So the Vikings defense was ranked #9 entering Thursday night's game...
 
Let's see... the 9th ranked Vikings defense playing at home, vs the worst defense ever in the history of mankind, the Saints defense, playing on the road, both playing the very same Bucs team:

Vikings D allows 36 points. Saints D allows 28
Vikings D allows 17 points in the second half. Saints D allows 7
Vikings D allows 163 yards rushing. Saints D allows 102.
Vikings D allows D Martin to run for 135 yds on. Saints D allows D Martin to run for 85.
Vikings D sacks Freeman once. Saints D sacks Freeman twice.

edit to add:
Vikings D is now on the 6th year of playing in their current D system. Saints just played their 6th game in Spags' system.
Vikings D has had all of its coaches for the entire year. The Saints were missing and important coach in Vitt.

Agreed wholeheartedly, however, the equation you are attempting to form doesn't equate.

We should roll over the Vikings, but something about that Kryptonite dome of theirs saps us every time.

We win again by three or less.

Actually, and please correct me if I'm wrong tobias, I think what he's suggesting is that perhaps our defense didn't do as poorly against the bucs as it would seem.

Nice try. Our defense is still turrble. Just turrble...

the worst part about it is Tampa played on a short week ON THE ROAD.

You think that would favor the Vikings.

We sacked Freeman? I dont recall in the game we did unless it was that Goal Line stand on 4th down.

Galette sacked freeman on a 2nd and 10, Cameron Jordan sacked freeman on 4th and goal and caused the fumble

Rankings are a loaded gun... The difference between the number 1 ranked D in yds allowed vs the number 10 ranked D can be less than 40 yds a game... I don't care about rankings... Its all about matchups. Period.

Maybe things are looking up for us defensively, even though it doesn't really feel that way.

Teams match up differently against each other. In my opinion you can comparing the "who beat who" method means very little.
I'm not ready to say our defense is underrated... but they aren't hot garabge like they were in week 1 and 2.
Defense is getting better and giving our offense a chance to win.

Just my 2 cents
