    Default 6 games and the Vikings have played 1 outdoors.

    Cleveland
    @ Detroit
    49ers
    Packers
    @ Rams
    Ravens


    I say bring on the wind and rain..............and I heard we just sodded the field again so footing may be a bit of problem for those used to playing in a dome.

    About the same as a team of Long John Silver impersonators would look against Cleveland: Convincing.

    Default Re: Out of the Vikings first 6 games only 1 played outside.

    This definitely helps us... I hope to shut down Peterson, and with our D being ranked 2nd against the run, the outdoor game should help.... But unfortunately, it's not gonna be raining...

    BTW, check out Peterson's numbers against the AFC North so far.... (Cle, Balt games):

    ESPN did a piece on AP's "shoe fetish" that made me want to light him on fire, btw.

    Favre has played 16 years in some of the worst weather, so indoors or outdoors the weather will not have any effect on him. However, for 5 weeks this team has rushed the passer on turf. Have blocked on turf. Have made catches on turf. Have made cuts on turf. Kicked field goals on turf. Covered special teams on turf. You get my drift.

    I fully expect Minnesota to come into this game a little sloppy in my opinion.

    FTFY

    It should be interesting to say the least. I did not think of this fact coming into the game this week, it could only benefit the Steelers, right?

    Interesting looking at the numbers in that Cleveland game. Cleveland actually held AP to 2.8 yards/carry in the first half. For 3 quarters they kept him to 3.4 yards/carry. Although they allowed him 2 - 1yd TDs. Favre through the first half completed all his passes but one and was sacked twice. His longest pass completion in the first half was 18 yards. His numbers for the entire game was pretty pedestrian. 14/21 - 110 yds - 1td - 0int
    Cleveland kept the game close in the first half, up by three at the end of the half.

    BTW in this decade Favre is 0-2 vs the Steelers and he's never been to Heinz field. I believe Minnesota is 0-2 as well. Not that any of that matters.

    It's too bad it isn't going to be cold and snowing, Favre has been horrible in the past few years in cold, snowy weather.

    I personally think the over confident, ego driven Favre has to rear his head sooner or later and hopefully it will be this game. He seemed awful giddy after completing a long pass Sunday and it's just a matter of time before he's throwing into double and triple coverage.
