Vikings lead 13-0 at half, moving toward 4-1

AP

The Vikings were without a doubt the league’s least-inspiring 3-1 team.

But they’re halfway to 4-1 with another effective game, leading the Titans 13-0 at the break.

They’ve held the Titans to 87 yards of total offense, and forced two turnovers, dominating them at the line of scrimmage.

And even though Christian Ponder threw his first interception of the year, they’ve had just enough offense to get by.

Percy Harvin has 95 yards and a touchdown on six touches, running for the score. Adrian Peterson has 10 carries for 35 yards, as they continue to be not much to look at.

But it’s working.

  1. They constantly praise Ponder’s good decision making skills. I like Ponder, but every game he makes 2-3 really stupid throws, and you sit there yelling don’t throw it. Now he has two picks on the day. What was he thinking…

    Adrian Peterson and Percy Harvin have been beasts!

  2. Good thing they’re playing this one on “Rookie” difficulty. Eventually they need to move on to “Veteran” though. Maybe that’s what they tried in Week 2. I didn’t see the game so I don’t know.

  3. Least inspiring? Says who? Most of the people I see or have read reporting on the Vikings have said just the opposite.

    They completely controlled the game against the team everyone felt was the best in the NFL (49ers) and beat a second playoff team from last year on the road (Lions). The defense has been surprisingly impressive, while the special teams has made a huge difference.

    They’ve cut down on penalties, turnovers and sacks. They’ve had improved play from their weakest positions: offensive line, defensive backfield and wide outs.

    Who knows how things will shake out as the season progresses, but they are definately moving strongly in the right direction.

  4. Lots off games left kids. Viks will finish 3 rd best in NFC north, just ahead of the 4th place team.

  5. They have a cupcake schedule. They aren’t good or anything. Ponder has no arm strength. Number 28 runs like he has lead in his shoes. I mean really.
