Tennessee Titans vs. Minnesota Vikings: Live Score, Video and Analysis

Mike Nelson@Mike_E_NelsonCorrespondent IOctober 7, 2012

With their 30-7 victory over the Tennessee Titans (1-4) on Sunday the Minnesota Vikings moved to 4-1 and remain atop the NFC North (they own the tie-breaker with the Chicago Bears).

It was a dominant performance against an opponent who struggled in all phases of the game.

The Vikings accumulated 433 yards on offense, a season high, and limited the Titans to 267 total yards.

Tennessee running back Chris Johnson continued his dismal season with 24 yards on 15 carries. He's leaving Tennessee fans, fantasy football players and the NFL community baffled as one of the league's most talented backs continues to struggle mightily.

The Titans clearly weren't the same offense that posted 44 points and defeated the Detroit Lions in Week 3 without quarterback Jake Locker, who is out with a shoulder injury.

Matt Hasselbeck just wasn't up to the challenge while the Minnesota defense was well up to the challenge of limiting him to 200 yards passing and forcing two turnovers.

After today the Titans appear primed for a top-five pick in the upcoming NFL draft while the Vikings are well on their way to competing for a postseason berth.

If you would like to chime in on the game, feel free to leave a comment. I would love to keep the discussion going.
