Vikings vs. Titans Preview.

The Minnesota Vikings come into this game at 1-2, while the Tennessee Titans are living the high life at 3-0.  The Vikings come into this game feeling it is a must win thinking how good the Packers have been this season.  So let's look into their gameplan

Offense-  The Vikings need to come into this game thinking run, run, and run some more.  The Titans defense has allowed 89 rushing yards a game and with Adrian Peterson in the Vikings backfield look for him to explode for above 100 yards this Sunday.  Against the Titans Gus Frerotte needs to throw a lot of short passes..Mixing in some deep balls to a guy like Bernard Berrian...Who has the ability to beat the titans corners down field.

Defense-  To knock down this Titans offense,  I think the Vikings should throw a lot of blitzes at this Titans offensive line..Jacksonville did that to the Titans in week one and held the Titans to just 17 points..If the Vikings hold the Titans to 17 or under...They WILL win this game.

Key Player- Adrian Peterson..This guy is bound to have a big game.  He is and should be the leader of this team.. He will get many touches due to their lack of QB's and WR's.  Obviously, a guy with Adrian Petersons talent will be able to produce with each carry he has.  Look for him to have a big week against the Titans in week 4.

Prediction- Vikings 24
                    Titans 10
