Book is out on how to beat no-longer-unbeaten Vikings

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) As the last team in the NFL to lose this season, the Minnesota Vikings had played well enough to keep their weaknesses mostly hidden.

VIKINGS VERSUS: Tracking The Minnesota Defense With NFL History (WEEK 7)

It wasn’t the prettiest of efforts for the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday in Philadelphia, but at the end of the day the team is still 5-1 on the season.

Vikings Have a Big Problem

First off, I know how this headline looks. The Vikings, the NFL’s last unbeaten team, are unbeaten no more. Thus, Joe Knee-Jerk, of the Professional Knee-Jerk Association (or “media,” as some call it) writes that, now, they stink. Oh, and by the way, he knew they stunk all along. (Bam!) And now he gets to sit back and wait for the oh-so-sweet social media attention to roll...

Vikings Cough up Perfect Season in Loss to Eagles

A lot was lost Sunday afternoon in Philadelphia: the game (the Eagles beat the Vikings 21-10), the perfect season (inevitable) and the optimism surrounding this team. The Vikings came out of the bye week sluggish and ineffective, and the Eagles, riding a two-game losing streak, were waiting for them and cleaned their clocks.

Sam Bradford snubbed former teammate Carson Wentz?

You don’t need to be a genius to understand that Sam Bradford’s relationship with the Philadelphia Eagles didn’t end on the best of notes. Bradford signed a two-year extension with Philadelphia during the spring, only to see the team trade up for the rights to select Carson Wentz No. 2 overall in the 2016 NFL Draft.
