Post THIS DAY IN VIKING HISTORY
Here are the answers to the last set of questions. Thank you for reading and responding!
Jeff Brady
DeWayne Washington
Ahmad Rashad
Gary Anderson
Ted Brown

September 6, 1992
Vikings 23 at Packers 20 (OT)
Dennis Green wins in his debut as the Vikings get a 45-run to set up the winning field goal from a 2nd year player from Clemson. He had been just a 9th round draft pick but he went on to gain 8,000 yards in a long career with Minnesota and Washington. Can you name him?

September 7, 1980
Vikings 24 Falcons 3
Minnesota gets the winning field goal with 29 seconds left from the last of the team's old-fashioned straight ahead kickers. He was a St. Paul native and a graduate of White Bear Lake High. Can you name him?

September 8, 1985
Vikings 28 49ers 21
With the score tied at 21-21, Minnesota recovers its 5th fumble to set up the winning score with 3 minutes left. It's the 3rd lost fumble of the game by a former UCLA Rose Bowl hero who had 6,000 yards rushing in a long career with the Rams and 49ers. Can you name him?
The climactic fumble is recovered by a #1 draft pick out of USC who was a brilliant, 6-time Pro Bowl safety with the Vikings. His 37 interceptions place him at #4 on the all-time Viking list. Can you name him?

September 9, 2007
Vikings 24 Falcons 3
The Vikings return 2 interceptions for scores, victimizing a quarterback who had been a big star at Oregon but a disappointment with the Lions. His tenure in Atlanta was similarly uninspired. Can you name him?
The second pick six was executed by a cornerback from Ohio State who came to Minnesota from Buffalo. His 21 interceptions in 9 Viking seasons put him at #10 on the team's all-time list. Can you name him?

September 10, 1989
Vkings 38 Oilers 7
Minnesota gets 2 short scoring plunges from a fullback who had been an 8th round pick out of Washington. He had a career high 588 yards rushing yards in 1989 but his NFL career was cut short due to injuries after the 1991 season. Can you name him?
