Here we have it a Viking victory without a defensive touchdown. The offense today played best they have thus far all season. With the 34-31 victory is a boost for the whole team.
The offense played good today. They have not been as frustrating as they have been all season. Chilly FINALLY realized that maybe I should give Adrian Peterson the rock a bit more. AP just exploded for over 224 yards on the ground on 20 carries with 3 TDs(67,73,and 35). As expected we had Tarvaris Jackson back in action. He was not impressive, but he had zero INTs. That is a plus, considering how he played his previous starts. He went 9/23 136 yard and 1 TD. His lone TD pass was to Troy Williamson for 60 yards. Our O-line did a great job opening up hole for our running backs.
The defense pass coverage was horrible again. They almost gave the Bears the game. The Vikes seconday gave up 381 yards for 3 TDs. We need help in the secondary.A switch may be taking place. . But the Vikes gave up two long touchdown passes, allowing Chicago to tie the game. Then Peterson had a 53 yard kickoff return, allowing the Vikings to attempt the long field goal that Ryan Longwell made.
This was a big game for us to get a win in.
We have a murderous schedule. So hopefully the Vikes can take this momentum to to these upcoming games. In order for the Vikes to even think of the playoffs. They have to win 2 of the nexy 3 games. If not they can most likely kiss the playoffs goodbye.
