Minnesota Vikings run over by Patriots 30-7 in home opener

After an impressive win against the St. Louis Rams in week 1, the Minnesota Vikings took 10 steps backwards this week after getting demolished by the New England Patriots.

Patterson comments upon perceived slight by Belichick

When the Minnesota Vikings host the New England Patriots on Sunday, there will be some extra motivation for second-year receiver Cordarrelle Patterson.

Patriots still have advantage over Vikings in Patterson trade

The New England Patriots desperately needed a wide receiver entering the 2013 NFL draft and Cordarrelle Patterson was sitting there, waiting to be drafted No. 29 overall.

Addition of Norv Turner already paying dividends for Vikings
