Just Like Old Times – Vikings Win Thriller 27-24

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 7, 2010 – 4:17 pm

The defense registered 6 sacks and allowed just 93 yards in the 2nd half, QB Brett Favre guided the offense to 17 points after halftime – including a game-tying 25-yard TD pass – and K Ryan Longwell booted a game-winning FG from 35 yards out. It all came together and the result was a dramatic 27-24 victory in front of another soldout, raucous crowd at Mall of America Field.

It was just like old times.

The Vikings won games in this fashion on a regular basis during the 2009 season but they’ve come out on the wrong side of drama-filled games several times already in 2010. This time, though, the Vikings came out on the right side and it’s fair to wonder if Sunday’s win will serve as a turning point for the reining NFC North champs.

The win moves Minnesota to 3-5, a far cry from their 12-4 performance last season. But the reason we’ll watch to see if Sunday’s win serves as the turning point is because the win was emotional and it came after a tumultuous 2 weeks; perhaps it will galvanize the Vikings going forward. It also came about because the defense finally found its pass rush – 6 sacks of Derek Anderson – and Favre regained his form from last year – 36 of 47 for 446 yards and 2 TDs.

There will be much more to come as vikings.com’s coverage of this week’s win over the Cardinals continues tonight and into tomorrow.

    Yeah since playoff hopes are all but gone, I was kind of hoping they would lose so Chilly would get canned.

    Great game Childress! Great decision on dumping Moss! This win does not mean anything unless we beat the Bears next week. Arizona is a team we should beat easily. We still have not beat a team with a winning record. Chilly won this game… Favre almost lost it but came back strong and pulled it out. Nice job Brett you dirty old man. You still have a little game left you old bast ard.

    41 Years old broken up and still threw for 446 yards more than any other qb so far today, he rallied the whole team for this win, in spite of that horrible coach, Favre may rally this team to make the playoffs, but if Chilly remains the Vikings will be lost next season without Brett Favre.

    Now who says we need Moss for this team to win? Was not me I kept saying it was a bad choice to bring him in. Everyone that said Moss would only help this team don’t understand because he only hurt this team more because of how he plays. Like I said before thank god we got rid of him. As for the play calling that was good on who ever did it. I think that it was someone else this time calling the shots and who ever it was should keep doing it. Great Job Vikings. Keep it up and lets win against the Bears next week.

    ESPN Reports.

    Also, a confrontation between Childress and receiver Percy Harvin grew so heated Friday afternoon that coaches and players were forced to separate them to prevent a physical exchange, according to team sources.

    According to sources, Childress questioned Harvin’s effort during the practice. When Harvin took exception, Childress suggested Harvin submit to further testing on the ankle. The debate escalated and “was as close to physical as you can get,” according to the source.

    After the two were separated, according to sources, a teammate told Harvin: “You just did what a lot of us have been wanting to say for years.”

    Where are the na-sayers. Favre played a great game. The int. in the end zone was not his fault. The blocking was terrible and as soon as he dropped backed he was sacked. 446 yards passing and @ 41. Fantastic. Still some of the play calling was suspect as usual. Favre kept the offense rolling which was great to see. If they would play D like they did toward the end of the game & into overtime some of the out comes might have been different. That was a must win. Now if they can only win the next 2. Still Chidress needs to go. The altercation that took place was only the tip of the ongoing problems that are happening. Harvin was just expressing what the players and fans need to happen. The main reason that it probably wont is that the Vikings will owe Childress for his extended contract, which is approx 14million.

    I am exausted after watching that game! I’m so glad they won! Brett overcame some mistakes. I was mad after that INT at the goal line, but after watching the replay he was hit as the ball came out and it kind of flaoted. anyways, I am so glad that Brett and the rest of the team never quit and finished strong. maybe that was the “spark” that was needed to get this team rolling. It felt like the 49r’s game last year. now if they could get Sidney Rice back next week, that would be huge! people might complain that we should have beat them by more, but at this point I’m not going to complain after a WIN that saved the season at least for now. Brett playing at 41 with a fractured ankle/heal, I have no idea how he does it. can’t say enough about Percy’s performance on his bad ankle. and thank you Bernard berrien for showing up! the receivers all played great.

    Great win for Brett, Chilly and all the Vikes! Just wondering what would the outcome had been if you had Moss chasing after the Cardinal’s player who picked the ball off and nearly scored. Moss is a quitter. Moss is for Moss. We need team players not cry babies like Randy Moss. Good riddance that he is gone. The worst decision Chilly made was bringing him in and the best was kicking him out!!

    This was a great “Must-Win” today! With that being said, this team is in a “Must-Win” situation for every single game the rest of this year! To lose one more game would be to put us out of buisness! That means that they will need to go to the Bears next week and win a road game! They will need to beat the Pack the week after that, with the Pack coming off a bye rested. This team has dug a hole that I believe will do them in! I think it would be in the best interest of the team if Chilly were to go now other than later!

    Great win, but I think it falls under the catagory of it’s a little to late deal.

    Come on…it was the Cards!

  33. By MTVike on Nov 7, 2010 | Reply

    Surprise!!! Blitzing works! Why do we have to fall behind before opening the playbook? This game was won on player talent. Our Chilly play-calling usually gets us behind before we can get aggressive (both offensively and defensively) If we could play like that from the get-go, we could have 20-point leads at half time. We actually got Adrian outside the box a little(what a concept!) I just we could dump Childress, and keep these guys playing together. Great job in the fourth quarter!!

    Yeah, it was a win, and we’ll take it. But I don’t think this talent should be settling for wins like these. They should be playing the whole game like they played the fourth quarter. It’s all about aggressive play calling that takes advantage of our superior talent. Go Vikings!!! Go away Childress!!!

    Has Chilly realized that the 4th quarter play calling as far as defense and offense goes is the way they should play the WHOLE game? When he realizes that, this team will go all the way.

    Bruce is right on! Berrian hasn’t performed. He’s looked nervous going over the middle. Today, TODAY he showed he is a threat as an N.F.L. receiver still. He put his head and heart in it for the team! Good job Bernard! But, we’d be 2-6 if we hadn’t found a role for Camarillo. He defended a touchdown. Did a very good job bringing punts back. Overall, his hustle and toughness was encouraging. Schiancoe wasn’t in the game until the 4th quarter, but then showed he is still Pro Bowl calibur. I’m thrilled J. Allen was able to get 2 1/2 sacks, but he really didn’t get the motor going until the 4th quarter. We need a 4 quarter effort from 53 guys! We can’t be behind in the 4th or A.P. doesn’t get the touches. We haven’t won on the road this season, next week will be a very good test in Chicago. I feel a lot better about this team, but I’m concerned our line is still having trouble giving Brett time, as he was very quick to get rid of it today, and did get drilled several times. Especially when McKinnie let his guy come clean on an inside rush! But, we’ll enjoy this one and hope for 4 quarters in Chicago!

    Hey chilldress, you have the best RB in the league with Peterson and played a team that was 30th against the rush. If you don’t pound the ball down people’s throats you are a disgrace. Do you seriously think that you can trick teams by passing the ball? Stick with your strengths and run the ball. Btw, our defense needs to be aggressive in order to win. Start with that and Drop Zone to counter the adjustments along with varying blitz packages. This game should have been 35-10 vikings. FIRE CHILDRESS!

    Bad play calling is: Running Peterson(or anyone) up the middle on first down, when you know you can’t create a hole. Use some miss-direction, and send him around the other end. His big runs always come outside the box. Its just that he usually has to “bounce out” after hitting the pile. Bad play calling is only sending one receiver past 10 yards when its 3rd and 10. We do it consistantly. Why not put T-Jack or Webb in at the goal line and roll them out. They could usually run it in…or at least the defense would think so, and you can run Peterson the other way. Bad play calling is running up the middle on 4th and goal. There’s 11 guys waiting for it.

    We SHOULDN’T be calling different plays just because we aren’t behind yet. Since Tice, then Childress got here, we play consevative, till we get behind, then get aggressive. Before Tice, and when Favre took the reins last year, we were willing to jump to an early lead and pull away from teams. When they fear the pass, Adrian can put them away!

    FAVRE MADE ONE BAD THROW, THE OTHER PICK WAS BECAUSE HE WAS HIT (MCKINNEY’S FAULT) WHILE HE WAS THROWING IT AND THE BALL FLOATED.

    It is completely beyond me how you can call this a well played game or even a welll coached one. Did we win? Yes, barely, to a losing team at home.
    the differednce between us true fans and you 2 cheerleaders is that we do not simply cheer positively about everything…..have you ever been critcal of the vikes performance win or lose???
    You two seem like mouthpieces for Childress……kinda like ventriloquist dummies

    as close as this was. at least we won. but our defense didnt show until the last couple min. of the game. where were they before? im happy but im also thinking ahead on how things will go. we have to play the packers again. we still have to play the bears twice. oh and the eagles and redskins. our defense has to dominate all game like they did last year

    You know Larry and your partner who can’t be orginal enough to come up with his own blog name…………….I’ve been on this blog for a few years now….unlike the both of you two tools and really it has gotten quite boring! We have tools like your selves coming on here pretending to be real fans but the only time you show up are during winning streaks…meaning this season a win because there are no winning streaks this year. You show up after a win on Sundays only….no where to be found during the week. You attempt to call out people that you are threatened by, like myself, because I simply know more than you. It’s really classic that you waited all week for me to jump on here after the game was over…really typical of tools who get picked last for everything, work in a small cubicle all week, can’t find a date, order drinks at a bar that have umbrellas in them, and spend their Fri. and Sat. nights playing video games with their “Freinds” who live another country. The fact that I got under your skin that much, got under your skin so you couldn’t stop thinking about it all week because it brought up such vivid, deep, hurtful memories of your grade school years, your high school years, it’s amazing to me!

    Soldier– why was Childress depressed? Go to work every week and have 60,000 people hate on you– everywhere he goes people mock him, verbally spit at him. If you do not think words affect an atmosphere– recall a situation where you accidentally come into a room where an argument just occurred– you can feel the tension, the negativity. I agree Childress has made some poor choices, but I do not agree with the disrespectful comments leveled at him.

    I haven’t been on here for awhile so wonder if anyone mentioned that the “Moss” outburst against the “Food” was staged!!!! Moss wanted to do something/anything to be just another distraction for the team facing his obvious beloved Patriots!! And he obviously didn’t even try against the Patriots. I just think he is so devious and mean that he did that on purpose. I have never liked Randy Moss but he did open things up for Percy Harvin. And who knows, maybe if they had fired Chilly and kept Moss…Moss would have actually “tried.” But this team has enough talent that if they would fire Chilly maybe this team could win a bunch more games…it is for sure that Chilly lost at least 2 games for the Vikes.

    Apparently each team has to supply the Head Coach and QB to make comments/pressers after the game. This is very sad because it causes many of our young fans to think the game is all about the coach and qb. They never learn that football is “played in the trenches.” That’s where it all happens.

  133. By Frederick Jones on Nov 7, 2010 | Reply

    One of the most important positions on any team is the center. He has to direct the line’s blocking, snap the ball, and be quick enough to block somebody. It takes a special person to be the center. One of the reasons for the Vikings improvement has been a healthy John Sullivan, the team’s center.

    okay guys no negativity just facts:east- giants 6-2 eagles 5-3 skins 4-4
    west- rams 4-4 hawks 4-4
    south- falcons 6-2 saints 6-3 bucs 5-3
    north- gb (after tonight) 6-3 bears 5-3
    most likely are best chance for a playoff run is through the wildcard really don’t see one coming out of the west, we still have to play top 3 in the east, chi twice and gb once it doesn’t look too promising. i don’t think chi is as good as their record even if we pulled into second place in our div i think one if not both wildcard spots would come out of the south. lets say the bucs don’t make it still have the eagles in the east. long story short i think we will need ALOT of help for this playoff dream to happen. personally if it’s a lost cause i’d rather do cr-appy and get a good draft pick and look to improve next year. maybe a new coach, a left tackle would be sweet, some db help

    Well said, Moorevikes.

    Mathematically, the only help we need is for the GB Packers to lose one more game than we do, IF we take care of business (which is a long shot). If we win out in division, we would be ahead of them in division wins (we’d have one, they’d have 2 minimum, as I THINK they’ve lost to Chi already…). If that is the case, we need someone to put one extra loss on them to tie us up, and we’d own the tie-breaker. How’s that for some positive thinking?

There are many of you who are talking about Chilly losing his team. Players play for each other, not the coach. Winning cures a lot of ills within a team. If we can beat Chicage and Green Bay, we’re .500 with a very favorable schedule. Keep the faith team. I think that we still have a playoff run left in us.

    We need to worry about our division first. We are only two back in the loss column with Chi and GB. AND we play CHI twice and have another game with GB. 10-6 will win this division. I think a 10-6 Vikings team will be veery formidable in the playoffs, given the adversity that they’ve been throgh this season.

    They’d need to play a LOT better to make it to 10 – 6. It was nice to see the defense actually PLAY there in the last two cards possessions, tho. It seems Frazier must have read some literature at halftime about defenses being able to send more than 4 down lineman after the QB. Blitz? What is this… Blitz… you speak of? Good job on the defense finally waking up a bit at the end.

    To you Moss anti-enthusiasts … :p

    If a receiver, lets say a guy wearing an 84 as an example, draws a double team every play he is on the field, that is what is called an ADVANTAGE for the offensive squad. A double team means that our TEN remaining players get to play against their NINE remaining players. This is GOOD.

    Frederick Jones… Favre gained all those yards because of the FAILURES early in the game. If they’d have scored when they had made those long drives earlier, they’d have run the ball more to run down the clock, thereby lessening Favres success in the passing game. The line still played poorly or our friend Brett wouldn’t have been picking himself outta the carpet every other pass play. He had a high PASSER RATING because he didn’t have time for the long ball, just enough for a screen or a quick slant. The long pass plays were YAC for the most part. Thank you, and have a swell evening.

His “compassionate, need a hug” comment was referring to a presser question Favre answered a few weeks ago. Favre jokingly replied to a question about Childress’ level of compassion as a coach with something like “Compassionate? Like I’m gonna get a hug or something? Man, I could sure use one right now, I’ll tell you…” Go ahead and rag on Chilly, but please keep it rational.

    I am not ready to give up on this season. It is obvious that we need to use the hurry up more.. This takes more of the coaching out of the equation. It makes the pass rushers tired and slower and gives Favre time, and the defensive preparations little. Result:~~> points instead of punts. Also our giant linemen are not so tired witout the walking back and forth from the huddle. The hustle from Greg is a welcome change from Moss attitude. The Chilly Dog must go! Even if we win the superbowl, taser him after the gatorade bucket though.

    The Positive…

    1.) The season is still alive. The vikings play the Bears and the Packers back to back. If they win both of these games, they are right back in this thing!

    2.) Our receivers played well. Berrian finally showed up and helped. Harvin proved he is a stud, and Shianco made a big play. Camarillo looked good and really hustled!

    3.) The defense looked good in the OT stand

    4.) Childress finally kicked the field goal instead of going for it like an idiot… made all the difference in this game!

    The negative…

    1.) The players were lazy early in the game, quitting before plays were done. The fumble that hit the leg of a viking running off the field was pathetic. If the viking player doesn’t quit, he would have seen the fumble and fell on it!!!! Hope they chew some butt when they see that on film.

    If this team is going to turn it around in the next few weeks, they need to play all four quarters and not quit on a play until the whistle blows.

    Whew, glad the Vikes pulled out that comeback. Don’t know why it took so long for everyone to start playing with some sense of urgency, but better late than never. Can’t say enough about Favre’s play, still injured but fighting til the end, amazing! Peterson did awesome, Berrian had a great game, Camarillo too, and Shank finally showed up with that late touchdown. Percy Harvin was priceless today and hope he can stay healthy. Our O line still concerns me cuz Favre is getting hit way too often. Defense needs to keep playing aggressive, and maybe, just maybe, we can stay in the running. Great TEAM victory, keep it up Vikings!

    I am glad we won. We needed a win, however Childress still needs to be fired ASAP. The team is still missing that fire and the reason the fire is missing, is because Childress keeps putting it out. Jared Allen sum it up best when he was asked if they (Vikings) won for Childress, Allen stated “we won for us”! The majority of the players think Childress is a joke, the majoity of NFL analysts think Childress is a joke, and of course Viking Nation thinks Childress is a joke…. So Wilf, do something positive for a change and fire Childress……..

    The players didn’t play for Childress they played for themselves. In fact, go ahead and fire Childress and the Vikings could go undefeated. A little backyard ball with Farve calling the plays.

    It’s about time the D came through they were once the heart of this team and yesterday they showed what they are capiable of.

We all know favre fights through injury and yesterday was one of his best days. I for one felt he should have been benched at the start of the game and by the end of the 3rd quarter I was on fire but I have to say he pulled it off as he has many times b4.

This team is fractured due to bad blood at the coaching level not at the player level-more like a coaches against the players scenerio…chilidog is one real bad loss away from getting canned; it happened in cowboy country, and brad is next…just a matter of time.

    Other than that, it was a great win for the guys, it showed true character and moxy so kudos to them all…
