Minnesota Vikings 2015-2016 News and Updates
7/29/15 - The Minnesota Vikings started their training camp this last week. By all accounts, MVP Adrian Peterson is playing as well as ever. He certainly seems to be one of the Vikings' best players that may carry the team. The rest of the Vikings are a little rusty, but that is to be expected when returning to the field after the offseason. They still have time to prepare, but the season is quickly approaching. The first couple preseason games will begin in just about two weeks and the Vikings are lucky enough to start with a home game. They will be hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on August 15th. You can still secure your spot in the stands to be there when it all starts. Tickets are available for $4.
7/14/15 - As the NFL offseason comes to a close, each team is being looked at and analyzed to see who will be in their starting lineup. The Minnesota Vikings are no exception to the scrutiny. They have one of the most talented running backs in the league, Adrian Peterson. However, with his mishap off of the field in 2014, the Vikings struggled offensively without the star player. Peterson is going to be starting again this season, but the Vikings want to ensure they have a solid backup because each year they have needed one. Names that have been talked about for Peterson’s backup are McKinnon, Asiata, and possibly Banyard. Watch the Vikings live when they take on Tampa Bay on August 15. Tickets are still available starting at an affordable $4 a piece.
7/1/15 - With Training Camp just around the corner, the Minnesota Vikings still have some potential open spaces in their roster. Last month, they released Taylor Mays, which leaves them with only one solid safety: Harrison Smith. There are several candidates, including Robert Blanton, Antone Exum, Anthony Harris, and Andrew Sendejo. However, they may look to bring someone in, such as George Wilson and Bernard Pollard. One person likely to make the official roster is Brian Peters, who was once a safety but now plays in the linebacker position. With several injuries in the linebacker position and good work from Peters during the OTAs, he may just make the cut. While the coaches figure out the roster and prepare for Training Camp, fans can go ahead and get tickets for the 2015 season, with prices starting at $5.
6/16/15 - The Minnesota Vikings have made some changes to their roster this week. After only three months, the Vikings have released Taylor Mays, who may still have a chance to play in the NFL with the Bengals or Redskins. The Vikings may also consider the recently released Evan Mathis, but they most likely will pass due to the high cost of signing him. In other news, the anticipated new stadium which will be ready for the 2016 season now has a name: U.S. Bank Stadium. The team signed a 20-year exclusive naming rights agreement with U.S. Bank. The 2015 season will still take place in the University of Minnesota’s TCF Bank Stadium, and tickets for all games are now available. The home opener is against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on August 15, with prices starting at $4.
6/3/15 - An old face returned to the Minnesota Vikings during this week’s OTA voluntary practice: Adrian Peterson. He missed nine months, including the final 15 games of last season, due to child abuse charges. The relationship between him and the team has not been smooth since the allegations began, but Peterson was well received at the practice. In other news from the OTA, it looks as though the Vikings will have some decent speed with way receiver Charles Johnson and the rest of the receivers. The team may also be moving Brandon Fusco from right to left guard. The team also experienced its first indoor practice due to inclement weather. The first game for the Vikings will be the NFL Hall of Fame Game against the Steelers on August 9. Tickets are available, starting at $147.
5/19/15 - The Minnesota Vikings are getting ready to start their 55th season as a franchise under coach Mike Zimmer, who has only been with the Vikings for one season. They are looking to make it into post season play, unlike last year. One of the year’s biggest excitements for the organization is the acquisition of tight end MyCole Pruitt, who they picked up in the fifth round of the draft. Pruitt has definitely shown up during the Vikings mini-camps and already has a lot of offensive responsibility. He clocked in at 4.58 seconds for the 40-yard dash, a 38-inch vertical jump and has a lot of athletic characteristics that the Vikings need on the field. See them live on August 15 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Get tickets now starting at $3 a piece.
5/7/15 - With the 2015 NFL draft over, experts have weighed in on the team's picks and placed the Minnesota Vikings' at the top of the class. For example, Jamie Newberg from Scout.com gave the team the only A- for the draft due to the team filling their needs and picking players with a lot of potential. The Vikings picked up 10 players during the draft, choosing several players who can play well in multiple positions. They also picked up Trae Waynes, who will probably just stick to left cornerback. In addition to the rookie additions to the team, the Vikings have also recently exercised the fifth-year options on contracts for Matt Kalil and Harrison Smith. As the team works during the offseason, fans can already buy tickets for games, with prices as low as $6.
4/23/15 - New head coach Mike Zimmer will be tasked with turning around a Minnesota Vikings team that finished with a 7-9 record in 2014, as the squad looks to return to the playoffs for the first time losing to the Packers in the 2012 Wild Card Game. It won’t be an easy road at the beginning, as the Vikings open the upcoming season on the road in San Francisco where they will take on Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers. They’ll tangle with the Lions and Chargers in Weeks 3 and 4 respectively, both in Minnesota, before taking to the road for a clash with the Broncos at Mile High Stadium in Denver. Get your tickets for all of the live excitement of NFL action—2015 games are on sale now!
12/25/14 - The Minnesota Vikings host the Chicago Bears in the final game of the NFL regular playing season. While neither one has a chance to make the playoffs, fans understand the importance of the game between these two rivals. Since 1971, Chicago and Minnesota have been battling on the field, with the Vikings taking the first game. The home team generally wins, but not always. Many games between the two have been thrillers with wide point swings and overtime games. You never know what to expect when these two teams take the field together. Enjoy some great football when you come out to Sunday’s game. Tickets start at just $15, so it’s easy to get a group together to have a great afternoon without the phone or computer, just cheering for your favorite team over beer and your favorite stadium food.
12/17/14 - Following a heartbreaking 14-16 loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings are trying to regain their traction as they face the Miami Dolphins this week. The loss to the Lions was a close one at 14-16, but Minnesota seems to thrive on close games. If they find themselves in a similar situation with the Dolphins this week, they’re likely to come out on top. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has improved immensely since the beginning of the season, limiting his interceptions and increasing his touchdown passes, and tight end Kyle Rudolph has been racking up both the receiving yards and receptions. With the Ravens on a two-game winning streak, the Vikings will need to be on top of their game. See the match in person, with tickets still available starting at just $26.
12/12/14 - The third best team right now in the NFC North division is the Minnesota Vikings, sporting a 6-7 record. Their last game against the New York Jets went according to plan, and they ended up winning with a final score of 30-24 in overtime. In their clutch win, Teddy Bridgewater went on to throw for 309 yards and tacked on 2 touchdowns. He was also dynamic scrambling the ball, something he’s been very successful at doing this season. They will need him to continue efforts like this if the Vikings want to end their season on a good note. Their next game is against the Detroit Lions, which is a great game on paper. They will need to contain Mathew Stafford if they want to come away with the win. Tickets can be bought right now for $46.
12/3/14 - The Minnesota Vikings lost 24-21 to the Green Bay Packers on November 23, but bounced back to easily defeat the Carolina Panther this past Sunday, 31-13. Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater threw two touchdown passes and had no turnovers, and Minnesota’s special teams came up big with two blocked punts that were returned for touchdowns, the first time in 24 years one team had two in the same game. With four games to go, 5-7 Minnesota faces long odds in their quest to make the playoffs this season, but aren’t out of it yet. They host the New York Jets this Sunday, December 7, and are at home for the final game of the regular season on December 28, as the Chicago Bears come to town. Tickets start at an amazing $6-come out and support your Minnesota Vikings!
11/24/14 - Playing the Green Bay Packers at home this Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings are aiming for an eye-opening upset of the Green and Gold. Running back Jerick McKinnon has been the primary carrier for the Vikings, and with the recent addition of RB Ben Tate just this week, Minnesota is hoping to reconfigure their running game and put more points on the board when they take on Green Bay. Rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has exceeded expectations with his ability to limit turnovers and extend plays, and the Viking defense, with standouts such as safety Harrison Smith and outside linebacker Anthony Barr, should prove to be daunting foes for the Packers. Tickets are still available to witness the NFC North rivals meet this Sunday, with seats starting at $55.
11/20/14 - The Minnesota Vikings host the Green Bay Packers in the upcoming game. It’s a rematch between the teams in this current season, and the Vikings want to even up the score by taking the win. The Vikings-Packers rivalry is said to be one of the most intense rivalries in the NFL. You won’t want to miss this fierce game. The Vikings are fourth in the NFC North, at 4-6, and the Packers are tied with the Lions for 1st. Vikings’ linebacker Anthony Barr is one of the most impressive rookies this season, with 58 tackles to date, 4 sacks, and 3 fumble recoveries. He’s in line to earn the defensive rookie of the year title, if he keeps up with his current play. He’s the one to watch when you come out to the game.
11/12/14 - On Sunday, Nov 16, the Chicago Bears host the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings are ranked 3rd in the NFC Northern Division with a 4-5 record at the halfway point in the season. Anthony Barr, a linebacker for the Vikings has the potential to be a frontrunner for Defensive Rookie of the Year. The Vikings are number 2 in the league with 3.3 sacks per game. Minnesota is the favorite to win the game against the Bears, even though the Vikings haven’t won against them since 2007, when Adrian Peterson was a rookie with 224 yards on the ground. The Vikings are waiting to see if Peterson will return to their team. With Minnesota on a 2-game winning streak, they have the momentum to beat the Bears. Don’t wait to get the best tickets for this game!
11/5/14 - The Minnesota Vikings rank third in the NFC Northern Division as they go into their bye week. They’ve won their last two games; the most recent against the Washington Redskins. Teddy Bridgewater, the Vikings quarterback, completed 26 or 42 passes for 268 yards without a turnover. The Vikings take this week off, then on November 16, they face the Chicago Bears on Soldier Field in Chicago, IL. This is a long standing NFL rivalry dating back to 1961 when they first met and the Vikings won in their first season in the NFL. Over the years the home team generally has the advantage, so the Bears may take this game but their games often have a thriller aspect with crazy plays and score swings in the final moments.
10/28/14 - After sneaking past Tampa Bay in overtime last weekend, the Minnesota Vikings will square off against another struggling squad this weekend. However, Washington will come to town with a big win under their belt.
10/23/14 - They’ve lost three straight since the end of September, but the Minnesota Vikings remain optimistic after a last second loss on the road in Buffalo. The Vikes will take to the road again this weekend, traveling to one-win Tampa Bay.
10/10/14 - If Christian Ponder and the off-the-field controversy-stricken Minnesota Vikings were to review last week’s game in its entirety, they’d likely conclude that there’s really nowhere to go but up. And that’s exactly what the team intends to do when they take on Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions in front of a home crowd this weekend at Minneapolis TCF Stadium.
If the team has proved anything thus far this season, it’s that they shouldn’t be counted out, no matter how fierce an opponent they face. Last week’s loss was largely a fluke, and should be easily overlooked. The road to redemption starts this weekend on their home turf, and true Vikings fans are rejoicing that their favorite team is still far, far away from being out of this race.
9/16/14 - The Minnesota Vikings have managed a 1-1 record to start out the year, amid snowballing controversy off the field. Adrian Peterson was initially suspended indefinitely following indictment by a grand jury on charges of child abuse, but has now been reinstated and could very well suit up for the Vikes Week 3 matchup against the faltering New Orleans Saints. The readmission of the franchise’s start running back will surely have an immediate impact this Sunday when the team faces yet another elite gun-slinger, Drew Brees. Buy Minnesota Vikings tickets for a minimum of $69 add see how this team bounces back from last week’s home loss.
9/9/14 - The Minnesota Vikings embarrassed the St. Louis Rams on opening day, executing a 34-6 victory, thanks to their run game. Wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson became the first Viking to rush for 100 yards in a game that also started Adrian Peterson, so the future looks bright for this franchise. Minnesota is undefeated—including preseason games—does this mean Tom Brady must get used to losing? The Vikes will host the New England Patriots this Sunday, in one of the hottest match ups of Week 2. But Minnesota Vikings tickets for a minimum of $74 on 9/14 and see if Zimmer and Co. can continue their winning momentum!
9/3/14 - Are you ready to kick off the Mike Zimmer era of Minnesota Vikings football this Sunday? The Vikes renewed offense will be tested early when they face a formidable Rams defense on home turf in the Edward Jones Dome. With the Rams starting QB Sam Bradford out, however, Minnesota has a prime opportunity to work out summer kinks and start their season off on the right foot—err, cleat. Not to mention, Adrian Peterson sat out of all preseason games this year, so Sunday is the first time Minnesota will unleash his wrath on the gridiron. Buy your Minnesota Vikings tickets for a super affordable $12 minimum on 9/7.
8/27/14 - The Minnesota Vikings are one of four undefeated teams entering the fourth and final week of preseason. This is especially impressive, as all games thus far have yet to feature Adrian Peterson, who recently stated, "this is the offense I've been waiting for." Minnesota's most recent 30-12 road victory over Kansas City saw starting QB Matt Cassel throw for 153 yards, including a 59-yard TD pass to Cordarelle Patterson, before rookie backup Teddy Bridgewater finished with two TD passes to Allen Reisner. These equally admirable performances leave Vikes fans optimistic for the first time in a long time about their QB position. Bridgewater is slated to start in tomorrow’s game at Tennessee against the Titans, buy your Minnesota Vikings tickets now and see how the rookie fares on the road!
8/12/14 – The Minnesota Vikings debuted both quarterbacks in their preseason opener against the Oakland Raiders. Cassel started on the day, and played for one drive, before handing the ball off to Teddy Bridgewater. The rookie struggled in his first game outing, completing just 6 of 13 passes, and may have the opportunity to rebound in Weeks 3 or 4 of the preseason. For now, Matt Cassel is ahead in the race to start under center, and Zimmer will play him in the second exhibition game of the year when the Vikes square off against Arizona. Buy Minnesota Vikings tickets and watch your team at TCF Bank Stadium for as little as $9 this Saturday (Aug. 16).
8/5/14 – The Minnesota Vikings added veteran player Chris Cocker to the roster, who enters familiar territory with new coach Mike Zimmer. The experienced safety played under Zimmer while he was defensive coordinator in both Atlanta and Cincinnati and is expected to impart wisdom on younger contenders and aid the head coach in clarifying the 20-plus players on the hunt for a starting slot in the secondary. The front office cleared things up for Kyle Rudolph when the 2012 Pro Bowl MVP was awarded a five-year extension worth up to $40 million. Lock in Minnesota Vikings tickets for their Week 1 preseason game against Oakland and see if you can sort out the secondary yourself! Get into this Friday’s first exhibition game at TCF Bank Stadium for as little a $4.
7/29/14 – Now that training camp has opened for the Minnesota Vikings, players can focus on football instead of drama off the field. That’s not to say there isn’t a fare share of drama on the gridiron, of course. The Vikes are liable the only team with the possibility of starting a rookie under center, as opposed to last year, which saw Geno Smith, EJ Manuel, Mike Glennon rushed onto the field. Teddy Bridgewater and Matt Cassel are splitting reps during training camp, so the two quarterbacks have an equal shot at landing the 2014 first-string job in Minnesota. Will Bridgewater impress enough to be a Week 1 starter? Score Minnesota Vikings tickets now and find out yourself!
7/22/14 – The Minnesota Vikings have released findings from the Kluwe investigation, which reveals the homophobic remarks made by assistant coach Mike Priefer. The Vikings announced Friday that Priefer will be suspended for three regular season games in 2014, and that a donation of $100,000 will be made to LGBT organizations. The Minnesota Vikings will band together on the practice field to muster through this controversy and focus on an intense training camp. New head coach Mike Zimmer is known across the league for his tough no-fuss instruction. The team will begin this Friday and the first preseason game will be here before you know it. Lockdown Oakland Raiders at Minnesota Vikings tickets for Aug 8 and see all the hard work in training camp pay off on the gridiron.
7/15/14 – Other than Adrian Peterson's not-so-surprising top ranking in the NFL Top 100 for running backs, good news was in short supply for the Minnesota Vikings last week. You can buy Minnesota Vikings tickets to see AP storm the field, but another Vikes player is storming into the courtroom. Former Vikings punter Chris Kluwe intends on suing the team for withholding results of an investigation into his treatment after he expressed support for gay marriage. The team allegedly treated Kluwe unfairly, in particular, anti-gay comments from a special teams coach, which ultimately led to his release in 2012. The punter hopes part of his settlement would support LGBT Rights charities.
7/9/14 – When it comes to the Minnesota Vikings this offseason, the concern typically falls under center. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner recently praised his quarterback squad made up of Matt Cassel, Teddy Bridgewater and Christian Ponder, but what about questions on the other side of the ball—namely the porous secondary? The Vikings’ starting cornerbacks allowed enemy passer ratings in the plus-100s, but with the departure of Chris Cook, the doorway is left open for second year pass defender Xavier Rhodes to step up. Rhodes has monstrous potential to become the next shutdown corner; the only concern lies in his health, as he missed three games last season. Score Minnesota Vikings tickets and see how the team handles their very first preseason match of the year: pay a mere $4 to watch them take on the Oakland Raiders, Aug 8 at TCF Band Stadium.
7/1/14 – The Minnesota Vikings are getting ready to unleash their much anticipated youth task force in the upcoming season, and they’ll need those crucial training camp weeks to fine tune their skills. After two years of great drafts, keep an eye on Xavier Rhodes, Sharrif Floyd and Anthony Barr in their starting roles this year. Score Minnesota Vikings tickets and see if anyone will be able to stop this youthful and speedy squad on the gridiron this season!
6/24/14 – Throughout the offseason, first year Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer has repeated open competition is at the foundation of his principles, but he had a few more rules to relay the team at the close of offseason. As the squad breaks for summer, Zimmer expects his players to “be professionals," to realize “this isn’t a sixth-month-a-year job” and aptly prepare themselves for a grueling conditioning test upon returning. In exactly one month the Vikes will snap out of their summer haze and hit the field for Zimmer’s intense training camp. Get your Minnesota Vikings tickets now and see who used spent their summer time wisely!
6/17/14 – With summer just around the corner, the Minnesota Vikings kicked off their three-day mandatory minicamps. This is the teams’ final and most important set of practices before the close of offseason, so look forward to the quarterback picture clearing up with each day. Christian Ponder related that Teddy Bridgewater has been taking far more team reps than he has, and may well be the No. 2 signal caller behind Matt Cassel. Anthony Barr, the Vikings’ top selection, will finally get to practice with the veterans following his graduation from UCLA on Saturday, along with other late-starting rookies Scott Crichton and David Yankey. Get your Minnesota Vikings tickets now to see which contender will be under center come August!
6/10/14- Pay attention to preseason Minnesota Vikings fans, because this team has a ton of roster battles and open slots to fill. Chief among these is the quarterback position: rookie Teddy Bridgewater was undoubtedly the most impressive QB on the field during the last round of OTAs, but while some project him under center on Opening Day, it’s more plausible that one of two veterans will precede him. Matt Cassel and Christian Ponder, who have spent the majority of the offseason practicing with the offense, are at the top of the food chain heading into summer training camp, and Bridgewater says he's okay backing them up. Stay tuned and lock in your Minnesota Vikings tickets to see which of their three options will be under center during preseason!
6/3/14 - After hiring defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer as head coach, using their ninth overall pick on linebacker Antony Barr and spending the majority of free-agent money on defensive players, it's pretty clear which side of the ball the Minnesota Vikings are focusing on this offseason. Now that free agents signed after June 1 do not affect the draft pick formula, the Vikes can sign a veteran off market and solve the final piece in their defensive puzzle: Minnesota's troublesome secondary. See if these major defensive moves pay off with 2014 Minnesota Vikings tickets!
5/28/14 - Now that the Minnesota Vikings' full-team OTAs have begun, the quarterback battle can officially start! First round pick Teddy Bridgewater will take on veterans Matt Cassel and Christian Ponder during practice this spring for a shot under center. Ultimately the decision is up to celebrated offensive coordinator Norv Turner whether or not the rookie will serve as Cassel's successor this year. Get Minnesota Vikings tickets and see the chosen one debut in summer 2014!
5/19/14 - Prior to the start of rookie minicamp this weekend, the Minnesota Vikings got a jump-start on some prospects. The organization singed David Yankey, Kendall James and Jabari Price to four-year contracts. In the latest signing news, new Minnesota coach Mike Zimmer announced Illinois State's Mike Zimmer (no relation) will join the squad as linebacker; he'll be trained by linebacker coach Adam Zimmer (son of HC), as if things could get any more confusing. Minnesota got a closer look at their second pick, Teddy Bridgewater, during this past weekend's rookie minicamp. The QB prospect will compete with Matt Cassel and Christian Ponder for the starting position, though it is likely the youngster will need some maturity before being thrust into the NFL spotlight as first-stringer. Get your Minnesota Vikings tickets now to see if these offseason efforts come full circle!
5/13/14- He may have stumbled in the pre-draft process, but Teddy Bridgewater is arguably the most pro-ready QB in the 2014 Draft. The Minnesota Vikings selected the Louisville player as the final pick in the first round, at No. 32 overall. With the legendary Adrian Peterson running and adept receivers (Jennings, Patterson, Rudolph) on offense, many believe Bridgewater will outperform his stock. The Vikings also bolstered their defense by plucking athletic OLB Anthony Barr (No. 9 overall), DE Scott Crichton and secondary players Antone Exum and Kendall James in later rounds. The NFC North contenders were universally acclaimed for the 2014 NFL Draft haul, lock in Minnesota Vikings tickets today and see the revamped squad in person!
4/17/14 - The Minnesota Vikings will kick off their preseason at home, with two games at TCF Bank Stadium; after all, the Metrodome is officially kaput, with demolition of their former stadium being complete a month ahead of schedule. Week 1 brings the Oakland Raiders into town, while Week 2 will see a visit from the Arizona Cardinals. The second half of exhibition games will take place on the road, first with a trip to Kansas City, followed by a preseason finale at Tennessee. Though Matt Cassel and Christian Ponder are still in the mix, it's evident that the Vikings need to draft a quarterback come May 8. Stay tuned to see what new head coach Mike Zimmer has in store!
Despite moving to an outdoor stadium at TCF Bank Stadium, the NFL did not schedule Minnesota very many home games to start the season. In fact, four of their last six will be played at home in what we predict to be very cold temperatures. Remember Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomingdale? But, if you’re a die-hard, you’ll come through stuntin with Minnesota Vikings tickets to support your team! The most in-demand game of the season will be played Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers (avg. $236), the first of three consecutive homes games and the 109th contest in series history. The next most expensive game on the Minnesota Vikings schedule is the regular-season closer at home against the Bears, a rematch of the first NFL game played at TCF Bank Stadium following the collapse of the Metrodome roof in 2010. December 28 also marks the return of Jared Allen to Minnesota. Vikings tickets are fourth cheapest in the NFL averaging $181 (up 7% over last year).
2/12/14 – New offensive coordinator Norv Turner has big plans for Adrian Peterson after he returns from groin surgery. The RB missed two of the Vikings final three games last season due to the issue and a sprained foot, in addition to the Pro Bowl. Turner has also voiced the want for a young QB after Minnesota’s last place finish in the NFC North behind Matt Cassell, Christian Ponder, and Josh Freeman. In 2013, the Minnesota Vikings did not win a single road game. In 2014, the Vikings need to rack up some away wins, as winning at home will be a more of a challenge. Minnesota will play the next two seasons outdoors at the University of Minnesota’s TCF Bank Stadium while the team’s new stadium is built at the Metrodome site.
12/16/13 - The Minnesota Vikings put the Philadelphia Eagles' postseason hopes in serious jeopardy, crushing them 48-30 on Sunday. The Vikes nailed an impressive at-home victory, even with the absence of their top two tight ends, top three corners, and running backs Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart. Matt Cassel stepped up and made 3 touchdowns for 382 yards (the most by a Viking’s QB since the days of Brett Favre), while third stringer Matt Asiata rushed for 3 TDs (the first of his career) and Greg Jennings caught a career-high 11 passes. Minnesota Vikings tickets are just $15 to get in and see if they can topple the Cincinnati Bengals off the AFC North summit.
12/9/13 - The Minnesota Vikings fell to the Baltimore Ravens, 26-29, despite some nail-biting fourth quarter action on the snow-packed Sunday. Adrian Peterson, the NFL’s leading rusher and lifeline of the team, was carted off the field with a foot injury in the second quarter—but don’t worry Minnesota fans, the sidelined running back appears to have borne just a minor sprain. Next week, the Vikes are looking to set the Philadelphia Eagles tumbling, after yesterday's dramatic victory over Detroit gave them the NFC East lead. Minnesota Vikings tickets are just $24 to get into the Metrodome and away from the blistering cold in Week 15.
12/3/13- In a bench-gripping, back-and-forth game between NFC north foes, Chicago Bears and the Minnesota Vikings, the Vikes won it in overtime, 23-20. The Vikings maximized on Chicago’s weak rush defense (ranked last in the league), as Adrian Peterson carried the ball 35 times for a massive 211-yard day (that’s over 100 yards in 4 straight games), making him the third quickest RB in history to break 10,000 yards. The running back also got the team in position for Blair Walsh to kick a 34-yard field goal to seal the OT win. Minnesota Vikings tickets feature one of the lowest starting prices of the week, at $28 and $152 on average when they travel to Baltimore to face the Ravens.
11/26/13 - The Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers finished Sunday's hard-fought game with the only ending that would suffice: a draw. Christian Ponder and Cordarrelle Patterson were working in tight cohesion and the Vikings defense did what they could to stop Matt Flynn who sparked the Packers, but neither division opponent could put up more points than field goals in overtime, and the NFC North situation is left stickier than before. The Vikings have the opportunity to pull themselves up in the division this week, pitted against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, so don't miss this pivotal match-up in the North! Minnesota Vikings tickets are $48 to bundle up and get in.
11/19/13- The Minnesota Vikings could not keep up with the dominating Seattle Seahawks and were routed, 20-41, in CenturyLink Field. After Sunday afternoon, the Vikings hold the second worst record in the league. Christian Ponder did little to inspire in his start, and the Vikings may be compelled to put Josh Freeman or Matt Cassel back in position. Minnesota has the opportunity win next week, when they face the Green Bay Packers and Scott Tolzien, not Aaron Rodgers, on Sunday. Minnesota Vikings tickets are $176 on average.
11/12/13 - The Minnesota Vikings will come off their long weekend with the memory of Thursday’s inspired performance fresh on their minds. The Vikings defeated the Washington Redskins in Week 10, due to valorous performances by Christian Ponder (throwing 17 of 21 for 174 yards, 2 TDs and one interception) who left with a dislocated shoulder, and Adrian Peterson, who may be poised for a comeback after running 75 yards for 2 TDs. See what the boys can put up against the Seattle Seahawks in enemy territory in Week 11: Minnesota Viking tickets are a hot commodity, at $293 on average.
11/4/13 - The Minnesota Vikings were unable to overcome the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, losing 23-27. In a game that was closer than some anticipated, Tony Romo and Dwayne Harris stole the victory with 44 seconds left in the fourth quarter, for a game-winning touchdown drive. On the Vikings, Adrian Peterson was in beast mode, running for 140 yards on 25 carries, taking three defenders with him into the end zone, refusing to be stopped in the fourth quarter. Despite a valiant effort from Christian Ponder who threw for 236 yards, the Vikings now find themselves at 1-7, mimicking their worst start in franchise history. For Week 10, the Vikings will host the Washington Redskins hot off the heels of the victory over San Diego yesterday. Minnesota Vikings tickets are only $4 to get in, the cheapest price of the week!
10/28/13 - The Minnesota Vikings played a valiant game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, but ultimately fell 44-31, extending their losing record to 1-6. The Vikings’ Cordarrelle Patterson showed his worth as one of the best kickoff returners in the NFL, with a record setting 109-yard return for a touchdown—he is now tied with Percy Harvin for the most kickoff returns for a TD (2). Adrian Peterson attempted to pick up the offense, with his 8-yard touchdown run, but the defense was outmatched by Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson and Eddie Lacy. Coach Frazier has yet to name a starter for Minnesota’s upcoming game against the Dallas Cowboys, and at this point, the three options (Josh Freeman, Christian Ponder, Matt Cassel) present pretty grim pickins’. Minnesota Vikings tickets for this Sunday at AT&T Stadium are $236 on average.
10/22/13 - The Minnesota Vikings were unable to prolong Eli Manning’s winless streak, and fell to the New York Giants 7-23 on Monday Night Football. Leslie Frazer made the erroneous decision to start Josh Freeman, after being acquired just two weeks ago, and essentially threw him to the wolves last night without ample enough time to learn a new playbook. This resulted in a free for all, and a pitiful picking apart of Freeman, who was clearly uncomfortable and out of sync with his team members, overshooting receivers and constantly getting rammed into the ground by the New York’s pass rush, finishing with a meager 20 of 53 passes for 190 yards. Not even Adrian Peterson could pull Minnesota out of the wreckage, as he finished with a lowly atypical 28 yards rushing. The Vikings will head back home to face the Green Bay Packers next Sunday, hopefully with renewed vigor. Minnesota Vikings tickets at the Metrodome are one of the higher priced games of the week despite their poor MNF showing-everyone is clearly eager to see what they will do next- at $194 on average.
10/15/13 - Although the Minnesota Vikings were looking hopeful after their win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in England, the team has sustained another demoralizing loss, this time, to the Carolina Panthers (10-35). It is clear that the Vikings have some restructuring to do in the quarterback position: Matt Cassel will conceivably become a backup QB after Sunday’s costly 2-interception performance, and now former-starter Christian Ponder and newly acquired Josh Freeman will duke it out for the starting position. Adrian Peterson decided to play despite a heavy heart, just two days after the death of his two-year old son from an alleged beating, and the star running back was hounded by the Panthers, rushing just 62 yards, finishing with his second lowest number of the season. The Minnesota Vikings will have to reorganize themselves and gain some composure to insure an on-the-road victory in Week 7 over the eager New York Giants. Minnesota Vikings tickets in New York are $24 to get in and $177 on average.
10/8/13 - The Minnesota Vikings will be coming out of a bye week to host the Carolina Panthers next Sunday. The Vikings enjoyed their time off after attaining a must-win victory overseas against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but the staff has also made some moves in the line up: Minnesota has now signed quarterback Josh Freeman from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a one-year $3 million deal. He is now in the mix with starter Christian Ponder, nursing sidelining rib injury, and backup QB Matt Cassel, who despite the recent acquirement, may still start hot off the heels of his victory over the Steelers, completing 16 of 25 throws and zero interceptions. With three quarterbacks to choose from, the Minnesota Vikings are desperate to turn their season around as they prepare to face a struggling Cam Newton and company. Minnesota Vikings tickets against the Carolina Panthers are moderately priced, averaging $208 and $33 to get in.
10/1/13 - The New York Giants are enduring a blistering season, with their most recent battering sustained in Kansas City, losing 7-31 to the Chiefs. They are amongst the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the three worst teams in the NFL, with a minus-85 scoring differential. The New York Giants have to come out swinging if they want to climb up from the bottom of the barrel, and there may yet be life in the team, who is averaged 4.7 yards per carry against the Chiefs and running back Jamaal Charles and receivers Dwayne Bowe and Donnie Avery combined 53 yards in the first half. They will get their chance in Week 5 against worthy opponents the Philadelphia Eagles in New Jersey. Despite their worst start to the season in 25 years, New York Giants tickets are still a hot commodity, with the third highest average ticket price of Week 5 at $375.
9/24/13 - The Vikings are not having a great start to the 2013 season. Even with the best running back in the league, Adrian Peterson, problems with the defense giving up 409 yards, and the three game suspension of fullback Jerome Felton have proven difficult for Minnesota to overcome. Quarterback Christian Ponder, was booed numerous times at home on Sunday, and went 25 for 42 passes for 228 yards, and was sacked six times against the Cleveland Browns. At this point, the 0-3 Minnesota Vikings are desperate for a win, as they have consecutively lost games due to last-minute touchdowns. The opportunity to pick their season up will be across the pond in London against the also 0-3, Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Vikings hope to build on last season's campaign that saw them earn an NFL Playoffs berth, but lose in the Wild Card rounds to the rival Green Bay Packers. After impressively returning from a torn ACL and falling just short of the NFL single season rushing record last season, Adrian Peterson has vowed to come back stronger in 2013. Peterson is joined in the backfield by quarterback Christian Ponder, who hopes to make strides in his third professional season. The Vikings will also expect major contributions from free agent acquisition and longtime Packer receiver Greg Jennings, who will replace the traded Percy Harvin. Vikings tickets this season at the Metrodome are averaging $155, 20th highest in the league and 28% under league average.
The Vikings’ home opener comes in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns. The average Browns vs. Vikings tickets price is $118, second-lowest of any Vikings home game this season, ahead of the Carolina Panthers in Week 6 at $117. The most expensive game at the Metrodome on the Minnesota Vikings schedule is the Week 8 showdown with the Packers, with an average Packers vs. Vikings tickets price of $219. Their game a month later in Week 12 at Lambeau Field in Green Bay is 62% more expensive. The Vikings also take a trip across the pond this season to play the Pittsburgh Steelers in London, England. The Week 4 game at Wembley stadium has an average price of $393.
