Two former Iowa college standouts have helped the Minnesota Vikings move into a tie with the Chicago Bears at the top of the North division race. Former Iowa linebacker Chad Greenway leads the Vikings in tackles and coach Brad Childress says he has made a lot of strides in his second full season.
Childress says Greenway and the others have a great understanding of what needs to be done and are able to do it without thinking. Former UNI defensive back Benni Sapp is also playing a role for the Vikings.
Childress says Sapp plays in the dime package and really helps them in that role. Minnesota is 5-4 and visits Tampa Bay this weekend.
