Pat Williams, Vikings: The veteran defensive tackle gave pep talks all week, then shut down Oakland's running game with nine tackles.

Chester Taylor, Vikings: "Backup" tailback had the 12th-best rushing day in team history (22 carries, 164 yards, three TDs) and caught three passes.


First quarter, first play from scrimmage

Vikings first-and-10 on the Raiders 16

The play: Chester Taylor swept left, gave the ball to receiver Sidney Rice on the reverse, and Rice threw long to Visanthe Shiancoe for a 79-yard gain.

The result: The 11th-longest pass completion in Vikings history got the crowd into the game and set up a 10-yard touchdown run by Taylor.


This week's starter: Tarvaris Jackson

Play: Pocket awareness isn't what it should be; took three sacks and had two turnovers. Grade: Wade

Leadership: Let's face it, Jackson needs games like this to improve his on-field play before he starts running the show like Manning and Brady. Grade: Wade

Stats: Was 17-for-22 for 171 yards and a 79.9 rating ... but was overshadowed by WR Sidney Rice (118.8 rating). Grade: Wade

Overall: His end-zone interception prevented the game from being a rout early. Still nothing here to crow about. Grade: Wade
