With the Vikes coming off two big victories over the 49ers and Packers. Both games is where Favre came to life abd throw over 250 yards each game. Before that Chilly did pass all that much especially the deep ball.
With Vikes travels to St.Louis to take on the Rams on Sunday. Both team are on the opposite sides of the spectrum. The Vikes currently sit at 4-0 and the Rams are struggling with an 0-4 record. I would not be the first to think of this, but I could see the Vikes screwing up this game. With their history, sure they can beat the good teams and the next week lose to a poor football.
What to expect in the game:
Adrian to forget the past two week. Peterson was shutdown for him the past two games. He has one TD(1 yard score against the Pack) and 140 yards. I would expect to see Adrian to get back into his old form against the games rush defense this week. The Rams have given up 135 yards per contest so far in this young season. So why no AD add torture on the ground.
Pass Defense. It just seems that the Vikes defense are not all gelled together yet and we are entering Week 5. The Vikes pass defense is Achilles heel right now. The Rams are not potent passing team that they were a couple of years ago. It would be a start especially after what Aaron Rogers did to the pass coverage of the Vikings in the last quarter and a half of Mondays game.
Steven Jackson. This Rams offense right here. The Vikes rush defense will need to stop him early so that he does not get his motor running. Jackson is the ype of back that thrives on smash mouth football. So if the front 7 can take care of business, then the Rams will be in for a long game on Sunday.
