By now you might have heard, Adrian Peterson the Minnesota running back his his eye set on a 2,500 yard season. The Vikings are going to need a solid performance out of their star player. Especially after what we saw them do in the preseason. Peterson will be the boost this Vikings offense needs. They could sustain much during their offensive drives without him. If Peterson even comes close to producing a 2,50 yard season he will be able to help his Vikings control the tempo of the game. That’s a good thing, they could control the tempo all preseason. They are going to need to keep their defense off the field to give them a chance to rest. If the Vikings can’t get it going with Peterson, the fans are going to be in for a very disappointing outcome this year. The team isn’t showing much without him. To go 1-3 on the preseason doesn’t mean much once the season starts, the thing the fans have to hope for is Peterson is in great form from the start with as little activity as he saw. The...

Minnesota Vikings LB Desmond Bishop was going g to let it all hang out and he did just that. In Bishop's last stand to make the team's roster, he went out and played like his old self. Starting at weakside linebacker against the Tennessee Titans, Bishop didn't act like the game was a preseason finale, and he put on display a performance worthy of a starting role.

Vikings vs. Titans (@Vikings)
Most people don’t care about the fourth and final week of preseason games in the NFL. Starters rarely see the field and the game is all about a bunch of guys who might not play for anyone this season. But these are games where you can discover gems like Colin Kaepernick and Alfred Morris before the regular season begins. For me these are my favorite...
We Made It!
We did it! Sure, I mean we won our game last night versus the Titans, our first and only preseason win, but moreso I mean we finally made it! We survived all of the crap that people made us put up with during this preseason and ridiculous training camps and Joe Webb conversations and punching your eyeballs from watching Christian Ponder and oh god, it's over....
