With the Vikes the are still recovering the mauling they took at Green Bay last, this week should go a little better. The Vikes are at home against the Oakland Raiders.This should be a really good game. Both are not playing for the playoffs, thy are really evenly matched. The Vikes will still be able to run the ball without Peterson in the backfield. Do you guys remember a guy by name of Chester Taylor? He did a pretty good job for us last year, he had over 1200 yards. He should light up the Raiders with their poor run defense.
With both of the team lack a consistent passing game and shoving through QB as much as some teams do line changes in hockey. Maybe the Vikes can actually pass the ball a little, I just hope that T-Jack can stall healthy. It has been a question all season if he can stay on the field. It seems like he has been dealing with one thing or another. The ex-Vike is starting for the Raiders' Dante Culpepper. He has done a decent job for them this year. He has not been hurt or anything like that really compared to our QB. The NFL Network is expecting that him and Russell will split time in the game.It should be a boring passing attack by either side.As long as the Vikes can complete a pass to a WR in the 1st half I will be happy.
Oakland's potent ground attack facing a good Minnesota run defense and Minnesota's struggling passing attack facing an exceptional Oakland pass defense. Field position will be key and while the point total should be low, the physical play and effort by both teams will be great.So will be a great smash mouth football game.
