Fantasy Index Weekly: Championship Preview: Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings have the momentum of a dramatic win, and the excitement of potentially being the first team to play a Super Bowl in its home stadium. But unlikely they'll have a big game offensively. Minnesota had the league's best defense (yards and points) during the regular season, but Philadelphia's was nearly as good (4th in both categories). The Eagles were shockingly good at home, too, allowing only 11 TDs in eight games. Just one last week, and that was set up by a special teams gaffe.   more »

Factoid: Sam Bradford

The Vikings have slipped to 6-5 after a 5-0 start, and Sam Bradford thinks the problem is the offense needs more explosive plays. He's right, and certainly the team's injury-gutted offensive line is part of the problem. But so too is the quarterback the team gave up a first-round pick for.   more »
