Case... keep'em? He made some pretty incredible throws on key downs and avoided sacks.

Diggs with a huge 3rd down conversion with the stretch.

Rudolph big in the red zone.

We have a 1,000 yard WR!

Defense was softer than normal but came up big when needed. Especially Everson.

Did we escape without any major injuries?

Rhodes, Hill had rough games.

When a team is up, and the coaching staff decides to "not" go for the throat, it's dangerous.

Conservative football in the second half, and especially in the 4th, can cost you a game.

Luckily it did not happen this time.

Go Vikes...Hey OC, how about going for a couple more touchdowns next time instead of simply running up the middle over and over trying to avoid a loss. I'd much rather go for a resounding win.

Wow. Really didn't enjoy that second half. But they got through it - 9-2 gotta love it.

Am I the only one who is expecting our kicker to miss every single time? Can you imagine him kicking for a game winner in post season? I don't think I could handle it.

To be fair, one of the misses was because of the hold. However, I do get a lot more nervous when they have to settle for a kick.
Did their red zone TD streak get snapped?

Wow! What a game.

Look guys, I know we almost blew a big lead. But at least we BUILT a big lead. We put up more than 400 yards of total offense and held yet another opponent to less than 300. And we won.

Case Keenum was simply magnificent, especially in the first half. That second TD to Rudolph was as good a throw as you'll see in the NFL this year. Guy about to bury him, split-second decision, ball right on the money. He again played turnover-free football and threw for nearly 300 yards.

Adam Thielen did what we've come to expect him to do. Came up with big catches, caught more than 5, and went over 1,000 yards. What a story.

Stefon Diggs came up huge in the second half. He had a number of plays on third down to keep the clock running.

I think the Lions got a lot of breaks with the zebras today. The last TD drive they had was pretty much all on the refs, and most of the calls were garbage. Oh well. It happens.

It was obvious that both teams were feeling the effects of playing an early game four days after their last game. There were a lot of missed tackles.

Our kicking team ... wow, that was horrific. Extra points have been an adventure, but now field goals are. Once again, we left points on the board, making it 10 points in two games. Make all kicks today, and we win by 11.

Guys, I know it wasn't pretty, but it was a tough road game on a Thursday morning. Bottom line is that we're 9-2. We've won 7 straight. We're 3 up in the division with 5 to play. We're the No. 2 seed in the NFC, and Philly had better not let up. We've also got 10 days to get ready for Carolina. These next two weeks are huge. We said there were 5 games that were going to define our season. Three down, two to go.

Nice win. Maybe this team is a little different they can seem to ever come some adversity where as other teams in the past would get down. After 40'years of watching I'm really excited

I think a youtube commentator on the Vikings highlight videos sums up the game best for me.

:point: That is hilarious. 9-2 feels pretty good in spite of (or perhaps because we overcame) the officiating.

The Vikings are still afterthoughts too. CBS barely talked about them and then it turned into talking about Detroit. Keep it that way.

Vikings normally crumble and lose a game like this. This team has the chance to be special.

9-2. Last time they had a record like this going into december was 1998 I believe.

Some quick thoughts.

Kendricks struggled today.
Griffen was a monster.
Diggs, Thielen, and Rudolph had outstanding games
Keenum. Can't say enough about him. He was carrying this team in the first half. Struggled a bit in the 2nd half but made the plays that were needed to win.
Rhodes struggled today but made up for it on the last play.
Quiggly. ugh. Bad punt, bad hold.
Murray much better than Mckinnon today. Glad we have both right now.

Not going to bring up the officiating. I let it all out in the gameday thread.

Pat Shurmur-Cant say enough about him. He has taken the plays meant for Sam, and made them work for Case. We have a good offense and the play calling has been great.

The Refs-I have never seen the bias I did today with the Vikes. They should be investigated. It was almost laughable how one sided the refs were, and still, the Lions couldnt win, But the refs tried everything they could to help them win. I wonder if Zimmer will bring this up with them during the long week.

The D got it done, but they didnt look that good. A lot of big names didnt have a very good day.

Case is really good, I hope he can keep it up. He certainly isnt showing any signs of slowing down. I think the QB controversy is over. Its Case's job to keep. Maybe Teddys time will come, who knows. But maybe next year they can compete for it. Case is making some big passes, and is on target. Much more then he was at the begging of the year.

ST-it sucks. Forbath is no better then Walsh. He is a head case. We waited way to long to dump Walsh, I hope that doesnt happen with Forbath. I dont like Quigly either.

We are 9-2. I didnt even think we would win 9 games at the start of the year. Things really seem to be clicking.

I think they were 11-1 in 2009. But it is definitely not a frequent for the Vikings.

Too many years of watching Viking football has me getting very nervous.

I had the same thought. If Rodgers is out for three more games, how do you see Hundley getting them any better than 1-2 in those games, and 6-7 by the time Rodgers comes back. Best they could do is 9-7 in that scenario, and it sure looks like it'll take 10 wins to make the playoffs in the NFC. Now, the AFC might have an 8-8 team, but it looks like it will take 9 wins there too.

10-1 in 2009. They lost 3 games in December. Very important for the Vikings to keep the momentum in December, especially with how the Eagles and Saints are doing.

Joe Buck has hated the Viking since 1998 when Randy Moss fake mooned Lambeau Field in a TD celebration.

In any case I feel like we should be celebrating a hard fought victory but I am left feeling angry with the refs and the crappy announcers who pretend like the Vikings are a subpar team.
