With the Viking loss to the Bucs last week now the division is in a three way tie. To keep pace with the Bears and Packers Quest to 9 games. The team that wins nine games, in my opinion will win the division and will be the only representative from the NFC North in the postseason this year.
The Vikes will be going to Jacksonville this Sunday and try to slow down their road woes. The Vikes are 1-4 on the Road and that lone win come against the dismal and league worst Detroit Lions. Here are some quick stats from both squads.
Total Yards-314.2(23rd NFL Rank)
Total Yards- 328.2(18)
Rushing- 113.2 (20)
Total Yards-330.9(15th NFL Rank)
Rushing- 139.5 (4)
Total Yards- 296.7(10)
The Vikes are facing a team much like themselves in this game. Both teams have similar stats in the same areas. I do not think that the Vikes will need to rely on the shoulders of our QB the win this one. The Jags run stopping defense in 20th, so with Adrian Peterson in the backfield. The Vikes can win by handing the rock off to him 30 times or so.
A problem might occur with the Vikings 3 or the 4 front wall on defense will be in a meetings. The Williams’ for the Diuretic and Jared Allen for some of the questionable hits on QBs on the past few games. It will be interesting to see how this turns out.
