Injuries decimate Vikings as they fall apart late

Victor Cruz and Chad Greenway missed this game, and Greg Childs stepped up admirably for Cruz, catching 8 balls for 95 yards and a score in his first start. As the game went on, the injuries set in and began to take a toll on the Vikings, they lost Jasper Brinkley, Greg Childs, and Percy Harvin, forcing Ponder to throw to receivers from the bottom of the depth chart.

The Vikings have to come over many adversities, and they are off to a disappointing 1-3 start. Next week they face the Lions again, who are still undefeated.

Game Notes
The Minnesota Vikings are starting Greg Childs ahead of Jerome Simpson due to Victor Cruz's injury. The 1-2 Vikings have been disappointing so far, losing to two NFC North opponents. They travel to Tampa Bay to face the Bucs, a team that is on the rise, with the #4 ranked defense in the league. But they have yet to face a player like Adrian Peterson.

Vikings defense fails them against the Lions

A 21 point first quarter for the Lions proved to be too much for the Vikings to overcome, not to mention injuries. They lost Victor Cruz and Chad Greenway to injuries mid game. Although Greg Childs performed well in Cruz's departure, the offense wasn't the same. The team couldn't overcome the deficit, then a pick six in the 3rd quarter ended any comeback hopes for the Vikings.

Game Notes
The 1-1 Vikings travel to Ford Field to take on the Detroit Lions, after suffocating the explosive Saints offense with some great defense last week. It will be tough to do this against the Lions offense, as Stafford and Calvin Johnson have torched opponents this year. But the Lions defense leaves nothing to be desired, allowing 28 points per game in 2 games, and allowing over 300 rushing yards in 2 contests.

Vikings keep Brees out of the endzone in primetime rout

The Vikings got the bounce back win they needed against the Saints, but surprised many with how they did it. Christian Ponder had a great performance, throwing for almost 300 yards and 3 touchdowns, and once again 0 interceptions. He is having a great year so far.

Peterson still hasn't scored a touchdown, but he racked up another 100 yards. Victor Cruz so far has been outstanding, scoring 2 more touchdowns and going well over 100 yards.

The Vikings rise to 1-1, and head to Detroit next week to take on the 2-0 Lions.

In a primetime matchup on Sunday Night Football, the high powered New Orleans Saints take on the balanced and young Minnesota Vikings, who both, surprisingly, started off 0-1 this year. The Vikings look to get back on track on offense against a weak Saints defense, that allowed 49 points in Week 1.

Onside kick recovery leads to Packers victory over Vikings

The Vikings offense was certainly rusty today, going to the end zone 6 times, and 5 times getting field goals. If the Vikings had capitalized on at least 2-3 of those opportunities for touchdowns, this would have been a blowout victory. But the Vikings did not, and an Adrian Peterson fumble led to an Aaron Rodgers touchdown pass, then the Packers recovered the onside kick.

The true play of the day though, was Aaron Rodgers throwing downfield to a wide open James Jones for 35 yards, Harrison Smith the 1 year safety blew coverage and tackled Jones at the 5. This led to the decisive field goal, and a 0-1 start for the Minnesota Vikings.

On a positive note, Victor Cruz, Percy Harvin, and Brian Robison showed no signs of rust, as Robison eager to go after the sack record, got to Rodgers 4 times today.

Prior to matchup versus Vikings, Packers place Clay Matthews on Injured Reserve

Due to a pectoral tear in the preseason, Clay Matthews told coach Mike McCarthy he could play this year, but the cornerstone linebacker for the Packers is too valuable to the team, and General Manager Ted Thompson takes no chances. He placed his star on Injured Reserve the night before the divisional matchup with the NFC North Champ Minnesota Vikings

The rival Green Bay Packers open the 2013 NFL Season by hosting the NFC North Division Champ Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings came two games shy of a Super Bowl last year after not expecting to do much, while the Packers were just the opposite, expecting to make a Super Bowl run, but they fell all the way to 7-9 on the year after inconsistent play from the defense. We'll see which offense starts off hotter in Week 1 at Lambeau Field.

Vikings Offseason

The Vikings look to return to the playoffs this year, and they feel set at offense. The only weakness at the offensive line is Right Guard, which will more than likely be addressed in the draft.

The Vikings will be looking to find Antoine WInfield's successor soon, and they will more than likely look to draft corners.
