Of The Five Remainings Games On The Minnesota Vikings’ Sched - Sport

Youth Garrett Bradbury Jersey , three of them are currently set to be prime time contests. They have two matchups on Monday Night Football, as they’ll take on the Seattle Seahawks in Week 13 in Seattle and the Green Bay Packers in Week 16 at U.S. Bank Stadium. They also have a Sunday Night Football date with the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 15, their final road game of the 2019 season.Now, the two Monday night games obviously can’t be moved, but the Sunday night game in Los Angeles could be fair game. With their loss on Monday night to Kansas City, the Chargers now sit at 4-7 on the season, and their postseason hopes are pretty much shot. If the league can find a more attractive matchup to move to that spot, there’s a chance that the Vikings might not be playing on Sunday night again after all. So, are there more attractive matchups in Week 15 as things stand right now? Here’s the Week 15 schedule, along with the records for each team as of today.Buffalo Bills (7-3) at Pittsburgh Steelers (5-5)Green Bay Packers (8-2) at Chicago Bears (4-6)New England Patriots (9-1) at Cincinnati Bengals (0-10)Seattle Seahawks (8-2) at Carolina Panthers (5-5)Houston Texans (6-4) at Tennessee Titans (5-5)Miami Dolphins (2-icon_cool.gif at New York Giants (2-8)Philadelphia Eagles (5-5) at Washington Redskins (1-9)Denver Broncos (3-7) at Kansas City Chiefs Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-7) at Detroit Lions (3-6-1)Cleveland Browns (4-6) at Arizona Cardinals Jacksonville Jaguars (4-6) at Oakland Raiders (6-4)Los Angeles Rams (6-4) at Dallas Cowboys (6-4)Atlanta Falcons (3-7) at San Francisco 49ers (9-1)Gotta be honest. . .there are not a whole lot of attractive matchups on that schedule that I can see right now.I suppose that if the Steelers pick things up a bit Mike Hughes Jersey , the Buffalo/Pittsburgh game could have some appeal. So could Houston/Tennessee, given how tight the AFC South race is and should be for the remainder of the year.Carolina seems to be in a bit of a tailspin, but if they correct themselves that Seattle/Carolina game could be an option. The only matchup on the schedule between teams that are over .500 through the first eleven weeks is Rams at Cowboys, and we know that NBC just can’t get enough of the NFC East in prime time, so that’s always an option, too.Both CBS and FOX can protect five games on their schedules from being flexed, and it wouldn’t be surprising to find out that Rams/Cowboys is one of those games that FOX has protected. The search I attempted to do for the protected games didn’t turn up any results, so I’m not sure if that information is readily available anywhere.So, what do you think, folks? Will we see the Vikings on Sunday Night Football in Week 15? MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — No miraculous play was needed for New Orleans to win this game in Minnesota Anthony Barr Jersey , no where-were-you moment that instantly went viral.Drew Brees and the Saints simply scored some revenge for their last-second loss in the playoffs last season by taking advantage of two key turnovers, including a 45-yard interception return for a touchdown by P.J. Williams, in a 30-20 victory over the Vikings on Sunday night.“This one had a little extra special meaning,” Brees said, flashing a slight smile after he went 18 for 23 to maintain his league-leading 77.4 completion percentage.Alvin Kamara scored twice, Wil Lutz made three field goals and Sheldon Rankins had two of the four sacks by the Saints (6-1), who needed only 120 passing yards by Brees to beat the Vikings (4-3-1) this time with far less tension down the final stretch and stay undefeated in four road games this year.“It’s everything we wanted it to be,” Rankins said.Stefon Diggs had 119 receiving yards and a score in his curtain call after the “Minneapolis Miracle” catch in the NFC divisional round here in January, but he stopped his drag route in a miscommunication with quarterback Kirk Cousins right before Williams picked the ball off for the pivotal third-quarter touchdown.Adam Thielen had another record-setting performance for the Vikings with 103 yards and a score, but he lost a fumble that was returned 54 yards by Marshon Lattimore to set up the go-ahead touchdown for the Saints.“We’re a really good football team Everson Griffen Jersey , but you can’t make mistakes in this league and win, especially on critical situations when you have the ball in the red zone,” Thielen said. “Obviously I’m going to think about that one for a while, and I’m definitely disappointed in myself.”The Vikings had the edge on both sides of the ball during the first half. Harrison Smith handed Brees his first interception of the season after 231 attempts without one, putting the Vikings in position to stretch a 13-10 lead.Late in the second quarter, Thielen drove forward for extra yards after a short completion and had the ball pried loose by Williams and Alex Anzalone at the 14. Lattimore scooped it up and raced the other way, before Laquon Treadwell took him down. Treadwell then slammed his helmet on the turf in frustration, drawing a devastating 15-yard penalty to give the Saints the ball at the 18 with 57 seconds remaining before halftime. Kamara soared into the end zone two plays later.“I was giving up a few plays,” Williams said, “but a turnover always turns the game around.”The Vikings started the second half with the ball and went for it on fourth-and-1 at their own 45. With an empty backfield Kyle Rudolph Jersey , Cousins had Treadwell open over the middle, but Lattimore broke up the pass to change possession and set up Lutz’s second field goal.“I told the team I was going to be aggressive,” coach Mike Zimmer said. “Every fourth down that was close, we were going to go for it.”SIZZLING STARTThe first evening kickoff of the season at U.S. Bank Stadium created an extra-energetic atmosphere, and the pregame hype video montage with replays of the last-snap catch and run by Diggs for the winning touchdown in the playoffs against the Saints only enhanced it.Defensive end Everson Griffen, returning from a five-game absence for mental health treatment, led the sprint out of the replica Vikings ship for introductions. Diggs was saved for last. Then the action came fast and furious.Kamara capped the opening touchdown drive by catching a forward flip on a jet sweep play with both backup quarterbacks, Teddy Bridgewater and Taysom Hill, lined up as wide receivers. Hill had taken a turn at quarterback earlier and threw a 44-yard pass to Michael Thomas, his second highlight-reel reception during that drive.Thielen climbed over the neck of Williams for a tricky third-down catch on the ensuing possession for the Vikings Linval Joseph Jersey , who kept on attacking the third-year nickel cornerback. Diggs beat him with a back-shoulder grab at the goal line and again four plays later on a toe-tap touchdown at the edge of the end zone on fourth down.Williams had a pass interference penalty on the next drive for the Vikings. That set up a short scoring run by Latavius Murray, who tossed the ball back to Cousins earlier on that possession for a 28-yard flea-flicker throw to Thielen.THIELEN ITThielen tied Calvin Johnson’s all-time NFL record of eight straight 100-yard receiving games, set in 2012 with Detroit. He also matched Patrick Jeffers with a fifth consecutive game with 100-plus yards and at least one touchdown, a mark set in 1999 for Carolina.INJURY REPORTSaints: CB Eli Apple, acquired in a trade with the New York Giants, made his debut in place of Ken Crawley, who was inactive but not on the injury report.Vikings: CB Xavier Rhodes (foot) was one of six starters held out with injuries. … Backup RB Roc Thomas left with a hamstring injury.UP NEXTSaints: Return home to host the Los Angeles Rams (8-0) next Sunday.Vikings: Stay home to face the Detroit Lions (3-4) next Sunday.
