Minnesota Vikings vs New Orleans Saints and Some History

Saints vs Vikings

After a tumultuous week of football (mostly non football related news), I'm ready to get back to meat and potatoes of the sport we all love so much. The Minnesota Vikings visit the New Orleans Saints in Week 3 and both teams come in with their own struggles.

The Vikings will look to win their second road game of the 2014 season after finishing 0-7-1 during the 2013 season. The Saints, surprisingly, will be in search of their first victory of the season.

Here's a look at the history between the Vikings and the Saints:

Adrian Peterson Indicted on Child Abuse Charges in Houston

This (potentially) isn't good news. The Minnesota Vikings' Adrian Peterson has been indicted on child abuse charges in Houston, Texas. According to TMZ, Fox 26 in Houston and Jay Glazer, this appears to be an official report. You can see the Fox 26 report here. Peterson now has to turn himself in, thus putting his status in jeopardy for Sunday's game. At this point, the details are pretty week (but, naturally, the rumors are red hot)...so we need to let this play out.

What will be interesting to see, in regards to recent news with Ray Rice and co., is how the NFL will react. Stay tuned for a piece from me on the NFL and what happens with domestic (and now child) abuse/violence moving forward.

More on the Peterson situation as it's released.

UPDATED: Peterson allegedly struck his 4 year old son (not 11 year old, as initially rumored) with a switch. To what extent, we don't know, but the investigation has been in the works for a while and Peterson has been aware. Stay tuned.

UPDATED 5:18pm CST: Pictures of the alleged injuries have been obtained and released, supposedly from the Houston Police Department. Via CBS Minneapolis



Week Two Preview: Beautiful Quarterbacks Club Coming to TCF Bank Stadium


Week one of the 2014 NFL season is now behind us, so its time to spend the next few days talking about how awesome some teams are, and how awful other teams are…based on a single game. Look no further than the Minnesota Vikings, who on Sunday, and will be hosting the New England Patriots on the University of Minnesota campus. What can we expect? What should we look for? Are the Vikings really that good? Or are the St. Louis Rams bad? Are the Patriots good? Or did they just have a bad first week against the Miami Dolphins?


2014 NFL Predictions: Minnesota Vikings and NFC North

I wasn't going to post much about my predictions this year, but I found myself having a hard time not thinking about how the Minnesota Vikings, and the rest of the NFC North, will pan out. For the record, I predicted a SIX win, at best, season for the Vikings in 2013. I make my predictions with my gut, not my heart (or my head, no one wants to see that). So, without further delay, here are my 2014 Vikings and NFC North predictions.
