NEWS

Covers Preview - The Minnesota Vikings not only have yielded their grip on first place in the NFC North but also have dropped out of the top six in the conference as they prepare to visiting the skidding Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Minnesota's 5-0 start to the season is a distant memory in the wake of six losses in seven games that dropped the team one game out of the final playoff slot.
