In yet another back and forth battle with the Lions in Ford Field, with calls and non-calls that drove us crazy, the Vikings offense was good enough to survive not the best day by the Purple secondary.

Purple Mafia Ep#254:Glass Ceiling

Purple Mafia Ep#253:Capitalize

Purple Mafia Ep#251:Clutch And Grab

Purple Mafia Ep#250:How Can It Be?

Despite being without our starting QB, our star RB Dalvin Cook, and even our top reciever Stephon Diggs, the Vikings find themselves 4-2 atop the division, despite hardly anything going right since the season opener.

Purple Mafia Ep#249:In The Pinch

The Vikings were able to survive a very ugly game in Chicago, a place where they never win, regardless how much better or worse they are than the Bears. Sam Bradford appears done, yet it took Vikings coaches the whole first half to finally put him out of his misery. Case Keenum helped save the

Purple Mafia Ep#248:Classic Vikings

In a day that brought back memories of the “Black and Blue” division, with former Lions LB Chris Spielman color commentating the game, it was classic Vikings in too many ways. Missed tackles on 3rd and long early on, a missed FG within 40 yards, missing our QB with a non contact injury after an
