Eleven teams are perfect on all fourth-down situations through three games. Six are 1-for-1, while the Vikings, Buccaneers, Giants, Chiefs and Colts are 2-for-2. The Lions, who play host to the Vikings on Sunday, are 1-for-2 after Sunday's game against Tennessee ended with them being stopped on fourth-and-1 from the Titans' 7-yard line while trailing by a field goal in overtime.

Since the start of the 2009 season, the Vikings rank 12th in converting fourth-down situations, at 51 percent (25 of 49). The Bengals (30 of 48 ) and Browns (25 of 40) rank first at 62.5 percent. The Broncos (17 of 51) rank last at 33.3 percent. The Lions (26 of 58 ) are 21st at 44.8 percent, while the Packers (13 of 32) are 28th at 40.6 percent and the Bears (13 of 36) are 31st at 36.1 percent.

Chad Greenway: "That fourth-and-1 stop is one of the best feelings in football. To me, the advantage is with the defense. If we stop them on fourth down, it's a big momentum shift in the game. If they get a first down, it's usually more of a drive-changer for them, not a whole game-changer."

Charlie Johnson: "I've never been on a team where I didn't think we should go for it on fourth down. No better feeling in football than going for it and getting it. Especially against the 49ers."
