Two division road contests have resulted in two division road losses. Hopefully the cure for what ails the Vikings are the Cleveland Browns, who visit Mall of America Field today at noon.

Matt Kalil: I’m not freaked out by one bad game

By Josh Alper

Vikings left tackle Matt Kalil didn’t have the best preseason, picking up personal fouls and giving up sacks to the opposition during the team’s exhibition games.

It’s easy to forget those things when a player comes out and plays at a higher level when the games start counting, but it gets viewed […]
