Beginning of the end for Vikings?
December 10, 2009 - Per Peterson
OK, they’re still 10-2 — the second-best record in the NFL — but the Vikings have some major problems and if they don’t fix them, they might not even win the NFC North. Find the panic button on your remote Sunday, just in case. Minnesota can’t seem to run the ball anymore, Brett Favre’s performance last weekend against the Cardinals has some talking that he might be in line for one of his bad stretches and the team — on both sides of the ball — is as banged up as it has been all season. The offensive line is hurting, the team’s best linebacker might not ever play again, and Antoine Winfield, widely considered to be one of the top corners in the league, might not play until the playoffs. All this, and the 9-3 Bengals are coming to town. Cincy is a team that knows how to run the ball, knows how to stop the run and has a pretty good air attack as well, and as we all know, the Vikings throughout the years have had major problems against top-notched quarterbacks — the Warners, Mannings and Palmers of the world. Things could turn around for the Purple this weekend if they can find a way to beat the Bengals and improve to 11-2. But things could also get terribly ugly if they can’t.
