Full story: TwinCities.com

Vikings receiver Bernard Berrian caught only two passes. But his 55-yarder on the game's opening play set up an Adrian Peterson touchdown run, and his 49-yarder resulted in a touchdown, helping the Vikings jump ...

It was still an ugly game where the defense gave up WAY too many yards. It will be interesting when the Williams boys are suspended for 4 games each.

This is nothing better than an 8-8 or 7-9 team.

Glad to see a win.
Is it just me or does anyone else think that AD has lost 4th gear?

First off I was referring to the "I quit" babies, secondly if you wanna be a dick and while we are on the subject of "blowing hard" why don't you. I complain too but I don't degrade my team and jump on another bandwagon. It's one thing to question management and it is another thing to have no respect for ones team. SKOL VIKES!

Just you, Justice. He had 3 carries of 20+ yards, including a 40 yarder where the tackler simply got the angle on him. He had an exceptional day.

Some thought we would overlook Houston while thinking ahead too much about the Green Bay game next week. We didn't do that and we got a win. Yes our defense gave up way too many yards on pass plays but the offense showed up today and the defense did just enough to get us the win. We will not get beat next. GO VIKES

It was nice to see all the new guys contributing, Berrian and Allen were GREAT, Madeui Williams was solid and made a huge play, and we even got the token Shiancoe touchdown.

Offense sputtered at times, defense started getting tired ( the way it looked to me, anyways) but we made the plays and won.

Also kinda funny, where are all the pecker fans at on here when their crappy team loses???

I'm going to give some credit to the coaching staff for coming out with an aggressive game plan on offense. This is how the KAO is supposed to look. Nice to see Jared Allen make a huge impact in the final two minutes. Even a Sidney Rice appearance. The coverage teams were perfect, and Jacoby Jones is a dangerous returner. Madieu steps in and gets a pick in the end zone....

All in a solid effort, top to bottom. They still are just crushed down the seams by TE's, but our LB corps is a work in progress without EJ. Just keep building momentum...

Galactic Observer is befuddled this week. Impressive win does not fit with his conspiracy theory that no wins = low fan support = approval to move to LA (or Vegas)(Los Angeles Conquistadors or Las Vegas Lounge Lizards).
Galactic Observer feels as if his head is about to explode -- win does NOT COMPUTE.
However, in his heart, Galactic Observer is thrilled. Hope springs eternal.

Hey I am a big Klink basher but I'll give him a pass this week. I liked the opening play. He did revert to form for a lot of the game but added just enough in to get the win. AD looked good. I was beginning to worry. Not about Peterson but the coaches ability to spring him, but they came through.

I do like the way that the defensive line played in the end. I have to admit I was fully expecting Houston to march down the field to tie the score but two sacks to end the game was beautiful!

Let's see how Klink does against the Pack.

To all those idiot fans booing the Vikings when they kneeled on the ball in the last 50 seconds when we were on the one yard line...let me ask you how you would have felt if the Vikings ran the ball and fumbled and Houston took it back for a TD...oh I know what it would be...you would be calling for the head of Childress right now for being that stupid. I don't mind critism of chilli...because he is a moron but i hate when we secure a win and our retarded fans boo our team because they played it smart. Morons.

There are times when you go for the kill and times when you respect your opponent. I'm no fan of Mr. Childress and his coaching, but I think he did the right thing. Our team has a win and a lot that we can build on for the next game!
