Don't mean to pile on...

As we wait for an update on Adrian Peterson's knee, I felt compelled to update where the Vikings stand in the NFL in a few key categories.

The Vikings offense is 16th overall, primarily because of two atypical performances against the Chicago Bears and the San Diego Chargers. But the defense is now 29th and, once again, last against the pass.

After going 0 for 8 Sunday at Lambeau Field, the Vikings offense is 31st in third-down attempts.

Obviously, giving up 34 points is a bad day. I didn't feel that the defence played that badly though. I don't have the stats in front of me, but was the time of possession 2:1? It's hard to play D when one's on the field all day.

The other thing is, the Pack--to their credit--ran everything out of passing looks. They knew that the Vikes would have to play the pass, so they set up draws and shovels. The Vikes should have adjusted, but the D kept the team in the game for a long time.

Sean, where are the Vikings in yards per play as a defence?

I wouldn't call posting factual information "piling on". Vikes are the ones putting the stats up- you are just reporting them.
