The ‘ passing game hasate move for Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen.The Mirror says the Spanish giants have been watching developments and now Barcelona have made a late move but Inter remain confident of agreeing a deal with Spurs this month.Barcelona would prefer been much maligned this season — and deservedly so. It is currently ranked last in the , compiling 173 yards per game.In three games this season, QB has passed for less than 100 yards (including this past Sunday against the Bears); in five games he has passed for less than 120 yards. It’s safe to say that Ponder isn’t currently on a lot of teams heading into the playoffs.But on Sunday, the passing game helped close the deal in the Vikings’ win over the Bears. RB had done much of the heavy lifting early in the ballgame, and the defense extended his efforts with a pick six of its own.But when the Bears were trying er Ademola Lookman has a bright future in the game.The 21-year-old signed for RB Leipzig in a permanent transfer, putting pen to paper on a five-year contract.He did not make it at Everton, but his former teammate Sigurdsson has no doubts about the wto get back in the game late, Ponder converted two third downs with passes to WR in the fourth yo Saka to some of the game’s greats.Van Persie says Saka reminds him of the likes of Ryan Giggs, Dennis Bergkamp and Paul Scholes after the youngster impressed during Arsenal’s Europa League clash against Olympiakos.”Ryan Giggs used to give those paquarter that helped burn the clock.”What [Christian] did in that fourth quarter, when we had those third down conversions between he and Michael, that was big for our football team because it allowed us to possess the football,” Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said.”It was a major part of our being able to win that game yesterday,” Frazier continued, “taking time off the clock, converting some key third-down situations at the quarterback position and then getting [the Bears] backed up to make them drive the length of the field to get back into the game. That’s efficient football; you can win with it if you don’t turn the ball over.”Jenkins made two big grabs in traffic for first downs at a time when the Vikings needed it. For a receiving corps that’s missing its No. 1 target (WR ), and its No. 2 target (TE ) was shut out, it was an opportunity to contribute to a win.“Any time you can convert on third down, it’s huge for the offense, lets our defense stay on the field, we continue driving, a chance to score points, so felt we like we needed those,” Jenkins said.After the second grab, in which Jenkins leapt high to pull down Ponder’s throw, he jumped up and spun the ball emphatically on the turf, as if to say, “Yeah, we can make plays, too.”“Yeah, I felt like it was a big play,” said Jenkins. “Emotions run high during the course of a game, and you know I felt like it was a play that we needed.”The team certain did need that play — and so did the Vikings receivers.For more Vikings news and notes, follow Joe Oberle on Twitter and .
