PFT’s Week Seven picks

Just when MDS was getting a little cocky, he got knocked down a peg or two. His six-game lead has been cut to four, after being swept in the two games on which we disagreed last week. This week, we disagree on two more. Which means that his lead could be down to two, soon. [more]

Mike Zimmer doesn’t think Anthony Barr’s hit on Aaron Rodgers was “dirty”

Alex Boone, Adrian Peterson reunite

If a year ago someone had said that Larry Fitzgerald, Adrian Peterson, and Alex Boone would be teammates, most would have assumed that Fitzgerald had been traded to or signed by the Vikings.

Bears score a touchdown on a fake punt

The Bears had not had a pass play over 30 yards this season, and it did not look like they were going to score a touchdown Monday night. It took a fake punt, but Chicago accomplished both.

Should Vikings trade for Adrian Peterson?

The Vikings need a running back. The Saints have an extra running back. The Vikings may have heard of him.

But [more]

Lions win hard-fought NFC North contest in Minnesota
