It’s way too early to call Sunday’s Minnesota-Pittsburgh matchup a possible Super Bowl preview, but the Vikings and Steelers certainly both have playoff expectations. And both showed why in Week 1.   Pittsburgh went to Cleveland and came away with a 21-18 win that never felt as close as the score. The Steelers never trailed, led 21-10 for most of the second half and ran out...

By Athlon Sports, 4 months 1 week ago
For the first time since 2006, the Vikings head into a season without Adrian Peterson as the face of their franchise and the engine that drives their offense.

Dallas Cowboys vs. Minnesota Vikings Preview and Prediction

By John Gworek, 11 months 3 weeks ago
One could forgive Minnesota head coach Mike Zimmer if, while watching film of the Cowboys this week, he shakes his head and thinks “That should be us.” After all, the Cowboys are running roughshod over the NFL at 10-1 executing a blueprint that is much like what the Vikings had planned for this season.   It was nothing exotic: Run the ball effectively with a star back (Adrian...
