The Minnesota Vikings head into their week six game with the Carolina Panthers with heavy hearts after star running back Adrian Peterson’s 2-year-old son died on Friday. According to ESPN on Oct. 12, Peterson said he will play in the game anyway as he relieves stress through sports. Here is a look at the big game this afternoon and how you can see the Panthers vs. Vikings live stream online.
While football might be the least of his worries at this time, there is the thought that Peterson could explode in this game, playing hard and taking all his aggressions out on the Panthers defense. There is the fact that Carolina ranks seventh in the NFL against the rush and eighth against the pass, but with Matt Cassel starting in Minnesota once again, this is Peterson’s game.
Carolina will try to turn things around as well. Despite their strong defense, they rank 30th in the league passing the ball, thanks to Cam Newton’s slow start. They still have a solid running attack with DeAngelo Williams leading the way, but this is a team that is struggling to move the ball.
Minnesota is favored over Carolina by 2.5.
The Panthers vs. Vikings live stream can be utilized not just for this big game, but for any NFL game today that you want to catch. The game kicks off at 1 p.m. EST and can be seen on some FOX affiliates if you check your local listings.
