The way that the Viking defense played last has been something the team has missed most of the season. The defense did a good job make the Eagles beat you will the long drive and not the BIG plays in this game. The Vikes kept constant pressure on Vick and blitzed quite a bit. The secondary was good in this game with 2 interceptions, but it could have been 2 more if the DBs could have hung on to the ball. The DBs stuck with the receivers and did not allow any big plays(30+ yards). Antoine Winfield changed the completion of the game late in the 2nd quarter with a Winfield Special(sack, forced fumble, fumble recovery, touchdown).
With Brett Favre sporting his street clothes last night gave Joe Webb his 1st NFL start. Joe Webb did a good job moving the offense effectively down the field. Webb showed the fans that he has the potential to be the QB of the Future. Webb against the Eagles defense had great poise, intelligence, mobility, and accuracy.The most important stat in the game no INTs by the rookie. This was a great decision by the Viking coach with sticking with Webb as the start and no starting Ramsey and whoever else.
Adrian Peterson also had a good day on the ground rushing over 100 yards in the game. In this game, AD did not have to carry the weight of the offense on his shoulders. This was a balanced offensive attack by the Vikes.
This was a big win for Leslie Frazier to have the interim tag removed from his current title. Ziggy should just hire him on right now, because he seems like the right man for the job. He fits this team perfectly.
