The Vikings offense is based on a strong pass game with a powerful ground game. They’ve always been that way but didn’t have the quarterback to take them deep into the playoffs. Now with QB Brett Favre at helm the Vikings have what it takes. They let Favre do what he does best and their receiving core is making it happen. Their offense is currently ranked fifth best in the league and they put up the second most points per-game (29.4ppg). Bret Favre has thrown for 4,202 yards with 33 TD's and seven interceptions for a 107 passer rating. Their eighth ranked pass game, led by WR Sidney Rice’s 1,312 yards receiving and eight TD’s, is a big threat along with their other receivers. WR’s Percy Harvin, Bernard Berrian and TE Visanthe Shiancoe can catch anything Favre throws at him, if they can’t get open Favre throws to a space they can get too. Between the Vikings top four receivers they have a combined 29 TD’s, with TE Visanthe Shiancoe the leader at 11 TD’s. Their 12th ranked running game, led by RB Adrian Peterson’s 1,389 yards and 18 TD’s, is moving the chains at a rapid rate. He is one of the most versatile backs in the league who is as talented at finding holes as he is catching the ball, he had 439 yards receiving during the regular season. Despite losing three of their last five, their last regular season game win over the NY Giants showed they have what it takes.
On defense they struggle on the road but excel at home. Their defense is currently ranked the sixth best in the league and they allow the 10th least amount of points per-game (19.5). They aren’t the strongest against the pass and their secondary is weak, a potential problem considering all of the opponents in the NFC can design favorable matchups, especially if targeting those where weak safeties have to cover. They are currently ranked 19th against the pass, but they have one of the top defenders in the league with DE Jared Allen’s 13.5 sacks and five forced fumbles. They also have Kevin William and Pat Williams, when they are both in the game at the same time, the defense clicks. They have the second best rush defense in the league that allows a low 89 yards rushing a game and that’ll go along way a shutting down their opponent’s ground game.
The Vikings have the second best field goal maker in the league, kicker Ryan Longwell has made 26 of 28 field goals adding an extra 84 points for the Vikings. Having a reliable kicker will take you along way in the playoffs.
