Going into week 14, the Ravens play the Minnesota Vikings at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday. They will be playing the last of three straight at home games. Although the Vikings are not contenders, they are a force to be reckoned with. Think of it as the meeting of opposites. The Vikings have the six best running game and the Ravens have the six best running defense in the league.
All the talk has been about the Vikings running back Adrian Peterson. He must be stopped. This All-pro running back has over 1,200 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns this season! He must be stopped!
The Vikings will probably try to take control of the running game early to give Peterson the advantage. Hopefully, the Ravens defense can put a stop to that. Their defense ranks last in the NFL with 30.5. Although our offense has greatly improved with the last two home games, our offensive line needs a little work. Let’s hope this offense comes prepared.
Harbaugh said Peterson is a threat to score every time he touches the ball. Suggs said the Ravens are looking forward to the challenge of going up against the NFL’s best back.
“What’s his nickname? ‘All Day?’” Suggs said. “The man runs hard all day. It’s going to be interesting. It’s definitely a challenge for us.”
