Game 12: Vikings Defeat Lions 42-10

Posted by LOTGK on December 2, 2007

Kitna: And we passed on Adrian Peterson in the draft why?

Today we take a moment to send our condolences out to the Family of Sean Taylor and the entire Redskins organization. R.I.P. Sean Taylor

Vikings whip Detroit’s ass 42-10
The Minnesota Vikings have won three games in a row to bring them to 6-6 for the season as they (Gasp!) make a run for the playoffs with four regular season games remaining.

Let me take care of this one credit right now. All season long the Viking Thunder has been ultra critical on head coach Brad Childress and the direction of the Vikings. Today, the team came to play.

Speaking of coming to play today, Adrian Peterson returned to the field after a two week injury layoff. Peterson had 15 carries for 116 yards and two touchdowns and one reception for 10 yards. I said it early, I’ll say it again, that Adrian Peterson is rookie of the year and a certain all pro candidate as he now has double digit touchdowns and 1200 yards rushing. The knee brace didn’t slow him down one bit. In fact, if anything, it made Peterson look more agile, shifty, and fast. If that’s possible.

Tarvaris Jackson had his first 200 yard passing game this season. Jackson finished 18-24 for 204 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. And no fumbles.

Chester Taylor also came to play today. Taylor’s stats were 14 carries, 70 yards, one touchdown, two receptions for 17 yards. Dare I say Peterson and Taylor are the best duo running backs in the NFL.

Sidney Rice is improving every week and ha found his niche as possession receiver and red zone touchdown maker. Rice did not disappoint as he finished with 5 catches for 53 yards and the fade TD catch.

Troy Williamson sat out this wee due to a concussion and Aundrae Allison got the nod and made the most of it returning a kickoff for a Viking record 103 yards. He also hauled in two catches for 52 yards.

I have to love the trick plays with the fake field goal setting up future opposing teams to keep them honest and perhaps opening up yet more trick plays for the future.

As usual, the defense played very stout against the run holding the Lions to only 23 total yard rushing. Also held Kitna in check for the most part allowing 260 yards passing with two big plays but sacked Kitna three times and knocked him down several more.

Honorable mention to Udeze for the interception and rumbling for 30 plus yards.

Final Thoughts:

The Vikings are 6-6 and in the playoff hunt and travel to San Francisco next week for yet another critical game. if the Vikings have aspirations for post season play, they must win on the road against the 49ers.

I have to admit, every time Adrian Peterson touches the ball, I anticipate a big play. So far this year, Peterson is everything advertised, big, strong, elusive, fast, powerful, instinct, vision, and a work ethic second to none. He needs 609 yards to break Eric Dickerson’s rookie rushing record, which he must average 152 yards in his final four games. For some reason, I think he can do it, even achieve another 200 plus yard game.

Tarvaris Jackson is 6-2 as a starter this year. He is not lighting up the NFL but I have noticed steady improvement every week. I am still concerned with his time clock, he holds the ball just a split second too long. And someone needs to teach him to slide when he scrambles. Jackson is injury prone, and although I give him credit leading head first, take the slide to save your body for the next play, game.

Honestly, being December 2nd, I did not believe the Vikings would be remotely in the playoff hunt. I expected them to be competing for a very high draft pick.

Four game left, we need some help to reach the playoffs, but at least we are not eliminated.

    Fabulous win yesterday. Vikings are 6-6 and hot, three wins in a row and travel to the forty niners next week.
    Peterson was hurt, sure didn’t look like it. he is the real deal.
    Jackson had a good game, real good game, 75 percent completion rate, over 100 for QB rating, and only one bad play trying to force the ball in at the goal line.
    Childress can now go buy Christmas presents, his job is secure for at least one more season.
