Vikings Defeat Falcons 24-3

Posted by LOTGK on September 9, 2007

Adrian Peterson Lives Up To His Rep

The Minnesota Vikings opened the 2007 campaign today with an impressive victory against the Joey Harrington led Atlanta Falcons. Vikings 24, Falcons 3.

Let’s get right to Adrian Peterson. 19 carries for 103 yards for a 5.4 yards per carry plus a 60 yard reception that he turned into a TD and iced the game against the Falcons. Chester Taylor started the game and had 18 yards on three carries before injuring himself early in the first quarter. Not only that, he had a heads up play recovering the fumble by Tarvaris Jackson avoiding a turnover. With M. Moore deactivated, Adrian Peterson assumed the role as starter and carried the load. I understand that it is only week one, but Peterson is the real deal with a special blend of power, speed, strength, vision, and brains.

Staying with the rookies, Sidney Rice hauled in two catches for ten yards. One for a first down, and one he ran his route short of the marker. A rookie mistake who needs to be aware every play where the first down is.

Still staying with the rookies, Brian Robison had two sacks in his NFL debut. With the Vikings lacking in sacking last season, Robison’s play was a bright spot for the defense.

And still staying with the rookies, M. McCauley saw action today and had three tackles and played very well. He’s going to push for the starting position all season.

Defensive end Udeze played 16 games last season and had goose egg for sacks. The final play of the game today, Udeze cracked the egg and sacked Harrington to end the game. Collectively, the Vikings recorded 6 sacks against the Falcons today. This bodes well for the entire defense for last year, the pass defense was ranked “Terrible” as every quarterback they faced looked like Joe Montana.

Staying with the defense. Two defensive scores today. Both on interceptions. One from K. Williams as he rumbled 50 yards after picking off Harrington and one from Winfield who picked one and took it 14 yards to the house.

I have to tell you, I was very worried about our “Not so” special teams. All last year and all preseason, this group looked terrible. From giving up long returns, botched punts, missed FG’s, fumbles, missed tackles, and giving up valuable field position, today, that unit redeemed itself. Longwell connects on a 49 yarder but more importantly, his kicks were at the one or end zone today. Kluwe pinned the Falcons deep every punt. Excellent play by the special teams today and the results, yes, Vikings win.

Last year, the Vikings were the most penalized team averaging 7.7 penalties per game. Many of those penalties were drive killers on offense or allowed opposing offenses to stay on the field. Today, we had 4 penalties for 35 yards. A very good start. Next week at Detroit will be the tale of the tape as the crowd noise affects the offensive line.

A shout out to Nike vision labs. Troy Williamson caught 2 passed for 19 yards and did not have any drops. A very positive sign indeed.

Tarvaris Jackson gets his first win as a starting quarterback. He managed the game playing within the frame work given. He was 13 for 23 for 163 yards with one touchdown and one interception. As the season progresses, he will get better and more comfortable.

Offensively, the Vikings need to get on track. They only scored 10 points. Even with Bevel calling the plays, the offense is very conservative. Only one pass went down town and the pass was overthrown to Williamson. I know that the offense is a work in progress but if it becomes predictable as last year, look for another losing season.

I saw Brad Childress smile today. That’s a good thing. A puzzling moment was when he threw the red challenge flag at the end of the game. It was also a hoot to see him run on the field at the end of the game to congratulate Udeze on his first sack in two years.

Final Thoughts:
Vikings collect an impressive win today along with the Packers and Lions. The Bears take one on the chin as Rex continues his sub par performance. I know it’s only week two, but an away game against Detroit is a critical game. Why is it critical? Because the Vikings need to beat the teams they are supposed to, and Detroit is one of those teams. If they want to entertain any hopes of being invited to the playoff dance, they must beat detroit next week.
