Week 3 Preview: Vikings Vs Browns

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. As much as you’d hate to think that a week 3 game should be considered a “must-win”, this one might actually qualify. […]

Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder’s 2013 season did not get off to a good start as he turned the ball over four time on the way to a 34-24 loss to the Lions last Sunday.

By: Dan Cole | KFAN.com @DanDruffCole

Mankato, MN – The Vikings haven’t had a wideout tally more than 1,000 yards receiving in a single season since Sidney Rice did so in 2009 – going for more than 1,300 during that fairytale season propelled by Brett Favre’s ageless play as a 40-year-old.
