Vikes takedown Lions
The Vikes torched the Lions 42-10(most point in the Brad Childress era) at the Metrodome The Vikes were clicking on cylinders today. The Vikes first 5 possessions resulted in a touchdown. The Vikes were unbelievable the way that they played today.
AD is back
With Adrian Peterson back from his knee injury the 1st time. He did not skip a beat after he got warmed up. AD was going left, right and right through the Lion top 10 rush defense. He has only 15 carries 166 yards and 2 Tds(16,13).He has shown everyone that is one of the leagues most dynamic running backs.
He lost the starting job early this season, this does not stop him. He and AD are a great tandem of backs that Chilly possess. Taylor had 14 carries 70 yards 1TD(one the 1st drive).With both players getting around 15 carries each, this keeps him and AD fresh, together they give defenses a hell of a time to defense this running game. With him and AD this is the reason the Vikes have the best running game in the league.
With him healthy and confident the Vikings are getting a passing game. In the past 3 games he has had over 70% completion percentage.The more he plays the more he is improving before our eyes. With his stats today, he was 18-24 204 yards 2 tds 1 int. You can see that he is sustaining drives and making better decisions with the ball. He is bringing a more balanced attack for the defense to think about.He is showing us that maybe people were to quick to judge him and he could be the QB of the future.
Double A had a great game today. He had shown us that he can run after the catch for a nice 35 yard gain from a short pass.Everyone else saw his sweet 103 yard return for the TD. After first, I was wondering what the hell is is doing just down it. After he came of the endzone, there was a nice running lane from him to go down the sideline. He went virtually untouched, Jason Hanson the kicker was the only Lion that had a chance of stopping the return for the TD. After this the momentum never went away from the Vikes.
The defense shows another dominating performance again in the past couple of weeks. The rush defense is still there with their strong line that OLs seem not to be able to move at all for most of the season. Something has been quite different about this defense as of late. Early in the season teams were able to pass on then with ease. Now the Offensive coordinators have had a difficulty pass as of late. The Vikes have a pretty good pair of young cornerbacks in Griffin and McCauley.These guys have been picking up the slack with Winfield battling a bad hamstring.
The Vikes have 4 games left all are pretty winnable.The Vikes are rolling on all cylinders at this point in time. SKOL VIKINGS!!!!!!!!
