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 have lost a key cog in their defense.
The Vikings have a few solid defenders. The most notable is Jared Allen who will be fully healthy come Sunday.

Yet another awesome Monday Night Football game for all you diehards who just can’t get enough pigskin. Nothing like watching the Packers wiping their asses with the Vikings defense. 45-7. 10 Packers caught passes in the blowout. Rodgers now has 28 TDs and 3 INTs.

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...

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...

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.
With the Raiders playing division rivals that past month, TFOS has been on a break. But with the Raiders traveling to the re-inflated metrodome to face the deflated Vikings, it is time for another installment. This week I caught up with the Vikings blogger over at Purple Jesus Diaries (not to be confused with the Orange Jesus the Raiders faced two weeks ago) to get his blessing on...
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...
