The season has started, but the charity does not

While our focus when it comes to the Minnesota Vikings is obviously what happens on the field, we do like to highlight some of the things that the players for our favorite team (as well as the team themselves) do for the Twin Cities community. We do more of that during the offseason, but the fact that the games have started on the field doesn’t mean that the good works stop off of...

But that could quickly change

Coming out of their bye week, the Minnesota Vikings are facing a brutal gauntlet of a schedule over their next five games. That will start on Halloween night at U.S. Bank Stadium when the purple play host to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football on NBC.

According to DraftKings, the Vikings are currently sitting as a 2.5-point underdog to the Cowboys, who are also on their bye this week. However, with both of these...

Report: Ameer Abdullah to sign with Carolina Panthers

He won’t be back after all, it appears

For the past couple of seasons, running back Ameer Abdullah has provided the Minnesota Vikings with solid play as both a kickoff returner and a running back. With the team activating rookie Kene Nwangwu on Tuesday and releasing him to make room, it appears that the veteran will be taking his services elsewhere.

The #Panthers are expected to sign Abdullah, source said. https://t.co/HTgPwP41q0

Peak of the week!

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

Alright, we’re halfway through this work week. We have no football to look forward to this week, as the Vikings are heading into their bye week. Anyone have anything special planned? I think kiddo and I are going to take advantage of the free time, and try to squeeze in one more night of camping and fishing. We normally don’t have that option this late in the year, but the weather is still fairly mild up here,...

The fourth-rounder is back

The rookie class for the Minnesota Vikings hasn’t contributed a whole lot thus far in 2021, but that appears to be changing with left tackle Christian Darrisaw having finally taken his place in the starting lineup. On Tuesday, the team made a move that could help the rookie class to have an even bigger impact.

The Vikings have officially designated running back Kene Nwangwu from injured reserve. In order to make room for...

Norse Code Podcast Episode 394: It Sucks Watching This Team Sometimes

Arif and James are back to discuss the win over the Panthers. Was Sam Darnold bad or did the defense step it up? Why was the game so close? Why isn’t Zimmer upset about the missed kicks? Are these wins sustainable? And who should you be upset with despite the fact that the Vikings are 3-3?  Also which Nick Cage character should Kirk Cousins dress up as for Halloween? We will be doing a live recording of our podcast at Ireland’s Four Courts pub in Arlington, VA on...

Nincompoop of the Week: Week 6 (Panthers)

who you think is a nincompoop this week. This is supposed to be fun, relax and enjoy.

Carolina Panthers WRs - Why are they nincompoops? I think there were at least 7 or 8 drops be the receiving corps for the Panthers. It is likely the reason the Vikings even won the game at all. It is hard to get into a rhythm on offense if you can’t complete a basic pass. Roby Anderson and DJ Moore did not do Sam Darnold any favors. Those two combined for 8...

A win is a win and I will take it every Sunday. This team does not look good at all, but they found a way to win. We’ll see if they’re good enough coming out of the bye. There is a harsh schedule ahead and the team will need to play better to beat good teams. I don’t think the Panthers, Seahawks or Lions are good.
