8 Vikings-Titans Storylines To Follow

Posted by Mike Wobschall on October 3, 2012 – 6:42 am

Coming off a 20-13 victory over the Detroit Lions last week, the Vikings flip their calendars to Week 5 on Wednesday and prepare to embark on the second quarter of the 2012 regular season. To do so, they return to Mall of America Field on Sunday to take on their third AFC South opponent of the season – the Tennessee Titans.

Here are 10 Vikings-Titans storylines to chase this week…

1. Hasselbeck Likely To Start In Place Of Injured Locker
For the second consecutive week, the starting QB of the Vikings upcoming opponent is dealing with an injury that could prevent him from playing. Last week, it was Matthew Stafford with a hip injury. This week, it’s Jake Locker and his left shoulder. Stafford’s status for the game was technically in question, but it was a foregone conclusion very early in the week that he’d be able to play. That is not the case with Locker, however.

According to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean, Locker is unlikely to play on Sunday. If the Titans choose to rest Locker, it will be Matt Hasselbeck who makes the start against the Vikings. Hasselbeck is a 14-year veteran who knows the ropes. And while it may sound appealing to have the opponent’s starting QB on the mend and off the field, one could argue that Hasselbeck, who has 147 career starts in the NFL and last started against the Vikings in 2009, gives the Titans just as good a chance to win on the road in a tough environment.

At this point, count on Hasselbeck starting and the talk this week being about how his experience perhaps better equips him to play the Vikings this week.

2. What a Rush – Adrian Peterson and Chris Johnson Go Toe-to-Toe
Sunday’s game features two of the most explosive running backs in the NFL. The Vikings, of course, boast Adrian Peterson, who has more rushing yards (7,084) than any other player since 2007. The Titans offense features Chris Johnson, who rushed for 2,006 yards in 2009 and has more rushing yards (5,831) than any other player since entering the League in 2008.

Both Peterson and Johnson come into this week’s matchup off 100-yard outings last week, with Peterson pounding the Lions defense for 102 yards on 21 carries and Johnson slicing through the Houston Texans defense to the tune of 141 yards on 25 carries. Those big-time performances are significant moments for both players and their teams because there’s a sense that the superstar RBs are regaining their form after facing adversity a season ago – a holdout for Johnson led to his least productive NFL season and Peterson is returning from a knee injury.

Peterson faces a Titans defense that ranks 27th in the NFL and allows 136.5 yards per game on the ground, while Johnson will go up against a Vikings run defense that has been stout in 2012 and is allowing just 85.3 yards per game, good enough for 7th in the NFL.

3. Eye On Special Teams
The Vikings and Titans both have solid special teams groups, just ask the Detroit Lions. In Week 3 against the Lions, Tennessee scored on a 65-yard punt return and a 105-yard kickoff return en route to a wild 44-41 victory. The following week, the Vikings did the same thing to Detroit, scoring on Percy Harvin’s 105-yard kickoff return and Marcus Sherels’ 77-yard punt return on the way to a 20-13 win. The Vikings and Titans are the only NFL teams with kickoff return TDs on the season, and they are both among just 7 NFL teams with punt return TDs.

Each team has been solid in the kicking game, too. Titans K Rob Bironas has made 91.3% of his FGs the past two seasons and is 6 of 8 so far this year, while Vikings K Blair Walsh is off to a hot start in his first NFL season with 9 makes in 10 attempts and 3 FGs of 50+ yards already. Also, both Bironas and Walsh have been impressive on kickoffs. Bironas has 10 touchbacks on 18 kickoffs and is reaching the end zone on 94.4% of his kicks, while Walsh has 12 touchbacks already on 20 attempts and is reaching the end zone 95% of the time.

The special teams battle will be a fun one to watch this week because both teams are solid in all phases and both teams have the experience already this season of having their special teams group make a profound impact in victory.

4. Vikings Offensive Line: Keep Rolling
The Vikings offensive line is coming off consecutive impressive performances. Against a very good San Francisco 49ers defense, the Vikings offensive line paved the way for 146 rushing yards, 24 points and a 7-minute advantage in time of possession. The following week was good for the offensive line, too. Frazier said the offensive line generated its best performance of the season against Detroit, as Peterson ran for 102 yards on 21 carries and QB Christian Ponder was not sacked.

If the Vikings offensive line continues to execute well this Sunday, they should win their matchup against the Titans defensive front. There is plenty of talent on the Titans defensive line, there’s no question about that, but there’s something to be said for an offensive line that is playing with confidence and a nasty attitude. Plus, this is a Titans defense that ranks just 27th in run defense (allowing 136.5 rushing yards per game), has allowed a NFL-high 10 drives of 5+ minutes and has generated just 6 sacks in 4 games.

5. Will Tennessee Have A Good “Plan For Percy?”
Percy Harvin has been the Vikings most dynamic weapon in 2012, as evidenced by the fact that he ranks 3rd in the NFL with 30 receptions on 38 targets and ranks 1st in the NFL with 698 combined yards (345 return yards, 299 receiving yards, 54 rushing yards). Last week against vs. Detroit, though, Harvin was held in check on offense (not on special teams, though, as Harvin tallied a 105-yard kickoff return TD). He had 3 receptions for 22 yards and 3 rushes for 12 yards. After the game, Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier acknowledged that the Lions had “a good plan for Percy.”

The NFL is often described as a “copy cat” league, so you can expect the Titans to take some notes from the Lions plan and apply that to their own strategy for handling Harvin. The Vikings offensive staff will also be hard at work this week on that topic, though, as they’ll surely find creative ways to get Harvin the ball. This will be an interesting chess match to watch unfold this week.

As good of a season as Harvin is having, don’t be surprised if he and the Vikings offensive coaches find a way to get the diminutive playmaker back on track.

6. Kenny Britt Expected Back
The Titans have been without arguably one of their most talented players for most of the season, but after sitting out last week’s game he’s expected to be ready to go for this Sunday. Britt was a 1st-round pick of Tennessee’s back in 2009 and he began his career with 84 receptions and 12 TDs in his first 28 games. That production, along with his size (6-3, 215 pounds) and speed combination, had many thinking he was a player on the rise.

A serious knee injury last season that cost him 13 games and then a suspension for Week 1 of this season has slowed his progress some. But he’ll try to get back on track this week against a Vikings secondary that has been vulnerable in the past, but steadily improving over the course of the season. The Vikings held Calvin Johnson to 5 catches for 54 yards last week, and they’ll be challenged again this week by another big, physical and fast receiver in Britt.

7. Can The Vikings Utilize Simpson Well Once Again?
The Vikings wasted no time incorporating Jerome Simpson back into the lineup last Sunday. Coming off a 3-game absence, Simpson returned against Detroit and immediately made an impact on the game. He came away from the game as the Vikings leading receiver with 4 receptions for 50 yards, and also drew a pair of pass interference penalties in the 1st half that both led to points. Simpson’s 27-yard reception on a crucial play late in the game was vital to the Vikings efforts, too, because it allowed for more time to run off the clock.

With another week of practice to devise plans and schemes, it will be fun to see how the Vikings use Simpson this week against a Titans pass defense that is yielding the NFL’s highest passer rating (118.3) and has also allowed 16 completions of 20+ yards.

8. Hutch Returns to Minnesota
Steve Hutchinson will make his return to Mall of America Field for the first time since leaving the Vikings this past offseason via free agency. Hutchinson was originally drafted by the Seattle Seahawks with a 1st-round pick in 2001, but signed with the Vikings as a free agent in 2005. In 6 seasons with the Vikings, Hutchinson played in 89 games and helped the Vikings advance to the playoffs twice (2008, 2009).

Now with the Titans, Hutchinson is once again blocking for an explosive RB in Johnson, and he’s also blocking for a young QB in Locker (although Locker may not play in this game).

    This is a winnable game. If we play solid defense again, we can do it. Ponder will have better numbers, his low one’s last week were a product of play calling. Musgrave was just holding the lead and not turing the ball over.

    I would love to see Wright on the field!!!! Also I think Jenkins should be the NO.4 receiver on the team at best Aromashodu should take his place on the other side of the field from Simpson.

    Aromashudo, should be shown the door also…Let Summers come up from the practice squad…

    Simpson will be a HUGE help…But more help is needed at the WR position…Players willing to get physical and help this team out…

    At least in years past…Jenkins would at least throw a few blocks down field to help out…Now that even seems to be a thing of the past for him…

    Get Wright in there for Jenkins this week…Summers in for Aromashudo soon after that…

    Let these receivers know that not doing your jobs on game day, will not be acceptable !!!…

    The second story line doesn’t matter. Here is why Peterson got his new contract and got injured but he has came back and is nearly back to BEAST MODE. While Johnson(wow we can say Johnson) got his new contract and is playing like he doesn’t care. He only played for his contract and now that he has it there is no discussion Peterson even a one legged Peterson is better than Johnson.

    This appears to be a match-up that favors the Vikings. Titans defense hasn`t stopped anybody, on the ground or air. I look for a big game from A.P. Ponder should light it up as well. Hasselbeck is a wily vet who will probably be tougher to deal with than Locker, but he no longer moves well. and likely will fall victim to our pass-rush. Johnson? He won`t have much room, and won`t be a factor. Vikings31- Titans16 Skol, Vikings!!

    @ Tomcat I agree. H.M.G. should just let it rest. In fact- maybe H.M.G. should just re-write all of the blogs and re-post them so we can see what a truly gifted writer really sounds like…. Sheesh… Wobs may not be the perfrct writer. He is a fan first, and he does his job to keep us informed as fans. This is not a scholarly blog, nor is it a place where we should be criticising one’s writing style. I don’t think that he really gives a “wonk” (Hows that for a word Shakespear?) about what you think of his gramatical writing style or word issues. As long as I have a place to come and see what is going on with my Vikings and get the scoop of what the pulse is around the team and the fans, them I am all for it…

    The Titans are going to be a tough team and I expect they are preparing well for Percy. I think Musgrave is going to have to mix it up like he did with San Fran to make things less predictable. I think many of you are correct to say that we need to get Wright involved more and spread things out. We have some good match-ups in our favor this week. I think Simpson could have a huge game as well as Rudolph. Peterson is going to break one for a TD this week… Mark my words!

    Was Wobs your boss once or something H.M.G.? Obviously you have your opinion and I will respect that. Not everyone likes everyone’s style. So, on that note I will apologize for scolding you and just agree to disagree. Not trying to pick a fight, just not sure why you are so down on Wobs. He is ALWAYS in the corner of the Vikings and us fans so why rip on him for that?

    Vikings should be able to win the game at the line of scrimage on both sides of the ball. They should be able to stop johnson (who has faultered as of late) and with only one great reciever in Britt (who still needs work) we should have no issue shutting him down with an under rated secondary. Peterson should be able to run for 100+ in Sundays game and I look for Jerome to have at least 2 good shots down field. Harvin should get back on track (as if he was ever off track). I will be looking for Rudolf to come up big with at least one score this weekend. Final score of the game Vikes 31 Titans 24 – at the most

    Num num num, who cares, put something on the field for our purple people munchers defense to much on! I say we keep Percy out of the game, since there game plan is going to be on how to stop Harvin! Should be sack city at the dome sunday, older qb, our defensive line is getting better and better. H.M.G. who cares!!! this is a football blog, talk football!!! now, lets set our eye’s on the Titans like the purple people eaters of old did, or the purple people munchers of today (lineage thing there) a giant titan pie for all to eat. Don’t forget, we got the 12 player! the fans are going to be involved since were hot and got momentum, playing at home..

    @RichardA1…

    You can’t just take Harvin out of the game. Even if we don’t use him, we need to leave him on the field and move him all over the place as a distraction. Who cares what there game plan is to stop him, we will find creative ways to give him the ball and make sure he makes a play.

    I say you leave him on the field and get all fo the other WR’s involved. Like Simpson, Wright, Aromashadu, Jenkins and Burton. Let some of these younger, less utilized guys prove themselves. They are never going to get Burton up to speed if they just throw to Harvin all the Time (which trust me, I wish they could)

    @ BleedPurple… First of all I like your name…

    Second, I like the fact that the league is underrating us. Even in years past it always seems that when we get under rated. or the league picked the other team to win, we would come out and smash the other team. I hope the continue to act as if we don’t belong… so when Playoffs hit and we are in the top seed no one will know what hit them!

    I really have no idea why you are criticizing the writing of this article. From what I can see, both the syntax and writing mechanics of the article are more than serviceable. If the article is void of any eloquence, then that is fine, as it is a sports article, written with the intent of being concise and insightful. If you are unsatisfied with the columnist’s writing, then maybe you should apply for the job; I am sure your credentials equal that of Wobschall (Obvious sarcasm).

And why should he? He is getting paid to do this for a reason. they like his style and so do the rest of us. Sure he beats around the bush but he only does if its on an opinion based question. other then that he is a great writer.
    Back to the vikings. We need 1 more reciever that can produce. Joe webb is more then capable at doing this. I heard that he couldnt catch that well though. To which i say: there is no way that its easier for him to learn how to read a defense than it is to catch a ball. just move him there and make us all happy and make the team that much better.

    The O-line must come out and dominate from the get go and never let up in this or any other game for that matter. Chris Johnson bested Adrian Peterson the last time these two teams met and the only reason that happen was because of poor O-line play. Don’t think for one minute that Peterson doesn’t remember that game and how bad he wants to prove that he is the better running back if the O-line will step up to the challenge he will run wild. The challenge for Jeff Davidson the O-line coach for the Vikings is to get this group of O-linemen to play together as a unit at a pro-bowl level to a man, game in and game out and this team could dominate. I not sure if Davidson has the ability to motivate this group into that mind set or not, but that is exactly what needs to happen for the Vikings to be successful the remainder of the season.

    Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance
    from an established blog. Is it tough to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Many thanks
