NFL Midseason Awards

This just in: we’re at the half-way point of the NFL season. Thus, someone who writes for this little corner of the Inter-web is obligated to do some kind of “midseason awards” type of piece. Since I was the one who handled the Vikings' midseason awards post, I might as well be the one to also do the NFL mid-terms.

Halloween Starts The Scary Road Ahead

It’s Halloween, when all the little ghouls and goblins dress up in their scariest finery and head door-to-door to extract treats at the threat of tricks. We Minnesotans will gladly hand over any treats in hopes that the gods of All Hallows Eve accept it and they don’t visit another Halloween blizzard on us. Anything but that.

Vikings Midseason Awards

We’re at the half-way point of the schedule so it’s time to do some reviewing and hand out a few “awards” for performance over the first half of the season. We didn’t have the budget for trophies. Maybe we’ll get some done for the end-of-season awards. Or maybe next year.

Everson Griffen Making a Mark on Defense

The Vikings didn’t earn a lot of fans when they signed Everson Griffen to a five-year deal “worth” $42.5 million, though of course that number can vary based on who you ask. Though the structure of the deal was friendly to the team, they raised more than a few eyebrows with the signing. Is he starting to pay the Vikings back already?

The Designing Of A Defense

It was a defensive effort that pushed the Vikings to a 19-13 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. While the defense yielded another late game go-ahead touchdown to the opposition, it was Anthony Barr’s strip, fumble recovery and fumble return for TD that ended up winning the game in overtime.

The Vikings Barr-ly Beat the Bucs In Overtime

Football taketh away and football giveth back. In a game that looked like neither team wanted to win in the first half and then both teams scrambled for in the second half, the Minnesota Vikings beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 19-13 in Tampa on Sunday.

Vikings at Tampa Bay: Rookies Shine in Close Win

We were told it was a different Vikings team from the one who lost more than a handful of close games last year after the Buffalo loss last week. As the clock wound down in regulation in Tampa Bay, it certainly didn’t seem like the case. The Vikings came up short on that drive, but with time on the clock—after allowing rookie tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins a touchdown to put the Buccaneers ahead by three—the Vikings proved superior to the malaise that infected Vikings fans in the final moments.
