Wooo whooo the wins are back!

The Vikings won this past Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals ending their four-game losing streak and giving fans something extra to be thankful for this year.

This week the Vikings are playing the Lions on Thanksgiving. The Vikings have already played, and lost, against the Lions so this game is a chance at redemption. During past Thanksgiving games, the Vikings have done a great job winning so let us all hope they will continue to win on this great day.

Thankful for a Minnesota Vikings Win

1. Happy early Thanksgiving, friends.

Thanksgiving came a little early for the Minnesota Vikings and their fans. Following Sunday’s roller coaster of a victory over the Arizona Cardinals, the thought of Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday night got that much more delicious.

While I’m thankful for the win — six weeks in the making — I’m not ready to sit down at the dinner table just yet. Sure, the Vikings are 6-4 and tied for first place in the NFC North, but their co-champions are gearing up for what’s likely the team’s most significant game of the season.

Thursday morning, as we prep the turkey, loosen the sweatpants and enjoy the company of our loved ones, the Detroit Lions will try to sweep the Vikings for the second time in three years. Minnesota enters Week 12 having skirted a five-game losing streak, while the Lions are enjoying their own two-game series of wins.

As Vikings fans, we deserve to savor yesterday’s “W.” The defense came back to life with four sacks, Sam Bradford played another relatively clean game, and Mike Zimmer’s crew put together an impressive display of  “team football.”

This is only the appetizer of what could be a satisfying full-course meal on Thursday.

And on a side note, since it is that time of the year, thank you. Thank you for being such loyal readers, followers, and fans of this crazy, wonderful team. You make writing here a joy, and I’m thankful to call Vikings Territory home.

Vikings take on Cardinals

The Minnesota Vikings are at full strength as they host the Arizona Cardinals in Week 10. For a team that’s dealt with major injuries from the very beginning of 2016, the clean bill of health couldn’t come at a better time.

Facing the prospects of a five-game losing streak, it’s imperative the Vikings win this afternoon and improve their playoff chances. That may be easier than expected, as the Cardinals are without a few of their impact players.

The Vikings’ full list of inactive players includes:

  • QB Taylor Heinicke
  • WR Jarius Wright
  • LB Edmond Robinson
  • G Zac Kerin
  • T Rashod Hill
  • DT Sharrif Floyd
  • TE David Morgan
