Smooth Sailing For Minnesota Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings are now 2-0 after two weeks of the 2009 NFL season. Led by veteran quarterback Brett Favre, the team has the best running back in football and one of the best defensive units. The Vikings opted to sign Brett Favre for the fact that they felt the team was ready to contend for a championship, and a quarterback was one of the only missing pieces.

Through two weeks of the NFL season, the Vikings are really looking good. Of course, one could argue that their two wins both came against weak teams. In week one, the Vikings defeated the Browns in Cleveland by a score of 34-20, and in week two, the team bested the Detroit Lions in Detroit by a 27-13 score.

Despite the fact that these are two of the weaker opponents the Vikings will play through the course of the season, there’s one thing that shouldn’t be overlooked here.

Adrian Peterson looks like the best running back in the NFL, and more importantly, Brett Favre is playing efficient football at the quarterback position.

More than efficient, in fact. Favre has completed  ufabet เว็บหลัก37 of 48 passes (77.1 percent), and has thrown 3 TDs without throwing a single interception through the first two weeks of football. This gives Favre a QB rating of 110.2.

Easy opponent or not, Vikings fans have to be pleased with the results thus far. He’s not throwing as many passes as someone like a Drew Brees, but that’s not what this team needs. They just need a steady presence at the QB position, there to come through when the team needs him to. And Favre has been just that so far.
