Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker might have committed a political version of football’s unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on a piece of material that will be part of the Minnesota Vikings new $1 billion stadium. Walker says he wrote a little message on one of the beams to be used in the new stadium in downtown Minneapolis.
The Minnesota Vikings outlasted the Washington Redskins for a 29-26 victory Sunday at TCF Bank Stadium. The Vikings had moments of success and moments of breakdown from each of the team’s units. The offense was very good in the second half. The defense got the team back in the game. The special team was generally bad.
Teddy Bridgewater outplayed Robert Griffin III down the stretch after a rough start, Matt Asiata ran for three scores and the Vikings spoiled Griffin’s return to the Redskins with a 29-26 victory on Sunday.
If you’re heading to a game this weekend, you may want to double check your tickets. Police are investigating a man who they believe sold fake tickets to a Vikings game, and they think he may have sold even more to other sporting events.

The Minnesota Vikings scored first and last to defeat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 19-13 in overtime Sunday at Raymond James Stadium. The Vikings offense was OK.

Last week in Buffalo, the Minnesota Vikings held onto a lead late in the fourth quarter before losing on the final play of the game. Thanks to a pair of rookies, history didn’t repeat itself today.
