Allen struggling in Chicago while replacement Griffen thriving

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- With nicknames like Cowboy, B-Rob and Ev, the mutual admiration between Jared Allen, Brian Robison and Everson Griffen is easily apparent.

5 things we learned: Vikings at Buccaneers

A finish? Well, the Minnesota Vikings had one on Sunday, even as inexplicable as it was. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had done little on offense against Minnesota all day before charging 62 yards for a go-ahead touchdown with 2 minutes, 2 seconds left. The similarities to last week's last-second loss to Buffalo were everywhere. This week, the Vikings had one more shot on offense...

No game in the NFL is a cake walk, and weird things can happen to the best teams. Look at the Patriots against the Dolphins. The Patriots somehow ended up losing big after holding a double digit lead. And the Bears versus the Bills! Even the Bears lost...
