Carter Homecoming To Be Event
But, however much he wants to dismiss the role his return to Minnesota will play, there is no arguing that Carter will have an impact today.

* VU has been told that the agent for recently-released DT Steve Martin of the Patriots has indicated four teams have already expressed an interest. One team being floated around as one of the four is the Vikings.
* Former Viking QB Jay Fiedler has the best winning percentage of any starting QB in the NFL right now.
* Something has to give today. Miami is 1-7 in its last eight road games vs. NFC teams. However, the Vikings have lost five straight games to AFC teams.
* Ricky Williams has five straight 100-yard rushing days to his credit and a pair of 200-yard games thrown in the mix.

* The Vikings need just 56 rushing yards today to set a franchise record for rushing yards in a season.
* Miami coach Dave Wannstedt has a 4-10 career record vs. the Vikings.
