Vikings Slice Through Browns Defense

The Minnesota Vikings beat the Cleveland Browns 24-12 pushing our record to 6-5. Brad Johnson passed to Marcus Robinson for a total of three touchdowns and threw for 207 yards total in the game. Our defense was effective against the run forcing two fumbles off Trent Dilfer who later left the game with a hurt right knee. Viking Darren Sharper intercepted a ball meant for Charlie Frye and Vikings QB Johnson threw for only one interception in a game with very few mistakes all around. The Vikings have really turned this season around with better defense and fewer errors than we started with.

Favre Versus Johnson in the Cold

In a battle between Bret Favre and Brad Johnson you never know what you are going to get. The Minnesota Vikings pulled out a victory over the Packers 20-17. It was not our best performance all season but we still got the win. Mewelde Moore was the star of the game with 122 yards rushing. Everyone expected this game to go to Green Bay because Favre is so good at Lambeau Field when it’s extremely cold. We held on to the ball in the second quarter and made a lot of solid plays. Mike Tice and his coaching staff were pretty happy with the game despite some key injuries. Fans felt like the Vikings running game was worthy of a playoff contending team and I have to agree. This was a good win against a strong yet floundering rival.

Thanks for all the Turnovers

Eli Manning had one of the worst games of his career and the whole Giants team was having trouble holding on to the football. If it hadn’t been for the Giants total lack of offensive strength and intensity the Vikings could have been in trouble. The Minnesota Vikings only had 12 rushing yards and a total of 156 yards of offense. They took advantage of every turn over and looked really good doing it, but no fan can ignore that the New York Giants were off their game big-time and a win like that fosters no faith in your team’s ability to go all the way. No the Vikings and Shaun Hill are going to have to put up a better offensive effort against the Green Bay Packers to earn a real win.
