November 30, 2018 07:40PM
in a Thursday Night Football matchup that could go along way in determining playoff seeding.The list of inactives contains a few names that could Brian O'Neill Jersey at least raise an eyebrow.Let’s begin with the Los Angeles Rams.Mark Barron, LBDominque Easley, LBSebastian Joseph-Day, DTJohn Kelly, RBJoJo Natson, WRTanzel Smart, DTGreg Zuerlein, KNot too many surprising names, although there were some rumblings ealier in the week that Barron could be a go for the game.One name that isn’t on the list is Cornerback Marcus Peters, who has been hobbled with a calf injury.If he plays, that’s a huge help for the Rams’ secondary.The Minnesota Vikings have a couple of surprises on or off the list - depending on your perspective.Everson Griffen, DEAnthony Harris, DBJalyn holmes, DTTom Johnson Rashod Hill Jersey Black Friday , DTMarcus Sherels, DBKyle Sloter, QBBryan Witzman, OGTo see Tom Johnson’s name on the list, along with Jalyn Holmes is a huge surprise, considering that Jaleel Johnson and Tashawn Bower are the only two backup defensive linemen listed on the depth chart.With Everson Griffen’s situation - and considering the Rams’ offensive line has been playing at a high level, depth at that position seems like it should be at a premium.The open thread is up.Enjoy the game, and SKOL Vikes! Merry post-win Monday, everyone!Hey, it was another win by the good guys yesterday, and they moved ever-so-close to their rightful spot, atop the NFC North. What did everyone think of the game? I really loved the defense, these past two games look have looked much better than they have since halftime of the near-miss against New Orleans in the playoffs last year (I don’t get that term. If you narrowly avoid disaster, they call it a near-miss https://www.minnesotavikingsshop.com/Jalyn-Holmes-Jersey , shouldn’t it be called a near-hit? That’s always bugged me). The defense really won the game yesterday, they scored 3 of the team’s 4 touchdowns, and held the Cardinals offense to very little. The running game........was marginally better, but no one will confuse our running game with Adrian Peterson v.2012. 70-80 yards per game and 3 yards a carry isn’t good enough, let’s hope we see some improvement. The line was actually opening some lanes yesterday, and there were a couple decent runs, and the YPR was dragged down a bit by the 4th quarter, grind the clock routine, but our rushing attack still needs to produce more than it has been. That really sucks about Mike Hughes’ injury, the kid was showing some good stuff in his rookie year, let’s hope for a speedy and full recovery. Other than that, Thielen is a certified animal, there were a couple of Treadwell sightings!, Cousins held his own Laquon Treadwell Color Rush Jersey , the kicker didn’t cause any heartburn, and the team got its second win in a row. They continue to build momentum as they near the midpoint of the season, so let’s hope they keep on keepin’ on. Next, the team will go on the road and travel to New York Jersey, where they’ll take on the Jets. Kickoff is scheduled for noon.Aroundthe DN since our last open thread:Chris takes a look at where the Vikes are after week six, and it’s pretty much where many thought they’d be.The team said that they fear Mike Hughes tore his ACL yesterday. Man, that sucks.Saxyprince posted Climbing the Pocket: Episode 114 [The Flu Pod]Vikings news from other sources and news from around the rest of the league:At Vikings.com, catch Zimmer’s post-game locker room speech, see all the highlights from yesterday’s game, hear Zimmer’s post-game press conference, and there is much, much more to sift through in the media vault.ESPN has the headlines from the week 6 NFL action across the league.NFL.com has the scores and highlights from week 6.We come to today’s media selection:My favorite DN tradition, I love playing this. STRIKE UP THE BAND!Again, we all know the rules Linval Joseph Jersey , but in case someone is new:No discussion of politics or religionNo feeding of the trollsThis isn’t a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the doorKeep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tagsNo pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employerIf you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go awayWhile navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasmWith that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up and tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waitress, and try the pickled northern.
