Game 8

at
When: 1:00 PM EST October 26th
Where: Raymond James Stadium (Tampa, FL)
TV/Radio: Fox (TV), KFAN 100.3 (Radio)

Coverage Map: http://506sports.com/nfl.php?yr=2014&wk=8

Notable Injuries:

Vikings - Probable: C John Sullivan (concussion), TE Chase Ford (foot), DE Corey Wootton (back), DT Sharrif Floyd (ankle), CB Jabari Price (hamstring), S Harrison Smith (ankle), Questionable: G Vladiimir Ducasse (knee), CB Josh Robinson (ankle), S Antone Exum (ankle), Doubtful: LB Gerald Hodges (hamstring), Out: TE Kyle Rudolph (abdomen)
Buccaneers - Probable: C Johnthan Banks (neck), Questionable: QB Josh McCown (thumb), WR Vincent Jackson (rib), T Anthony Collins (knee), LB Jonathan Casillas (hamstring), S Dashon Goldson (ankle), S Keith Tandy (hamstring), Doubtful: None, Out: LB Brandon Magee (knee)

The Vikings are 31-22 against their former NFC Central foes, the Buccaneers. They've been having trouble with them lately however, having lost 6 in a row and 8 out of the last 10 dating back to 1999. The last time the Vikings won a Week 8 game in Tampa Bay was on October 23rd, 1988. Vikings' QB Wade Wilson was 22-30 for 335 yds and 3 TDs. The Air Conditioner Anthony Carter also had a big day, catching 6 passes from WW for 123 yds and 1 of those TDs. The running game was pretty split with 5 backs (Rick Fenney, Alfred Anderson, DJ Dozier, Darrin Nelson, and Allen Rice) for the Vikings rushing for a combined 106 yds. On a side note, I may actually remember this game as I think multiple Vikings' backs got injured that game. The defense was a star too with 6 picks (2 from Joey Browner and 1 each from Brad Edwards, Wymon Henderson, Ike Holt and Carl Lee). Also, it should be noted that the beleaguered K Chuck Nelson got 7 FGs on this day that the Vikings won 49-20.

Please keep all discussion about the game here.

The offense needs to figure it out. The defense is playing very well right now, and they shouldn't have even been in the situation they were in against Buffalo.

But until Norv Turner shows me that he can put together a decent gameplan. I'll have my reservations.

I have no doubt that the defense will hold Tampa Bay under 20 points, but I have no faith that our offense will score more.

Road game following a very tough loss, against a team coming off a bye week.

Gut check time.

Eh?

This season I don't we can have any more "must win" games. Especially if any of the starting OL besides Fusco are out again. Let's face it, with Peterson being missing, Cassel getting injured, Fusco and Rudolph going out, this is a huge building year where the offense isn't going to be nearly as good as normal. Cassel should still be starting for Bridgewater to learn more (and this is with Bridgewater looking okay thus far), two of the better talent position players on the Vikings missing, including Peterson who the offense should be running through. Right now there are no "must win" games in my world, what I want to see is continued improvement. Stuff like McKinnon improving quickly is what I want to see, to see Barr continue to improve, and Bridgewater as rookies. Same with Patterson, let's see him prove as a route runner and receiving threat. Then, even if the Vikings lose crappy games like last week, we'll have more hope than we did last year.

I'm going bold.

Teddy throws for 300, at least 2 TDs, no picks.

34-10

Correct. Here was Minnesota's last win at Tampa Bay: http://www.pro-football-reference.com/boxscores/199710260tam.htm

The Cover-2 is a great opportunity for Teddy to gain some confidence.

Confident our defense should have another strong showing.

I too feel a little bit better about this game. We have had some pretty dang good defenses the last couple weeks. Hopefully this week our O-line steps it up a bit and has a better game against a not quite so talented defensive line.

Barr vs ASJ or Evans could be big. Zimmer attempted to cover Watkins with Barr on a couple of drag routes, and we all saw how that worked out.

Other than that Evans vs Munnerlyn will be interesting
