    Winter Park, the practice facility in Eden Prairie for the Minnesota Vikings, is buzzing with activity early this week after the team’s loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday.

    Tale Of The Tape: Houston Texans At New York Giants

    The Texans are on a roll after winning their first two games of the season, but one note of caution. They also won their first two games last year before finishing the season with a 2-14 record.
