Vikings Defeat Ravens 33-31 10/18/2009

Posted by LOTGK on October 19, 2009

vikings saints preview


Sidney Rice - 6 for 176

I know, I know, I know times are changing,
Its time we all reach out 4 something new,
That means u 2,
U say u want a leader,
But u cant seem 2 make up your mind.
I think u better close it,
And let me guide u 2 the purple rain.

Adrian Peterson versus Ray Lewis. Young gun Joe “Cool” Flacco versus Captain Retirement. Ed Reed versus Sidney Rice. Brad Childress versus Balloon Boy dad Richard Heene. Not even Balloon Boy could upstage this classic meeting between the Vikings and the Ravens.

Adrian Peterson got the best of Ray Lewis rushing for over 140 yards with a gaudy 6.5 yards per carry. Flacco had a career day throwing for 385 yards and two TD’s but Captain Retirement brought the team back once more and compiled a very steady 21-29 for 278 yards and three TD’s. And oh yea, a 60 yarder at the end of the game to position Longwell for the game winning field goal. Ed Reed got the toast side of the bread as Sidney Rice had a career day catching 6 passes for 178 yards. Alas, Balloon Boy dad had better judgment and fewer mistakes than coach Brad Childress.

The Vikings are 6-0, atop their division with a two game lead. Brett Favre has never been 6-0. He is now in uncharted territory. The visiting Ravens came to play as the game was decided on the very last play of the game. An errant field goal attempt by the Ravens kept the Vikings perfect. Vikings 33, Ravens 31.

Joe Flacco threw for 385 yards. All pro cornerback Antoine Winfield is sorely missed. Winfield had a toe injury and is listed as questionable for next week against the Steelers. With Winfield missing from the defense, run support was weak and obviously, the secondary was lax. No way would Rice have had that 22 and 33 yard TD runs if Winfield was on the edge. Nor would Mason have caught that 12 yard pass in the Endzone. Get well soon Antoine. The Vikings need you.

Brett Favre didn’t know if Ravens kicker Hauschka made the field goal at the end of the game. WTF!!! Yes, three exclamation points! He had to ask Tarvaris Jackson if they won or not. Perhaps he was pondering retirement once again. Brett, I’m calling you out here man. If any other player were in the same situation, there would be hell to pay.

With that said, you had a hell of a game. 72% completion, 278 yards, 3 TD’s, and the game winning drive at the end of the game. Still, not knowing if the Vikings won or lost, not good Brett.

Jared Allen was robbed Sunday. He recorded a sack but was robbed of another. Instead, he was awarded a tackle for loss. Wait a minute, the quarterback was in the pocket and Allen tackled him behind the line of scrimmage. That is a sack.

Percy Harvin re-injured his shoulder on Sunday on a kickoff. His arm was hanging at his side. For the Pittsburgh game, the Vikings will need to be at 100% and Harvin is an integral part of the offense and special teams.

The Vikings go on the road traveling to Pittsburgh this Sunday and then to the big top circus at Lambeau field for the return of Brett Favre. I know that no team should ever over look the defending Super Bowl champion Steelers, but one has to wonder where Favre’s mind set will be. The first Packer-Viking game several weeks ago was huge, the highest rated football game on ESPN. Imagine the media frenzy when the prodigal son returns home.

Until next week.

    So far so good. The steelers will be a real test for Favre and the Vikes. If they win on the road at Pittsburgh, I will be a believer in them.

    • LOTGK said

      Agreed. The next two games will battle test the Vikings. Away at the defending super bowl winner Pittsburgh and then to green Bay for Brett Favre’s return home. Two very tough games.

    I am so stoked that Brett Farve is coming to town (I live in Pittsburgh). I am glad it’s the Steelers that get to silence all this Brett Farve hype. I hope he does not get hurt. He’s passed his prime and about to step into hostile territory against a wicked defense.

    • LOTGK said

      i don’t know if any one team can silence Captain Retirement and his flying media circus. The Vikings are 6-0, which is a far better start than any season under Childress, and quarterbacks Brad Johnson, Gus Frerotte, Holcombe, Bollinger, Tarvaris Jackson, and Sage Rosenfels.

      Agreed Favre is past his prime. At 40, he is not nimble as he once was. However, his arm strength is still there, and his command of the offense and ability to dissect a defensive scheme is second to none.

      The Steelers are the defending Super Bowl champions, they have an amazing coach in Tomlin, an all pro quarterback in Big Ben, a very solid offense and one of the best defenses in the league. This will be by far the biggest challenge this season for the Vikings.

      And given the facts that the Vikings are playing an away game, in an outside stadium, and on grass, gives the Steelers a huge advantage.

      Adrian Peterson will have to carry the load to slow down the blitz happy Steelers and hopefully Antonie Winfield and Percy Harvin will be available for Sundays game.

      Good luck.
