Green Bay at Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS (Oct. 19, 2005) -- The Minnesota Vikings will be playing in the Metrodome for the first time in nearly a month, and it's unlikely the home crowd will be happy to see them.

"Fans are always going to take shots at you," Vikings linebacker Keith Newman said, "and they've got a great opportunity right now."

The league's most disappointing team, on the field and away from it, will try to start getting the Minneapolis area back on its side when the Vikings play host to the Green Bay Packers.

It's bad enough Minnesota is off to a 1-4 start after being widely considered a Super Bowl contender following an offseason overhaul to the defense, but the team has become an embarrassment to the league.

"Sometimes you wake up and you say, 'Man, I didn't have anything to drink last night. I didn't have anything fattening. Why do I want to puke?' coach Mike Tice said. "Then you realize, 'Oh, that's right.' "
