Despite a bad record, the Vikings still have two players getting the love of football fans. Adrian Peterson and Jared Allen lead their positions in Pro Bowl voting.

Jared Allen is Rambo in this month’s Maxim

I can't say it's among my favorite pictures in Maxim, but Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen does look like a bad, bad man in that Rambo get-up (except for the purple headband, maybe). In this month's issue dedicated to the military, Maxim dubs Jared Allen "The Rambo of the NFL." There's also a look at his "Rambo" workout, and an interview...

Allen takes a turn with special teams

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Jared Allen has done it all for the Minnesota Vikings' defense this season. Now he's helping out the special team's units too. Vikings' fans don't have to worry about the standout defensive end being exposed to injury on special teams. Allen's only been helping out in practice while long snapper Cullen Loeffler is out with a rotator...

Peterson running toward the Vikings record

Adrian Peterson is within striking distance of the all-time Vikings rushing record. He and a few of his teammates talked about the feat and his talents.

Oakalnd Raiders Visit the Vikings in Crucial Game

The Oakland Raiders will go on the road to take on the Minnesota Vikings in what looks like an easy win on paper. The problem with paper is it can easily be ripped up.

The Raiders are ranked 25th against...

Raiders defense strengthens while Vikings' weakens

It is no secret that the Raiders defense has been hobbled by injuries of late. The injuries have taken their toll on the performance of the defense as a whole and helped lead to a devastating loss to the Broncos two weeks ago. But the Raiders righted the ship in last week's win over the Chargers and look to continue that momentum. All the while, their next opponent, the Vikings...

Pick Of The Week: Oakland Raiders (-1.5) at Minnesota Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings are coming off of a resounding defeat in front of a national audience at Lambeau. They had little in the way of a response to the surgical offense that Aaron Rodgers led up and down the field. They are now faced with a short week, and have a much different challenge on hand. The Raiders come in with the fourth ranked rushing attack in the league, one with power...

Olof v. Nils: Will the Vikings get to 5 wins?

Will the Vikings get to 5 wins? Niles the Negative:Five wins? You must be out of your dang mind. Didn’t you watch them Monday night? This team will be lucky to win one more game this season, let alone three. I looked at their schedule and I’ll be darned if I can find even two more games that they have a shot in. They sure as heck ain’t gonna beat the Bears or Lions. Ditto...
