Historical Perspective On Vikings Comeback Win vs. Arizona

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 10, 2010 – 6:00 am

Our next entry will officially turn the page this week from reviewing last week’s win to focusing on this week’s game against the Chicago Bears. But before we do that, let’s take a look at an interesting fact about the Vikings 27-24 comeback win over Arizona with the help of the Elias Sports Bureau.

According to Elias: “The Vikings overcame a 24–10 deficit in the final 4 minutes of the 4th quarter and then scored in overtime for a 27–24 victory over the Cardinals.  It was the first time in team history that Minnesota won a game after trailing by 14 or more points with less than 4 minutes to play.  In fact, no NFL team had done so since the Colts rallied late for a 38–35 overtime win at Tampa in 2003.”

Thanks go to Kevin Seifert – ESPN’s NFC North blogger – for passing the info along.

    No team has done it since 2003. Wow I didn’t know they kept records of that far back.

    Just goes to show you what a Number #20 ranked football player of the 100 Greatest Players can do when given the time and the receivers are playing like they should! AP also needs to pick up his blocks better on passing plays. And Mckinney needs to realize he has the most important blocking assignment, his QB’s blind side. (But Mckinney is playing better than last year) If this O-line and RBs block their a s s e s off and give Favre the time he needs and these receivers get open and catch the ball. THIS TEAM WILL WIN EVERY GAME! I gurantee it!

    BTW, people keep talking about Frazier as a replacement if Chilly lost his job and I disagree. If anyone should be promoted it should be Bevel, when him and Favre run the show, THEY SCORE POINTS!!! And Frazier doesn’t blitz enough and when I see Packer players stripping the ball and stealing the ball for touchdowns I just wonder WHEN IS FRAZIER GOING TO TEACH OUR PLAYERS THAT THEY CAN STRIP THE BALL TOO!!!! TURNOVERS WIN GAMES FRAZIER!!!! TEY BLITZING MORE AND TEACH YOUR GUYS HOW TO STRIP THE BALL! Greg Camirillo who saved us that touchdown, learned that trick somewhere else, certainly not under you!!! Come on Frazier, you are better than this! You have great talent on this defense and YOU ARE NOT UTILIZING ALL THAT TALENT!!!

    This team can be 11-5 when the season is done, with Sidney back and the D back, the spark can roar and take it all the way.

    another perspective on this game:

    Former Vikings beat writer Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times, who now covers the Bears, writes in advance of Sunday’s game between the two teams that the Vikings remain chilly toward Childress.

    “We know that Childress doesn’t have our backs, so why should we have his?” one player told Jensen. “We’re playing for us, and we’re winning despite him.”

    “He has absolutely no people skills,” another team source said regarding Childress.

    Per Jensen, Childress’ post-game rip of quarterback Brett Favre following a narrow loss to the Packers pi s sed off more players than Favre. “For a lot of guys, that was a turning point,” an unnamed player told Jensen.

    too true the takeaways aint what they use to be; and this team has been the victim more than not; specieal teams have had their a s s e s handed to them too many times as well. yeah bevel would be a better choice, they opened up the play calling against the cards and hey they got some points out of it… the defense under frazier, though the stats are pretty good against the run and pass and overall ranking; still isn’t the same tenachious b a l l s-to-the-wall group as last year

    I agree, Childress people skills is terrible. He has the warmth of a rattlesnake. That’s why I wrote that post to help the guy out. He needs to lighten up, crack a smile, get rid of the dried up sarcastic humor. Take the players out for some fun. You want a family atmosphere in a locker room and brad is suppose to be the fun loving dad, not the mean a s s neighbor everyone despises. I don’t know, maybe his Dad was rough on him when he was growing up or didn’t show him enough love. Chilly probably needs a hug as much as he should give one.

    You think all coaches are suppose to be lovey dovey this is a mans game I think chilly is not strict enough he doesn’t show frustration when he loses. It is not everyone’s job to like you, I think this team needs a bill parcell’s type of coach someone who is going to get in your face if you make a mistake this team is constantly turning the ball over. Obviously chilly is not the right coach. Bill bellicheck doesn’t crack a smile or have people skills but he sure knows how to get his players to play for him. Coaching is not suppose to be a dad son relationship its players and coaches job the do what needs to be done to improve. I hope we get bill cowher type I know this team will straighten up this team lacks toughness because the coach is too soft.

    Sorry but mr rogers type of mentality is not going to get us to the superbowl anytime soon.

    @rocksalt..thanks for the link! Got a kick out of the posters on that thread saying that the players should come forward…LOL! They must not be fans of our club, and missed what happened when a player(Randy) comes forward…can you say waivers?? One comment that stuck with me and I feel that the opinion is correct. He said that with chilly the game will be close, but if Leslie had the helm they would get beaten badly. His thoughts were that the players would rally to the new coach. I believe he is correct in his take. The game last week was not won by the coaching, it was won by the talent on our club! One has to wonder how much longer Zygi is going to let this clown guide us?? Is it going to take us actually missing the playoffs? Even packer fans that I was watching the game with were able to see that chilly is not in his environment!!
