Chad Greenway could see that analysts were going to focus on the Vikings’ two-minute defense, but he took the minority view on that topic. Plus, players react to the boos, the quarterbacks felt the heat and the other notes from Sunday’s 31-27 loss.
BEST OF MAXIM
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- When Toby Gerhart's came to the Minnesota Vikings in 2010, he arrived as a second-round pick off of a decorated college career and runner-up in the 2009 Heisman Trophy voting.
Four seasons later, Gerhart has 241 career carries as the backup to MVP running back Adrian Peterson.
Gerhart's time in Minnesota is likely to close without many more carries...
NFL running back Adrian Peterson has teamed with Driven Apps to release a new fitness and sports training app for aspiring athletes. This is the third time that Driven has paired with a professional athlete to release a branded app; earlier this year, the company produced apps with NBA star Dwayne Wade and pro golfer […]
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings were packing up for their evening trip to London on Monday but had a few last minute medical tests to get out of the way.
Cornerbacks Chris Cook and A.J. Jefferson and starting safety Jamarca Sanford were all scheduled to have magnetic resonance imaging tests Monday after being hurt and unable to finish in Sunday's loss to the Cleveland...
MINNEAPOLIS - Shortly after Sunday's 31-27 loss to the depleted Cleveland Browns, Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier looked every bit as defeated as his 0-3 team.
Frazier scratched his head lamenting a loss in which his defense came up with four turnovers. Offensive line struggles, an inability to run on one of the league's best run defense and another failure defensively...
Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder has now been intercepted five times in his first three games.Fantasy Spin:He's only thrown two touchdowns over that span. At least Ponder (25-for-42, 228 yards, one INT) had the decency to rush for 46 yards on five carries Sunday against Cleveland, though it probably wasn't enough to salvage the day for most fantasy owners.
After starting the season with two games on the road, the Minnesota Vikings will have their home opener today and for LT Matt Kalil, there is no place like home.
According to Crossing Broad, Donovan McNabb was in a speech giving mood the whole weekend after having his No. 5 Eagles jersey retired this past Thursday.
In the video from Harrah’s Casino, McNabb can be seen still celebrating his retirement ceremony, and according to the individual who sent in the video, McNabb was hammered drunk.
McNabb keeps the screaming and terrible speech...
The Vikings are off to a not so hot 0-3 start and the fans are understandably turning their anger towards QB Christian Ponder. Even though he had a couple nice athletic TD runs yesterday, fans don’t view him as the answer at QB. However, their star RB Adrian Peterson believes it’s unfair:
“I got his back. He scored two touchdowns and kept us in the game,” Peterson said...
By the time the dust settles on this Wilf legal rigmarole, the Vikings may have already moved into their new home.
That was the message from a pair of lawyers that represent principal team owner Zygi Wilf, his brother Mark Wilf and their cousin Leonard Wilf, who were ordered Monday to pay 84.5 million in damages in a 21-year-old New Jersey real estate case. The resulting appeal...
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By DAVE CAMPBELL AP Pro Football Writer The Minnesota Vikings are taking some extra baggage to London.
They don't have any wins to pack with them, though - they're just saddled with questions after their third straight loss to open the season. Now they get a home game overseas.
Minnesota is considered the host team at Wembley Stadium this Sunday against...
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Referee Bill Leavy mistakenly penalized the Minnesota Vikings after coach Leslie Frazier tried to challenge a ruling on a muffed punt in the second quarter of Sunday's game against Cleveland.
It was the second big miscue for Leavy's crew in the season's first three weeks.
When Browns punt returner Travis Benjamin muffed the punt, Vikings linebacker...
Still Perfectly Winless on the Year
You guys! We did it! We actually did it! We kept the winless streak alive, and really stuck it to Cleveland! I mean, it was a hell of a barn burner, and I honestly didn't know if we were going to pull this off, but we found a way. THE GOOD TEAM ALWAYS FIND A WAY! We overcame adversity and a team trading their star running back and starting...
The Cleveland Browns beat the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Yes, I checked again this morning to make sure it was not a typo from yesterday.
Behind the arm of Brian Hoyer the Browns pulled off a 31-27 win which ensures them of winning at-least one game this season. Minnesota was not as lucky dropping to 0-3 while seeing their playoff aspirations further disappear.
