The Vikings' game today against Green Bay wasn't quite the success that last week's victory over San Diego was- not even close. The Vikes lost 34-0, for their first shutout loss since the 41-0 NFC title game loss in 2001, and their first regular season goose-egg since 1991.

It's hard to pick the worst part- the injury to Adrian Peterson (which, thankfully doesn't seem serious)? The grand total of 7 passing yards in the first half by Brooks Bollinger? The lack of anything encouraging from the defense? What a disaster. How can the Vikings look so good last week in beating San Diego, the same team that, as of this writing, is leading the Colts late in the fourth quarter?

The Eagles looked better, beating Washington despite trailing until the fourth quarter, when they scored two late touchdowns to win 33-25. Once again, Donovan McNabb had a decent game statistically despite a few glaring mistakes, and the offense showed signs of life as well. And with winless Miami at home next week, the Iggles have a chance to reach .500 (and fall under again the week after, when they travel to New England.)

Yes, it was a wild Sunday in the NFL. But isn't every Sunday wild?

Best postgame comment from Childress: "I thought we had some things going on that first drive, but then we didn't convert the third down and that kind of set the tone for the rest of the day."

They went three and out on the first drive, what exactly did they have going?

They had Scott Kluwe going, obviously.

By which I mean Chris Kluwe - whoops.

Example #413 that I can't bring myself to care about the Vikings this season.
