Vikings QB Bradford to miss second straight game

Killer D, not Bs, sparking Steelers so far Vikings coach doesn't think Bradford's injury is long-term
Connie Andrews | 23 September, 2017, 02:23

Bradford said Wednesday that he hurt his left knee on a non-contact play against the Saints and that it really bothered him when he woke up the next day.

Keenum has more mobility than Bradford, but that's about the only upside. Bradford didn't play in last Sunday's loss to the Steelers, and now won't take the field against the Bucs. The quarterback is said to be dealing with a bone bruise in his left knee, and those can be extremely painful. It's one game. But we're not going to throw in the towel. Minnesota gave up 113 free yards on 11 penalties. While that's a topic for a different article, Boone's absence could very well end up being the key to the Vikings making the playoffs or not and his release really is becoming both more and more of an issue and also a big headscratcher (to the point that there's actual brain on my fingers).

If you needed a clearer reason for why the Vikings will not want to pay for his contract next year and will preserve Teddy Bridgewater to make sure they don;'t have to, you'll likely get it as Bradford is lucky to get out of a chair intact.

TAKING THEIR SHOTS: The Steelers threw deep repeatedly against the Vikings, as they had meant to all along. It didn't matter who you were, where you came from, what you did, everybody was important to him. In 2011, with this problem in mind, ESPN invented a statistic called QBR. The Vikings secondary actually played Brown well last week, though they let Martavis Bryant torch them with 91 yards and a score on just three catches.

In more simple terms: A touchdown in the final moments is worth more than one scored while down 30 points.

"It's hard to compare years", Keenum said.

What should stand out is that the former Houston University star was rarely terrific but also rarely awful.

This is why I tell you, Vikings fans, PANIC NOW!

For the Steelers to put themselves in position to be the top AFC seed, they will have to avoid road losses against bad teams that have defined recent seasons.

Conceptually, the Bucs' defense is similar to what Keenum remembers. He completed 60 percent of his passes and posted a passer rating of 76.5.

Obviously, the blockers on the Vikings' return unit are quite skilled as well, because RB Jerick McKinnon has stepped in as the new return man and is already fifth in the National Football League in that category, with an average of 26.7 yards per runback.

Last week, Cook disappeared from the Vikings offense in the first half but rushed for 61 of his 64 yards after intermission. "He always believed in himself and his talent, and it shows in the NFL". The other options for players' status are questionable, doubtful or out.
