Vikes win over the Raiders 29-22
The Vikes play a pretty good game today to win over the Raiders at the Metrodome on Sunday. It was a fun game to watch even with Adrian Peterson on the sideline with a knee injury. The running game was a success as it has been all season long. Chester Taylor had a career game with Peterson like numbers against the Raider defense. He ripped through the Raiders all day long. He had 164 yards on 22 carries and 3 TDs(10,38,6) also 3 catches for 38 yards. in which CT had over 200 yards of total offense. He is no AD he is the best backup in the league.The line sure did open up some great hole for him today. This is a reason why we are the best rushing offense in the league.
T-Jack had his best passing output of his young NFL career. He was 17-22 throwing for 171 yards and 1 int. Beside that lone interception, he passed the pass very well. I was pretty accurate and on the mark for the receivers . He had little room to complete the passes he did. Due to the fact that the WRs were not getting that much separation. The Vikes offense wee completing passes and moving the ball down the field and even in the red zone. This has been unheard of this year. i know it was only one game.Maybe this is a sign for better things to come for our passing game.
We found out that Sidney Rice has a pretty good arm. Yes he is the WR we pick in this years draft. He went 2/2 for 93 yards passing. One of which was the first play of the game. The play was a WR reverse and completed a 74 yard bomb to Visanthe Shiancoe. Now that was a sweet play to wake the fans at the Metrodome.
One with the defense
The Williamses dominated the line of scrimmage against the Raiders after the Viking rush defense ran threw every which way last week against the Packers.I think that they showed up that they have not lost a step.The defense played with great intensity on the Sunday capred to last week. The pass defense is still in need of HELP. We will not be going anywhere is we cannot stop a QB passing over 300 yards. Former Vike Daunte Culpepper did very well against our DBs. He went 23-39 for 344 yards 1 TD, 1 int,2 fumbles(1lost). He showed what the Vike fans miss and do not miss about him. I for one miss him as our QB. It does not matter how bad our DBs today.
THE VIKES WIN.
This is all that matters.It always make me so happy to see my Norsemen to put a W in the win column. So everyone get out your horns and make some noise.
