    Vikings linebacker Ben Leber likes what he sees in the eyes of opposing players these days.

    Concern....

    The Vikings have 22 sacks at home but just three on the road.
    Wow.
    Talk about a home field advantage.

    That's a real strange stat. Even with the home field, it's a huge unexplainable difference there.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    I would like us to turn that up on the road. However, i think alot of that has to to with the fact that we are scoring more and forcing opponents to pass more.

    Tennessee leads the league in not giving up sacks with 5. Saints are right behind them with 8. Tampa Bay is next with 11. The Packers and Bears are not terrible either with 21 and 18. That might have something to do with it.

    Like a sort of wet purple concrete, it gushes through cracks and overcomes offensive linemen to dry into a near-impenetrable wall.

    Watching it on film, people drawing up the plans to stop it sigh in disbelief.....

    Our defensive line is the best it's been in years. Jared Allen is the difference maker. Another important point is that the loss of Udeze's solid play has been pretty much backed up by Edwards and Robison.


    Go Vikings!
