Souhan: My Super Bowl pick

The Rams' Michael Brockers (90) rallied his teammates before Super Bowl LIII against the New England Patriots on Sunday.

Six reasons why I'm picking the ...

Souhan rapid reaction: Only the result matters as Vikings shut down Detroit

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs (14) leaves the stands after scoring a touchdown during the first half of an NFL football game against th

The details don't matter much at this time of the year because the Vikings have entered the portion of the season in which only math matters.


Souhan postgame reaction: Vikings in great shape for playoffs

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook held up two fingers to signify his second touchdown of the game after his 21 yard scoring run in the fourth

With their 41-17 victory over Miami on Sunday, the Vikings likely will need only a victory against a battered Detroit team next Sunday to make the playoffs.


Souhan: Vikings haven't done much to show they're a playoff team

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins (8) passes against the New England Patriots during the first half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Dec. 2,

The Vikings are 6-5-1 with four games remaining and their spotty play on Sunday provided another reminder that we have little evidence, apart from preseason prognostications, that they are a good team.


Souhan: Belichick will challenge the Vikings on Sunday

What's fascinating about covering the NFL is that every week everyone knows what the coaching staffs should be trying to accomplish, yet so often the coaching staffs fail to make it happen. It's different when you cover a Patriots game. Bill Belichick usually makes it happen.


Souhan rapid reaction: Cousins again shows he likes facing Packers

Sunday night, Kirk Cousins outperformed Aaron Rodgers and led the Vikings to a 24-17 victory over Green Bay at U.S. Bank Stadium


Souhan postgame: Vikings needed a game like this one

Vikings receiver Adam Thielen caught a 2 yard touchdown over Lions corner back Nevin Lawson in the second quarter at U.S.Bank Stadium Sunday 4, 2018 i

The Vikings needed a game like this - a laugher, an opportunity to coast, a chance to go into the bye feeling good and looking like a playoff contender.


Souhan rapid reaction: Not always pretty, but Vikings win

Good teams tend to win as a matter of habit, and the Vikings have been forming one of late, as they exhibited with their 37-17 victory over the Jets on Sunday.


Souhan rapid reaction: Thielen produces again

Adam Thielen made a catch during the first half of Sunday's game.

Adam Thielen has become the NFL's most consistently excellent receiver, and on Sunday he became Kirk Cousins' safety belt as well.


Souhan: Grading the Vikings in Sunday's win over the Eagles

Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs tried to break free from the Eagles' Sidney Jones during the second half Sunday.

A's and B's for the most part. But something was only average in the victory over the Eagles.


Souhan postgame: Sunday's victory could be key point in season

Beating the Eagles in Philadelphia does nothing to make up for losing the NFC title game here nine months ago, but it does fit nicely into a winning scenario for this season.


Vikings, Sherels and Gagliardi

RIP, John

Souhan: The reasons why I'll miss Paul Molitor

I'll miss Paul Molitor for many reasons, the foremost of which was that he created so many great moments for me as a baseball writer.


Souhan: Rams coach beat Zimmer, so quit blaming Barr for touchdowns

Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley catches a touchdown pass in front of Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr during the first half in an N

"Anthony Barr is an easy target now, and I've questioned his play in the past. What happened in Thursday's loss was not his fault."


Jim Souhan grades the Vikings

Columnist Jim Souhan gets out his red pen and assigns the Vikings grades on offense, defense, special teams and coaching vs. the Rams


Souhan rapid reaction: A defensive collapse in Vikings loss

Todd Gurley caught an 8-yard touchdown in the first quarter.

Mike Zimmer has a problem. He built a statistically great defense that has collapsed in the calendar year of 2018.

Souhan: Cousins, Rodgers produced a classic (and kickers ruined it)

Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins showed he has what it takes to be in the NFC North moment with his 425-yard, 4 TD performance on an afternoon Aaron Rodgers proved yet again he is special.
