Lions won’t mail it in, at least not intentionally

By Mike Florio

On Sunday, the Lions have nothing to play for. But they say they’ll still try to win the last game ever played at the Metrodome. “It would look even worse to people that still are following this team if we went to Minnesota and mailed it in,” receiver Nate Burleson […]

Minneapolis, MN – Vikings running back Adrian Peterson changed the way that players look at rehabilitation last year as he recovered from a torn ACL in less than a year and ran for 2,097 yards. This year, he set his goals […]

Report: Christian Ponder is on 'much shorter leash' than most realize

By dwetmore@1500espn.com

A national report came out Sunday morning that Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder is on a shorter leash than many think. That’s a little surprising, given all the talk locally about Ponder’s job security.

Here’s what NFL reporter Jay Glazer had to say about Ponder during the FOX NFL pregame show:

Only one game into the season, the Minnesota Vikings could provide a real tip as to how dedicated they are to making sure Christian Ponder remains their quarterback.

Adrian Peterson: 100-yard games are easy

By Michael David Smith

Adrian Peterson was stopped short of 100 yards on Sunday against the Lions, and that shocked him.

Peterson, who scored a 78-yard touchdown on his first carry of the season but was held to just 15 yards on 17 carries the rest of the way, says it’s hard for him to […]

Week 2 Preview: Vikings At Bears

Thankfully for the Vikings, the limited number of games in the regular season schedule doesn’t allow for teams to dwell on the past too much, either positively or negatively. That’s a great thing in this particular instance, because the Vikings came out of the gate and stumbled in nearly every facet of the 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 […]

Kevin Williams practiced Wednesday and could play Sunday in Chicago

By dwetmore@1500espn.com

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Vikings defensive tackle Kevin Williams could play this Sunday if all continues to go well.

Williams participated – although he was limited – in Wednesday’s no-pads practice, his first time back in action since taking a cheap shot that bruised and hyperextended his right knee in the team’s third […]

Kevin Williams back at practice, on track to play Sunday

Posted by Josh Alper

The Vikings defense didn’t do much to slow down the Lions offense in Week One and one reason why they might have struggled was the absence of defensive tackle Kevin Williams, who missed the game with a knee injury he suffered on a low block by 49ers guard Joe […]
