MINNEAPOLIS -- Spent a few minutes on the Metrodome field before Sunday's game. Sorry to be a broken record, but the talk among NFL types centered on one player when it comes to Minnesota: quarterback Tarvaris Jackson.
Jackson appeared deep in thought as he walked onto the field for pregame warmups. He has plenty to think about. The general consensus this morning is that the Vikings won't get too far if Jackson plays Indianapolis the way he did last Monday in Green Bay.
If things go right for the Vikings, tailback Adrian Peterson will burn the Colts' defense and leave Jackson in minimal pressure situations. We'll see soon enough. Kickoff to come.
