    One year removed from blowing out his ACL and MCL. How ridiculous is that?

    Imagine being a Bears fan and being forced to hope the Packers win...

    Eric Dickerson's NFL single-season rushing record with 2,105 yards was 28 years ago.

    One quarter, 61 yards to go... can he do it?

    Will he get the chance?

    Because the Vikes MUST win this game and because the running game is working, probably so as long as they are barely winning. A strong running game is critical in that situation as long as it can move the chains and burn clock. If they were trailing or winning big, you'd have less need to lean on him. But this is one case where pushing for a record makes sense for the team's playoff hopes as well.

    AP should win the MVP but he won't because of Manning.

    By the way, Christian Ponder is looking good. I'd take him over Schaub right now.

    Tie game, 2:54 left.

    AP still has a chance if we get OT.

    It's what late December football ought to be (except that it's in a dome and on artificial turf). This has all the feel of a playoff game, and for the Vikings, it effectively is.

    47 to touch, but if they play for a FG it's a no go.

    2071.

    Minn K Walsh is perfect from 50+ yards.

    AP probably sealed a playoff berth with a big run for 26. I'm sure he'll take that over the record.
