Oh what a time it is to be a Vikings fan. Coming off one of the most exciting wins in recent memory vs. the Packers, the team has been bitten by the injury bug.

Following the announcements of losing both Adrian Peterson and Matt Kalil for the season, head coach Mike Zimmer announced Thursday that defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd had surgery on his left knee today.

The Vikings have started hot enough to keep hope alive, but an NFL team’s postseason hopes are contingent on their injury report, so Vikings fans have had plenty to fret about since that fateful practice that led to Teddy Bridgewater missing the entire season.

The injuries are piling up, with left tackle Matt Kalil and running back Adrian Peterson the latest to create headlines and cause concern, but the 2-0 Vikings still present reasons for optimism to their loyal fans.

Today, I’m taking you around the web to visit all of our friends and see what is being written about this team, via our weekly “Links of the Week” tradition.

Sunday night could not have gone any better for the Minnesota Vikings during their win over the hated Green Bay Packers. The Vikings played their very first regular season game in front of a record crowd of 66,813 screaming Minnesota fans.

But exactly how loud was it Sunday? How did it compare to the Vikings’ old home at the Metrodome? Luckily, a few people who attended Minnesota’s Week 2 victory have taken some time to provide answers to those questions and much more about their experience last weekend.

Hey! It is Vikings Territory‘s birthday! Which birthday exactly?

We’re Five!

That’s right, folks. After about a five minute strategy session via Skype, and about three dollars worth of investment, and about three minutes worth of preparation, Brett Anderson and I flipped on the switch (actually, it was just him, he doesn’t let me touch the switches) that turned the lights on here at VT half a decade ago.

It has been a wild ride, with plenty of successes and failures along the way, but we are both proud of what we have created here… and where it is headed.

We started off celebrating the rare times when literally dozens of people were on the site at once. And now, today, we are privileged enough to celebrate the days when tens of thousands of people have graced us with their presence in a single day.

There have been a lot of things that we’ve accomplished, ones we could go on for hours about with pride and excitement, but this post was created with something more important in mind than patting ourselves on the back.
