Minnesota P Chris Kluwe. If anyone will ever punt a ball to the roof of the Metrodome, it'll be Kluwe. Mr. Hang Time entered the game leading the NFL with a 51.0-yard punting average, and he unleashed five boomers on the day: 57, 48, 59, 38 (but high), 40 (but very high) to the Saints' 10, 9, 20, 23 and 37 yards lines, respectively. Total New Orleans punt-return yards: 9. As posted by Peter King on SI.com

I guess even with a win Kluwe remains the go to guy in Minny......yeah right but its nice to have.

I think he should be player of the week for the Vikes as a team as he conistently pinned the saints deep and no return. He is a big reason also why the "D" did so well and helped us win the filed position battle.

Richard Owens had a good day on special teams. He caused the fumble on he opening kickoff, and had some tackles on returns.

Didn't Kluwe have a couple of touchbacks though so his net average was probably down, but hey I'll take that over having our special teams try to chase someone down!

Yeah he did have a good game, not to mention the first downs he got on offense. Nicly done.

he only had one and i believe it was his last punt so it didn't really matter.

Kluwe outkicked the cameraman twice.

How in the world did he get cut from someone's camp?

Love Kluwe, how long did we sign him for? I hope for a very long time.
