Vikings lose 4th straight

Cardinals fly into US Bank Stadium to take on Vikes

The Minnesota Vikings (5-4, 2nd NFC North) have very little time to turn things around and stay above .500.  While there is still time to take over the weak NFC North, there is no more time for a struggling offense that was locked out of the end zone in the second half last week against the Redskins.

vikings-3The Cardinals (4-4, 2nd NFC West) are coming off  a 23-20 win over the San Francisco 49ers. While not the most potent team in the league but the contest between Sam Bradford and Carson Palmer should be most interesting.


The Vikings will have to again use a patchwork offensive line but in the end they cannot use that as an excuse for not executing.

“It’s one of those things where we can’t make excuses,” guard Alex Boone said. “We can’t sit there and say, ‘Well, this guy’s new to me, this guy’s new to me, I don’t know how he’s going to play.’ That just doesn’t jibe in this league anymore. It’s going to be on us as an offensive line to pick things up quick this week.”

Vikings host Rams tonight

Young QB’s expected to get long looks

The Minnesota Vikings had it all working in their favor.  A bulked up team, a new sold out stadium and optimism to spare.  Then Teddy went down.  Enter Shaun Hill.

While Hill will probably not play tonight against the LA Rams, you will see a lot from  Joel Stave and Brad Sorensen, one of which could be under scrutiny from other teams looking for a backup.

In a move that really surprised no one, the franchise released veteran center John Sullivan after Joe Berger beat him out for the starting center job.

“Our entire organization appreciates everything that John Sullivan has done for this franchise,” GM Rick Spielman said. “Sullivan led our team, not only with how he played the game, but also with how he handled himself in our community. We wish John Sullivan and his family nothing but the best as they move forward.”

Ticket for tonight’s final preseason game as well as all regular season games are still available so be sure to grab yours and help cheer on your Minnesota Vikings!
