1 on the road. The Falcons have an explosive offense led by the pass-catch duo of Matt Ryan and Julio Jones. Defensively, they are average with no one player truly standing out.

Jeremy Maclin is not going to have to be Jerry Rice or Terrell Owens. He merely needs to be a receiver for Nick Foles, while the tight ends help chip in the rest of the production in the passing game.
The Carolina Panthers cut the face of the franchise, Steve Smith, and let the only other three wide receivers on the roster that caught a pass last season leave as free agents. Tight end Greg Olsen is the only proven receiver returning from last season’s squad. Olsen should be Cam Newton’s favorite target this season.

There are a good amount of teams this season that will be looking to their quarterbacks to bring everything together to be on the winning path. Here is my list of quarterbacks that need a big 2014 season….
In our first list, we took a look at the pump up songs used by athletes Jason Hammel, Zach Johnson, T.Y. Hilton, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Swin Cash. In this installment, we’ll deepen our search […]
The New Orleans Saints are ready to head to Philadelphia, face the Eagles, battle the cold, and forget about their road woes. They are looking healthier than they have this entire season and have an injury list that is extremely short, but there is one big name that sits on it.
Every game this weekend has fascinating plots, from Cincinnati trying to break their playoff futility to the Frozen Tundra earning its sobriquet with a 30-below wind chill expected Sunday.
The Carolina Panthers have a first-round bye in the upcoming playoffs and they have an extra week to prepare for whatever team may end up facing them in Bank of America Stadium. Cam Newton recently said that they don’t care who their opponent is, but the key to winning is forgetting about egos and focusing on their opponent.
The New Orleans Saints have a revamped defense and an offense that appears to have even more weapons than that of their Super Bowl winning team. For some reason though, the Saints just can’t get things going on the road, but they will have to change that for a wild card visit to Philadelphia.
The Minnesota Vikings are likely to have their top two running backs back for Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Vikings listed four players as non-participants, four players as limited participants and four players as full participants in Thursday’s practice.
Harrison Smith missed eight games, but looked good in his return against the Philadelphia Eagles. The expectation was for him to be eased back into game shape. However, he played more snaps that any other Vikings safety. Chris Cook missed Sunday’s game against the Eagles with a knee injury.
The Philadelphia Eagles had a lot to feel good about this week — and even more to play for. In the end, the Minnesota Vikings looked more like the team that was soaring toward the playoffs.
The Minnesota Vikings routed the NFC East Division leading Philadelphia Eagles on the arm of Matt Cassel and legs of Matt Asiata. The two combined for 433 yards and six touchdowns as the Vikings won 48-30. Each unit had good games for the Vikings.
Last week in Baltimore, the Minnesota Vikings were eliminated from playoff contention when the Ravens defeated them 29-26. The loss made official what most people had already suspected, that the Vikings would not be making a return trip to the post-season.
Matt Cassel passed for 382 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score to lead the injury-depleted Vikings to a 48-30 victory over Philadelphia on Sunday, snapping the Eagles’ five-game winning streak.
Adrian Peterson is again proving his amazing recuperative powers. Peterson returned to practice Friday for the Minnesota Vikings with a sprained right foot, but his status for Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles is questionable.
Minnesota Vikings safety Harrison Smith is eligible to be taken off the injured reserve list before Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles at Mall of America Field. He has missed _ games since suffering a turf toe injury against the Carolina Panthers. The Vikings are still waiting to find out their running back situation with Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart expected to only practice on Friday this week.
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.
