The Vikings lead the series against the Falcons 16-11, including the playoffs, but have lost 4 out of the last 6. The last victory came on September 9, 2007 at the Metrodome. The 24-3 win came on the back of Adrian Peterson's 19 carries for 103 yds and 1 reception from Tarvaris Jackson (for 60 yds) that went for almost 37% of the yards that Tarvaris threw all day. The scoring was led off by the defense though, with a 54-yd INT return from Kevin Williams. It was also finished off by the defense when Antoine Winfield picked off Falcons' QB Joey Harrington and returned it 14 yds for a TD.

Please keep all discussion about the game here.

A lot of people just tend to bock Joey Harrington from their memory altogether

Excited for Teddy to get the start.

Excited for Rhodes to match-up with Julio/Roddy

Excited for our defense to be tested....again

I'm optimistic for this game.

On April 9, 2007, Harrington agreed to a two-year, $6 million contract with the Atlanta Falcons to compete with D. J. Shockley and Chris Redman to back up Michael Vick.

Harrington was elevated to starting QB after the suspension of Vick for the 2007 NFL season. Harrington performed well in the preseason, but after going 0-2, Atlanta signed former Jacksonville starting quarterback Byron Leftwich as a possible replacement for Harrington.

Hageman's return.

Ponder going to be active.

I kinda like our chances in Teddy's first start.

Like our chances of going 2-2.
Limited footage for ATL.
Max practice reps for TB.
Hope they take the training wheels off this time & let the ball fly.

At the end of the day, both teams leave the stadium at 2-2.

This one bodes wel for the Vikes D and could be a big day for the O. On offense, the RB group will be more settled. Even if Rudolph's out, I think Ellison and the new guy Wink handle that responsibility. The WRs should have a good day.

On defense, the deep drop passing game allows a bit more time for pressure to melt Marty Ice. Yes, our DBs will have their hands full, but they'll do a good job on the Falcons.

Vikes 27 - Falcons 20

Hopefully playing outdoors and on the road messes Matt Ryan up. He struggled at Cinci but has been amazing at home. If Zimmer brings the heat and hits Ryan to get him out of rhythm we might have a chance.

I have faith that Teddy will protect the ball and make some plays with his feet to keep drives alive. As long as the OL can tighten up a bit and the running game can offer some support the offense should at least be able to put some drives together.

I imagine we will see a similar outcome as the Saints game yesterday.

Defense seems turned around. As long as Teddy can be efficient with ball, pretty confident, at home, the Vikings can get a W... a Teddy B W.

The defense has been, for the most part, great this season. If we can get the offense going, I think we have a shot.

I don't normally root for the Vikes, but you will have my cheers this Sunday. And for the record, I think Bridgewater looks like he has the poise of a true NFL QB. I think he will develop very well. Good decision making under pressure and knows when to scramble and when to go down. He will last a while and if he develops along the lines of the very small sample size we have seen, you guys may have something very nice on your hands. Good luck Sunday and the rest of the season, guys.

No RB. No OL. No TE......man, so much for setting Teddy up for success by surrounding him with great talent.

I would go no huddle, lots of WRs......the OL isn't blocking well when guys are all over the line. Open it up, and throw fast passes. Since I doubt that will happen, I'm guessing the Vikes score about 16 or 17, and lose.
