Pat Williams and the defense keep the Vikings sailing along

The article focuses on the football team Minnesota Vikings. They traded their best player in the offseason, lost their center and quarterback to injuries and had an embarrassing incident involving players and strippers on a boat. But they somehow picked themselves up, battled back and now have a legitimate chance of making the playoffs. With their win over the Saint Louis Rams on Sunday--their sixth victory in a row--they improved to 8-5 and moved within a game of first-place Chicago in the NFC North. What has fueled this turnaround has been the defense. It has forced turnovers, shut down running games and allowed few big plays.
