The Vikings were supposed to be terrible this season with AP's return in question. No one told AP he wasn't supposed to be any good this season.
We've entered the second half of the season and talk of league MVP will start heating up.
Here is a look at my MVP candidates by position:
Payton Manning - Manning not only switched teams but came back...
During last week victory over the Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson scored a rushing touchdown and decided to celebrate with the fans at the Mall of America Field.
Peterson went over to a young boy with his jersey on near the end zone barrier and attempted to high five him.
Watch as Petserson missed the boy's hand and hits him in the face on...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Chris Kluwe is out supporting another cause, but this one hits a bit closer to home for the outspoken Minnesota Vikings punter.
Kluwe has written an open letter to the Pro Football Hall of Fame Selection Committee, which was posted on Deadspin.com, and admonished voters for continually ignoring former Raiders punter Ray Guy, considered by many the best-ever...

If McNabb focused more and tried a bit harder, Jeff Garcia says he could have been even better.
Garcia, who served as a backup for...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Several Detroit Lions were upset about what they felt were cheap shots in last week's game against the Vikings, and the NFL apparently agreed, fining Minnesota linebacker Jasper Brinkley and safety Mistral Raymond this week.
Brinkley was fined 21,000 and Raymond 7,875 for hits that came three plays apart during Minnesota's 34-24 win. The Lions were also...
Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph had a career-best day on Sunday. It’s no coincidence it was also a rebound game for quarterback Christian Ponder.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A top state official overseeing the new Minnesota Vikings stadium said Friday she expects personal seat licenses to be priced in line with fees charged at the Twins' Target Field and the University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium -- if the team pursues the fees to help pay its share of the 975 million construction cost.
