When the Viking rolled in KC, they knew that it was a winnable game. This game again was the tale of two halves. The Vikings lost for the second week in a row 13-10. We had 3rd string quarterback directing the offense in this game, due to T-Jack being out with a groin injury. Kelly Holcomb did a decent job under center. The problem with the offense was the line played like shit. I could not believe the amount of times that the Chief defenders were in the backfield. When Holcomb did have time he went for 14 for 28, 165 yards, 0 TDs and 0 INTs. Which is not that bad considering that averaging about 3 ints per game before this one. We need a passing game in a hurry or I do not think we will have much of a season.
Our rushing attack is a totally different story. With Adrian Peterson in the backfield, he is marvelous. So far he has two 100+ yard rushing games this season. This a great time for him to shine with our lack of a passing game and Taylor out of the lineup for the last two weeks. AP had the lone spark of offense production in the KC game.
The defense had do so much this year it is unbelievable. If they are not scoring touchdowns they are stopping the run. With one of the best run stoppers in the league the Williamses. Only allowing about 70 per game this year. We need some help with the pass coverage. That is the only fault of out D. We held Larry Johnson (one NFL's best RBs last season) to under 50 yards. The late TD pass given up to the mismatched Cedric Griffin to Dwayne Bowe was what shot us in the foot.
Next up is ": the Packers(3-0) @ Minnesota(1-2)
