Kennedy started at DT in place of the inactive P. Williams
Sapp was again the Vikings nickel corner
Vikings at times utilized a 3-3-5 package against Bears 3 WR personnel, That kept Brinkley on the field
Clark 26 yds on 3rd + 3 came with both Clark and Olsen on the field, Vikings stayed with base 4-3 personnel

  • Week 10 story lines November 7, 2014
    Here are the top stories that I will be following in Week 10. Tennessee (2-6) at Baltimore (5-4) How does the RB situation behind Justin Forsett shake out? There’s some value in the #2 spot, but it’s a revolving door with Bernard Pierce and Lorenzo Taliaferro. Does Owen Daniels continue to be a large factor? He should because he’s a huge part of this passing […]

  • Week 9 story lines October 31, 2014
    Here are the top stories I will be following in Week Nine of the NFL. Jacksonville (1-7) at Cincinnati (4-2) Can Denard Robinson continue to produce behind a bad OL?
