I Know Everyone’s All Excited About Peyton Manning….

…and it’s good to see him whup the living crap out of Pittsburgh, but I’d like to point out that the Vikings also won.

And how did they win?

Petersen had 84 yards and 2 TD’s, for thing.

Chris Ponder was solid, 20 for 27 and 270 yards passing, no picks, for another.

But more to the damn point, they toughed out an almost impossible situation. The Jaguars scored with a minute to go to bring the game to 21-20. Then they got the 2-point conversion.

At this point, most teams would have given up, eaten the win, and started talking to the press about all the things they did well that week.

Instead the Vikings rallied, and hit the long field goal to tie it up. Then they gave the ball to Petersen and he put them in range of another field goal. Which they got.

I’ve almost never seen the Vikings do that. They have a tendency to fold under pressure. This was a most refreshing tonic indeed.
