    Last Game v Ravens

    The Vikings and Ravens last regular season matchup came on Christmas day in 2005, in a nationally televised ESPN Sunday Night Football game. Despite a solid performance from Vikings starting QB Brad Johnson and a halftime lead, the Vikings fell to the Ravens 23-30.
    Johnson threw for 248 yards on 25-of-36 passing and 2 TDs, finishing the day with a 107.2 passer rating. TE Jermaine Wiggins was Johnson’s favorite target on the day hauling in 7 balls for 43 yards a touchdown. WR Travis Taylor grabbed the other TD pass on a 13-yard strike from Johnson. Taylor finished the day with 3 catches for 40 yards. WR Troy Williamson was on the receiving end of Johnson’s longest pass of the day, when the pair hooked up for a 56-yard completion.
    RB Mewelde Moore was the Vikings lead rusher with 49 yards on 10 carries. Moore also had 42 yards on 4 receptions.
    On defense SS Corey Chavous and current Vikings LB E.J. Henderson and DT Pat Williams tied for the team lead with 7 tackles apiece. FS Darren Sharper had 1-of-2 Vikings takeaways, picking off Kyle Boller in the 4th quarter. Sharper also added 6 tackles. LBs Raonall Smith and Sam Cowart tallied both of the Vi- kings sacks on the day. Current Vikings CB Antoine Winfield and DT Kevin Wil- liams had 4 and 3 tackles respectively and both notched a pass breakup.
    K Paul Edinger connected on 3 of his FG attempts, hitting from 36, 40, and 46 yards. Edinger was also true on both his PATs, while P Chris Kluwe was able to pin the Ravens inside their own 20-yard line twice. Also making an impact on special teams was reserve RB Adimchinobe Echemandu, who forced a fumble on then Ravens KR Chester Taylor that was recovered by Smith to open the second half.

    Snicker.......I still marvel, to this day, that people were upset that that team was gutted/shitcanned by the current regime.

    I was at that game... and it ruined my Christmas
    :'( but I got to meet Anthony Hererra after the game, and even Darren Sharper was out in the brisk Baltimore weather signing autographs... so it wasn't all bad
