Vikings offense improves

Although the Vikings didn't play this past weekend, the offense moved up four slots to No. 20.

If they could take a few more weeks off, they could crack the top 10.

Just joking.

Seriously, though, the Vikings' run offense is a respectable eighth in the NFL, but a disturbing 27th passing the ball. That has to change, if the Vikings are going to turn around their season.

And although they are running the ball well, the Vikings are 30th in the NFL in first downs, averaging just 4.13 yards per play. The Dallas Cowboys, meanwhile, average nearly eight yards on first down.

Finally, for those of you scoring at home, Tarvaris Jackson is the 33rd-rated quarterback in the NFL, while Kelly Holcomb is 26th.

Interestingly, Jackson is rated lower (40.0) than benched Bears quarterback Rex Grossman (45.2).
