What if I told you that the 2013 Minnesota Vikings miraculously winning a football game on Sunday wasn't even the biggest news about the team that day? Your jaw would drop on the floor, right? Because how could a win from a team this bad NOT be the headliner of the day?
Well, lost amongst the 48 point bukkake from the Vikings on Sunday was a little news nugget concerning...
If there were any thoughts of Adrian Peterson being traded from Minnesota, they can’t be put to rest.

Apologies for not bringing this to the forefront earlier, but I wasn't able to get fully caught up on my Vikings links until I got to work today, waaaaaaa waaaaaaaa.
Maybe most of you have already seen this, but ESPN Vikings blogger (and former Vikes beat writer for the Pioneer Press) Ben Goessling has told us...well, Goessling is re-reporting an NFL Network report...that Vikings...
Vikings players were informed Saturday night that running back Adrian Peterson wouldn't play against the Eagles Sunday, according to Sean Jensen of K-TWIN. That means there will be no matchup of the league's best running backs when the Vikings meet the Eagles and LeSean McCoy.

Vikings running back Matt Asiata came into Sunday's game with three carries all season, but with Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart out he touched the ball 33 times and came away with three touchdowns.Fantasy Spin:Asiata only had 51 yards despite getting 30 carries against the Eagles, but as we know all it takes is a touchdown or two to bring home a big fantasy score.
Seldom used running back Matt Asiata will make the start in Week 15 for the Minnesota Vikings.Fantasy Spin:Both Adrian Peterson and Tobt Gerhart are inactive. Despite the obvious heavy workload he'll get, we're not sure that you want to start Asiata against an improving Eagles defense.
Matt Cassel will start for Minnesota Sunday against Cincinnati next weekend, according to a report from Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer PressFantasy Spin:That shouldn't come as a shock to anyone after he engineered an upset of Philadelphia, throwing for 382 yards and two scores and running for a third.

So often NFL analysts will talk about trap games, and so often coaches and players will dismiss a game being one because they take every team serious and play one game at a time. T
he players toe the company line and the coaches may honestly believe there is no such thing.
If any game this season would fall under this “trap game” category it would have been the Philadelphia...

Vikings players got the news last night--- Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart will not play. But losing their two best running backs for this one only makes the Vikings offense that much more of a mystery to solve for the Eagles today.

Minnesota Vikings (4-9-1) at Cincinnati Bengals (9-5)
The Bengals lost last week pretty convincingly in Pittsburgh in a surprise loss that really shouldn’t have been much of a surprise to anyone. The Bengals just aren’t the same team on the road. They’ve already lost pretty convincingly on the road to Cleveland and Baltimore (the Bengals needed an improbable Hail Mary to even...
