    Goes to the Good Guys, according to Football Outsiders :

    http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/teamst.php

    They rank our ST 5th, and Minnesota's 14th. Not sure what happened last week but while we were also 5th last week, Minnesota was 26th. You can see the numbers for yourself at the link, bottom line they rank us better at kickoffs, punting (best in the league for us there), kick coverage and punt coverage.

    In raw numbers for punting, we're 6th at 41.9 net, Minnesota is 29th at 36.7. Punts against, we also have a big lead being 1st at 35.3 net vs. Minnesota being 23rd at 40.4.

    ESPN doesn't seem to have the equivalent kickoff numbers but I guess they're probably similar based on FO's stats.
