The Vikings announced Monday that cornerback Jabari Price has been reinstated onto the 53-man active roster. Price was serving a two-game suspension, and the Vikings held an open place for him during the first two weeks of the season.

Reporters interviewed Price in the locker room Monday morning, and he said the following:

“It feels good to be back. The last couple weeks have been really tough for me watching at home, watching the games on television and watching us come up short against San Fran. I didn’t think it was going to be difficult but it hurts.”

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings bothered the win column score keeper Sunday with an impressive 26-16 outlasting of the Detroit Lions Sunday afternoon at The Bank. Adrian “RB1” Peterson made his TCF Bank Stadium debut in a refreshing fashion, helping carry the Purple to a much needed win. We discuss the game and try not to gloat too much about Justin Trattou….

After an abysmal start to the season against San Francisco Week 1, the Vikings will play their home opener Sunday against the division rival Detroit Lions. In 2014, Minnesota’s offense ranked No. 20 and Detroit’s defense ranked No. 3 in the NFL.

According to Vikings.com, Minnesota is 38-14-1 (.726) at home all-time against the Lions, which is the best home winning percentage against any NFC North team.

Both teams suffered a loss in Week 1 and will be hungry to notch that first game for the “W” column; let’s take a look at how they will match up this weekend.

Zimmer’s got his “on to Detroit” shoes on as the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings (0-1) open the home season at The Bank Sunday vs the Detroit Lions (0-1). It’s as close as you can get to a must win in a Week 2 game as the Purple try to bounce back from their non-appearance last Monday in San Francisco and the Lions lick their wounds from blowing a 21-3 2nd quarter lead in San Diego.

The winner will have their season back on track. The loser’s fan base will be ready to light cars on fire. They could also tie, but whatevs.

For the Lions perspective, we got Michael Grey (@TheMichaelGrey) of 107.3 WBBL Grand Rapids in the house to talk about the mehness of Matt Stafford, how rumors of Megatron’s demise are greatly exaggerated, and how Detroit could build a winning team if they simply RAN THE DAMN BALL. (Sound familiar?) He also has a Stone Cold Hot Take that will make some Vikings fans vomit if it comes to fruition.

Vikings wise, we have our man Arif Hasan (@ArifHasanNFL) of Vikings Journal/Daily Norseman back in the hizzy to rap about how the Vikings rebound from that cratering by the Bay and how we match up against a formidable Lions squad Week 2.
