MINNEAPOLIS -- ?? The Minnesota Vikings will return to the comfort of their new stadium this weekend, lugging some heavy baggage with them. Kaufen Air Max 97 Italy Flag Herren Metallic Gold/weiß-University Rot Schweiz .Four straight losses can weigh on a team that was undefeated before the streak started, dampening a Super Bowl aspiration at full strength just last month.Right now, theres pressure on everybody, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. My dad told me a long time ago, If you make it through the downs, the ups will take care of itself. So were just going to keep doing what we do. If we get backed up into a corner, were going to come out and fight.The Arizona Cardinals wont be the ideal visitors on Sunday. Though theyve been one of the NFCs many underperformers and yet to win a game outside of the Pacific time zone, the Cardinals (4-4-1) are plenty dangerous on both sides of the ball. They have their own urgency to catch up in the conference playoff race while starting a final stretch with five of seven games on the road .David Johnson leads the NFL in yards from scrimmage, with at least 100 in each game, and a defense that was dominant before Minnesotas momentum-killing bye week has been vulnerable against pass-catching running backs. The Vikings (5-4) will also be breaking in a new kicker, Kai Forbath , after releasing Blair Walsh.A lot of people are doubting right now, and thats fine, but as long as everyone in this locker room believes, were going to be OK, left guard Alex Boone said.Here are some more angles to the matchup:BRADFORD BLOSSOMING: Despite an injury-ravaged offensive line and a nonexistent running game, Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford has already set a career high with five games with a 100-plus passer rating. Hes third in the NFL in completion percentage and fifth in interception percentage, still yet to be picked off in a home game. But cornerback Patrick Peterson and the rest of Arizonas accomplished, versatile defense will provide a stiff test.Probably the best group that weve faced, Bradford said.GO-TO GUY: Minnesotas Stefon Diggs, whos tied for fourth in the league with 61 receptions, caught 13 passes in each of the past two games to set an NFL record. Three players share the all-time mark of 36 catches over a three-game span, with Pittsburghs Antonio Brown the most recent to get there.Theres no doubt, then, who will be responsible for containing Diggs: Peterson, whose 19 interceptions since he entered the league in 2011 are third most during that span. Thats despite many quarterbacks deciding to throw away from the place on the field occupied by the three-time All-Pro.Its going to be a great matchup, Bradford said. Its going to be fun to watch.FITZGERALD THEATER: Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald will play in his home city for the fifth time in his 13-year career. He has never won in Minnesota.The summertime, thats when Im coming home for some leisure, but this is a business trip, said Fitzgerald, whos second in the NFL with 68 receptions. Im coming for only one reason, and thats to try to get a win.PRAISE FROM PALMER: Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmers respect for and insight into Zimmers character and personality run deep. They were together from 2008 through 2010 in Cincinnati, where Zimmer was the defensive coordinator. Palmer said he sees parallels between Zimmer and Cardinals coach Bruce Arians, both of whom didnt get a head coach position until late in their careers.Everybodys held accountable, whether youre the best player on the team or the guy thats just about to get cut, Palmer said. Thats something that guys really respect, I know.And Zimmer did not play favorites, Palmer said.He doesnt hold back. He tells you the truth. He doesnt sugarcoat things, Palmer said. If you need to do better, you better do better or else hes going to replace you, and hes serious about things like that. There are no politically correct-type statements. Hes very cut and dried, and what you see is what you get.TACKLES CHALLENGE: John Wetzel had his first start at left tackle in Arizonas win over San Francisco last week and held his own in place of Jared Veldheer, who is out for the season with a torn triceps. Facing a tough defensive front in a loud stadium at Minnesota is another matter.Everson Griffen is, I think, one of the most underrated defensive ends in the league, Arians said, going on to praise Vikings defensive end Brian Robison and defensive tackle Linval Joseph.Wetzel hadnt played in an NFL game until this season.This is a big, big test, Arians said.---For more NFL coverage: and Kaufen Air Max 97 Herren Silber-/Grau/Rot Schweiz . The defending champion beat Gael Monfils of France 7-6 (6), 6-3, while second-seeded Andy Murray of Britain dispatched Edouard Roger-Vasselin, also of France, 6-3, 6-3. Making his first appearance since injuring his wrist a month ago, Del Potro had difficulty with his service games in the first set. Nike Air Max 90 Günstig Kaufen Schweiz . -- Arizona raced out to a big lead and did not back off, hitting the accelerator instead. . Gerald Green and Miles Plumlee? Green had bounced around the NBA when he wasnt playing overseas. The Pacers gave up on Plumlee after just one season. Now Green and Plumlee are key cogs in the Suns surprising breakout season. Through the opening weeks of the season, the Edmonton Oilers emerged as something of a pleasant surprise as they strung together wins and moved atop the Pacific Division.But the season is one long grind, and their next opponent is no pushover.The Oilers will try to avoid their first three-game losing streak on Sunday night when they meet the New York Rangers, who come to Rogers Arena with the leagues most potent offense.New York (11-4-0) is going for its third win in four visits to Edmonton and first two-game season series sweep of the Oilers since 1998-99.Edmonton (9-5-1) began the season winning seven of eight, but the Oilers have coooled off by going 2-4-1. That included a 5-3 loss to the Rangers on Nov. 3 at Madison Square Garden, where New York erased a third-period deficit with three consecutive goals.After wrapping up a five-game Eastern swing with a loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night, the Oilers were beaten 3-2 on Friday by the injury-riddled Dallas Stars.McLellan wasnt citing any residual effect from the road trip as a reason for coming out flat.Its always an excuse when you lose, McLellan told the Edmonton Journal. If we come out and play a great game, were not talking about playing five games in eight days on the road. Its the NHL. We have to do it eight times a year and so does everybody else. No excuses. Show up to the rink ready to play.Edmontons Connor McDavid drew an assist Friday, giving him five during a three-game streak. McDavid, who also had an assist against the Rangers this month, is tied with Alexander Wennberg of the Columbus Blue Jackets for the league lead with 13.However, the Oilers 19-year-old captain remains stuck on five goals as he has failed to score in seven straight games.Another player who has struggled for the Oilers is goaltender Cam Talbot, who backed up the Rangers Henrik Lundqvist for two seasons before being dealt to Edmonton in June 2015.Talbot is 1-3-1 with 3.39 goals-against average and .890 save percentage this month after going 7-2-0 with a 2.04 GAA, .936 save percentage and two shutouts in October.Edmonton still leads the Pacific Division with 19 points, one more than the San Jose Sharks and two points in front of the Anaheim Duckks. Nike Air Max 2019 Weiß. And in spite of the Oilers recent play, center Mark Letestu told the teams official website Saturday that theres no reason why Edmonton cant keep up with the Rangers.If we can take anything from that game at Madison Square Garden, its were right there with them, said Letestu, who has two goals and four assists in 15 games. There should be confidence in this room that we can beat them and we should play with that kind of bravado and swagger out there.This is a team thats coming into our house and we expect to win so I think its going to be a great game. Two good teams, real fast, well see how it goes.The Rangers run through western Canada as part of a four-game road trip got off to a flying start with a 4-1 win over the Calgary Flames on Saturday night.Michael Grabner, Derek Stepan and rookies Jimmy Vesey and Pavel Buchnevich each scored for New York, which is averaging 4.13 goals per game.Its impressive to see how we create chances every game, said Lundqvist, who came within 8:48 of a shutout. ... It gives the team a lot of confidence knowing we can score if we really have to.Grabner has a team-high eight goals in 15 games. That matches his total in 34 games with the New York Islanders in 2014-15, and is one off the nine he had in 80 games with the Toronto Maple Leafs last season.Grabner, who notched a goal and an assist against the Oilers 11 days ago, has one career assist in five games in Edmonton.Lundqvist made 35 saves on Saturday and has been outstanding in his last eight starts, going 7-1-0 with a 1.88 GAA, .934 save percentage and a shutout.Hes making key saves, especially early in the year and early in games, Grabner said of Lundqvist. ... Hes one of the best goalies in the world.However, his last appearance in Edmonton was forgettable. Lundqvist surrendered five goals on 33 shots and was lifted 2:40 in the third period of a 7-5 loss on Dec. 11, 2015.Rangers center Rick Nash has three goals and four assists in a four-game points streak against Edmonton. Nash also has three goals and six assists in his last eight games in northern Alberta.
