For two struggling teams, the Vikings and Cardinals both bring some super star names to the field this week. Will Larry Fitzgerald or Adrian Peterson be the difference maker in this game?
The Arizona Cardinals head to Minnesota for the Excitement Bowl. Ok, that might be a little unfair, but both teams have a single win between them. If Donovan McNabb cannot lead the Vikings to their first win of the season, then rookie quarterback Christian Ponder could get the call.
Arizona invested quite a lot in quarterback Kevin Kolb, who was once McNabb's backup in Philadelphia. So far, the results have been less than promising, but the Cardinals' struggles are more than Kolb and Larry Fitzgerald can fix by themselves.
Pete Prisco says to look for Adrian Peterson as the difference maker for the Vikings.
The Vikings are looking for their first victory while the Cardinals are looking for their second. Both teams will look to get their running games going, with both being in the top-10 in rushing yards per attempt. I look for a ball-control type of game with the Vikings getting their first victory behind a big game from Adrian Peterson.
