The punt coverage hasn’t been good all season. It wasn’t good today either when DeSean Jackson ran one back for a whole bunch, setting up the Eagles in good field position. Thankfully, the Vikes got mucho pressure on Donovan McNabb and held Philly to a field goal. The other major development, so far, was an injury to Adrian Peterson who had to briefly leave the game. He got kind of crumpled and twisted while being tackled and complained of a bad neck. Chester Taylor came in for him and, frankly, looked better. Peterson’s ankle is clearly bothering him. Tarvaris Jackson has made a couple good throws and also nearly got picked. The Vikings appear to be having trouble with their communication system…both Tarvaris Jackson and Ben Leber have gestured at the sidelines as if they couldn’t hear the call through their helmet radios.
