The Miracle Continues

The Vikings have now won six in a row, with today's 27-13 victory over St. Louis. The defense continues to dominate, and the combination of Brad Johnson and Koren Robinson continues to make everyone forget all about Culpepper and Moss. The Vikes are now merely one game out of first place in the NFC North; their Week 17 matchup against the Bears looms large.

After watching three quarters of the early games we headed down to the Linc for the Eagles-Giants game, where the Iggles actually showed signs of life for the first time in weeks, but nonetheless lost in overtime on a Jay Feely field goal, to earn mathematical elimination from the playoffs. An exciting game nonetheless- with rookie running back Ryan Moats even running for two touchdowns- and not such an impressive performance by the Giants, considering they were essentially facing Philly's second team.

Also- fights in the crowd. Lots of them, and lots of ejections from the stadium of Giants fans (though the Jints backer behind us with "Growing Up Gotti" hair managed to escape banishment). My favorite part was the scatological insults to Giants fans in the mens' room, especially the ones with creative scenarios involving Jeremy Shockey's mother.
