Vikings Prepare, MNF Results,Suh Fined? 10 Sep 13

The Vikings are preparing for their Week Two matchup with the Bears on Sunday in Chicago.  Minnesota opened the season with a 34-24 loss at Detroit on Sunday.  Chicago began the year with a 24-21 home win over Cincinnati.  The Vikings snapped a six-game losing streak to the Bears in their last meeting last December.  Minnesota is 53-49-and-2 all-time in the series. 

 

 The Philadelphia Eagles and Houston Texans were victorious on Monday night to close out the NFL’s Week One slate.  The Eagles topped Robert Griffin the Third and the Washington Redskins, 33-27.  The Texans used a last-second field goal to clinch a 31-28 win over the San Diego Chargers.  Week Two starts Thursday when the Patriots host the Jets. 

 

Lions defensive end Ndamukong Suh [[ en-dom-uh-kon SOO ]] could face discipline by the NFL for a hit during Detroit’s season-opening 34-24 win over Minnesota on Sunday.  Suh tackled Vikings center John Sullivan at the knees during an interception and touchdown run by linebacker DeAndre Levy, which resulted in a flag and the loss of the six points.  Lions head coach Jim Schwartz says he talked to Suh on the field because it cost the team a touchdown and the tackle was behind the play.  The league is considering whether to fine or suspend Suh for the low hit.
