    Pats vs Vikes - Statistical Comparison

    Just pulled some info on the Pats vs Vikes related to league ranking.
    I know there is a lot more that goes into who wins and looses, but on the whole I think we stack up pretty nicely against them.


    Note:
    X = better league rank (Pats 13 vs Vikes 11) out of the 24 stats kept by the league.
    I gave an X to each team for a tie.








    Pats League Rank Viks League Rank
    X Total First Downs 7 31
    X First Downs Rushing 4 32
    X First Downs Passing 10 23
    X Third Downs Conv 6 22
    X Fourth Down Conv 1 2
    X Total Offensive Plays 11 19

    It's their NFL rank, not a total number.

    Re: Pats vs Vikes - Statistical Comparison

    I am very surprised that we have not had some Pat fans on the board yet, they are pretty dedicated fan base so I figured we would have 5 or 6 posters by now.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Regardless of how evenly matched the two teams are, Lawrence Maroney can't do all the running by himself, look for the Vikings to blitz non-stop and put pressure on the immobile Tom Brady. The Vikings have the advantage in this game, not only cause it's Monday Night, and the Vikes do really good on Monday Night games, but we're at home.

    Vikes Win

    I've been over to one of their larger fan sites, http://www.patsfans.com, and they have some pretty good discussion going on aobut the upcoming game.
    Obviously they think their team will win, but most of them admit that the game is definately not a gimme.
    here is one intelligent post I was just reading:

    Default Re: Official Vikings vs Pats thread

    I'm not too sure I like the Patriots' chances on Monday night.

    Some reasons why I think we may lose:

    - The running game has struggled against teams who defend the rush well. Statistically speaking, I believe Vikings are the best against the run.

    - The Vikings have a notoriously strong homefield advantage. Their fans are loud and the dome seems to reverberate all that noise right at the QB's helmet.

    - Brad Johnson doesn't realy make that many mistakes. The Pats will most likely have to create their own turnovers rather than relying on a stupid throw or fumble (*cough* Losman *cough*).

    - Chester Taylor has really been coming on strong this year. And with that offensive line to run behind, he'll most likely have continued success every week, regardless of the opponent.

    - If injuries keep Graham and Neal out, running the ball might, in fact, be almost impossible against their front 7. As each week goes by without Graham, we really see how much he means to the running game.

    Some reasons why I think we'll win:

    - Tom Brady. He's starting to see more and more each week that he can, indeed, trust his new cadre of receivers.

    - The front 7 is beastly, even without Seymour. Though, it'd be nice to have him there, Jarvis Green is more than an adequate backup.

    - Maroney is probably wanting to leave an impression, on the professional level, at his old stomping grounds. He sure was fun to watch in college.

    - Coaching.
    All in all, I think this will be a close, hard game.
    But I think the Vikes are riding a high after defeating Seattle at home, and our run defense will make themone dimensional.
    If our offense can preform like it did on Sunday, we will win this game.

    Is Dillon hurt?
    No, why I say they can't run behind Maroney forever is because he's been their main runningback lately, also he's had more running yards than Corey Dillon and all the other rookie runningbacks at the moment. He is looking to make an impression on the football world, and what better way to make an impression than on MNF. (other than the Super Bowl obviously) Only problem for him is that he's facing the 2nd best defense in the league. ;D

    Also after thinking, (It's surprising I never thought to mention this in my last post :-\ It's kind of weird that I had forgotten it until now as it is) the Pat's don't have Deion Branch to pass too anymore, lowering their amount of decent WR's. They still have their reliable Troy Brown but he is way to slow now because of his age. Reche Caldwell still doesn't have very reliable hands (in my opinion). Chad Jackson has yet to make a big impression on the league. Last but not least, (nobody cares about Jabar Gaffney anyways considering he was a Texan :P) Doug Gabriel is, like Troy Brown, still too slow, though in my opinion, he may be able to establish himself pretty good Reciever in the future.
