“Zimmer Turner Overdrive”

Since: Jan 07


#1 Feb 18, 2013

Scored 379 points (23.7/g), 14th of 32 in the NFL.
Allowed 348 points (21.8/g), 14th.
Differential of 31 points (1.9/g), 13th.
Takeaway/Giveaway Differential -1 (-0.1/g), 17th
record 10-6
5-4 with Harvin, 5-2 without, 4-0 after harvin put on ir for the year -
I think it made team focus on feeding the beast. AD, 957 yards with harvin (106 yards/game), 1140 yards without harvin (163 yards/game) and AD got hurt (sports hernia) against Houston, 86 yards that game.

3-0 in games with pick 6.
Cardinals, 21-14 (Harrison Smith)
Bears, 21-14 (Harrison Smith)

Rams, 36-22 (e. Griffen)

1-0 with two special teams TDs,
Lions, 21-14 (Sherrels and Harvin)

Quite amazing to me the Vikes won 10 games with a point differential of 1.9 per game and not winning turnover battle. Well played.

Football outsiders has the 2012 Vikings with the 14th ranked offense and 23rd ranked defense:
