Tennessee Titans vs Minnesota Vikings will take place at Mall of America Field Sunday, with the Vikings looking to continue their good run of form into week 5. The game starts at 4.25 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (details below).
The Vikings have won their past two games in a row and will be looking to turn that into three against the Titans today. In week 4 they managed to gain a good 20-13 victory against the Detroit Lions, which should help the feel-good factor to continue in Minnesota.
To win today they will be looking to Adrian Peterson to maintain his good form; he devastated the Lions' defense by rushing 102 yards on 21 carries. If he can build on that good form today then the Titans could be in trouble.
Meanwhile, Vikings' quarterback Christian Ponder had a tough game, completing 16 of 26 passes for just 111 yards, but he did help to set up two crucial field goals by kicker Blair Walsh, which were extremely important in the closely competed contest.
In that game both touchdowns came on special teams, with a spectacular 105 yard kick off return by Percy Harvin, as well as a 77 yard punt return by Marcus Sherels.
Meanwhile the Titans are looking to bounce back following their big loss to the Houston Texans in week 4. That 38-14 loss will have knocked some of the confidence out of the team, and they will hope to immediately comeback with a win today against the Vikings. In last week's loss, replacement quarterback Matt Hasselbeck managed to complete 17 of 25 passes for 193 yards, however, he was loose in his passing and threw two poor interceptions.
If the Titans are to win today they may rely heavily on running back Chris Johnson, who had a good game despite his team's loss last week. Johnson ran 141 yards on 25 carries, and he will be an important player for the Titans today.
