Default The Vikes Have Been VERY Lucky.....

A missed FG well within the Raven's kickers range and a Hail Mary pass against San Fran.... Congrats on their 6-0 record. Their a good team. But they have BARELY beaten the other good teams that they've played.... If you can say the Ravens and 49ers are good teams.....
Their luck will run out next week in the Steel City....

You're right, they have gotten lucky in a lot of these games. That said, they're still winning them. We've lost to 2 good teams, when we outplayed them. And with the trouble we've had putting teams away this year, I'm nervous about this game.

Hopefully you're right, and their luck does run out.

I dont think you can call it luck. Look at all the skill players in Peterson, Favre, Berrian. They probably have the best O-line in the NFL, while their D-line with the 2 Williams and Jared Allen is one of the tops too.

Yeah, with all that talent, they should be even more dominant, but I think Childress manages to keep them from being even better. Should be a tough game next week.

They're a good team, but very beatable. We have them at home, which is a huge boost to us.

They've earned their 6-0 record. We got our work cut out next week, but I'm confident we can head into the bye week at 5-2.

Vikes are pretty beat up after this game.

Vikings CB Antoine Winfield leaves with injury

MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield left Sunday's game with an injury to his right foot.

The Vikings had two more costly injuries in the fourth quarter. Running back Adrian Peterson appeared to hurt his left knee while being tackled during a run. He limped off the field and sat out a few plays during Minnesota's next series, but was back in for the following possession.

Wide receiver Percy Harvin then aggravated an injury to his left shoulder that had him listed as questionable for the game. Harvin got hurt while being tackled on a kickoff return and was later taken away on a cart.
Winfield was hurt on Baltimore's first series of the second quarter and left the bench area to be examined. Karl Paymah took Winfield's place on the next possession and gave up a 28-yard reception to the Ravens' Derrick Mason.

Later in the second quarter, Winfield walked gingerly back to the sideline without his helmet. At the beginning of the third quarter, the team announced Winfield's return as questionable. He was wearing a hat on the sideline.

Paymah, Benny Sapp and Cedric Griffin were the cornerbacks in the nickel package during Baltimore's first series of the second half. Sapp sat out during the second quarter.

Winfield made the Pro Bowl last season for the first time in his 10-year career. He had one interception, six passes defended and 30 tackles in Minnesota's first five games.

weve barely beaten the shitty teams we've played and we have been worse than unlucky. in addition to our injuries to main defensive cogs, we have played sloppy.

i dont think the vikings will be hoping for luck to beat the steelers.

we struggled against the winless titans and 1-5 browns and lions played us much tougher than they should have. beating the 2 win chargers is nothing to write home about.

barely losing to "juggernauts" such as the bears or bungles is disturbing.

finally with the vikings we play an opponent who is a sb contender. this will be a good test.

it may take us being very lucky to win.

Hopefully the Rats have softened the Vikes for them so that way the Steelers may end 5-2 before the bye
