The Minnesota Vikings aren't doing well this season, sitting at 2-7 and coming off a blowout loss to their biggest rivals, the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football. For Minnesota, the theme of the season has quickly turned from competing in the NFC North division and a shot at the playoffs, their usual destination, to a look to the future with rookie quarterback Christian Ponder. The name of the game for Minnesota right now is just that: see what Ponder can handle in his rookie season, but they are still trying to win games, and the Oakland Raiders are are coming to town.
Oakland is sitting atop the AFC West division at 5-4, after a big win on Thursday Night Football over the San Diego Chargers. They're riding hot and will have their foots on the gas when they take on the Vikings at the Metrodome.
