Vikings host Hot Cowboys Squad

Vikings Defense is key for a win

The Dallas Cowboys (10-1, 1st NFC East) will come into US Bank Stadium looking to do something no other Cowboys team in history has ever done, record their 11th straight victory.  For the Minnesota Vikings (6-5, 2nd NFC North) their defense, which is ranked fourth best in the league, will be the key to victory.

Zimmer Up against Cowboys as a head coach for the first time

Former Cowboys Defensive Coordinator Mike Zimmer leads the Vikings and their defense, one of the best in the league, has yet to allow a hundred vikings-4yard receiver this season.  The Vikings rank third in the NFL against the pass (206.8 yards per game) and fourth in overall defense (307 yards per game). Opponent quarterbacks are completing only 57.9 percent of their passes against the Vikings, third best in the NFL, and are operating at a 74.3 efficiency rate, second best in the league. The Vikes have also allowed the fifth fewest passing touchdowns (13) and have the third-most interceptions (12).

Vikings lose 4th straight

Cardinals fly into US Bank Stadium to take on Vikes

The Minnesota Vikings (5-4, 2nd NFC North) have very little time to turn things around and stay above .500.  While there is still time to take over the weak NFC North, there is no more time for a struggling offense that was locked out of the end zone in the second half last week against the Redskins.

vikings-3The Cardinals (4-4, 2nd NFC West) are coming off  a 23-20 win over the San Francisco 49ers. While not the most potent team in the league but the contest between Sam Bradford and Carson Palmer should be most interesting.


The Vikings will have to again use a patchwork offensive line but in the end they cannot use that as an excuse for not executing.

“It’s one of those things where we can’t make excuses,” guard Alex Boone said. “We can’t sit there and say, ‘Well, this guy’s new to me, this guy’s new to me, I don’t know how he’s going to play.’ That just doesn’t jibe in this league anymore. It’s going to be on us as an offensive line to pick things up quick this week.”

Vikings take Hall of Fame Game

The NFL is back and on Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings hosted the Pittsburgh Steelers in the annual Hall of Fame Game which drew a remarkable 6.9 share rating, the highest rated program that night and the highest rated Sports program all year.  In comparison, the Stanley Cup Finals Game 6 drew a 6.5, the NBA Eastern Conference Finals drew a 5.6 and Western drew a 5.4.  The Indy 500 drew a measly 4.3.

The Vikings won the contest 14-3 but the Steelers hardly played any starters.  Starters not playing included QB Ben Roethlisberger, RB Le’Veon Bell, and receivers Antonio Brown, Martavis  Bryant and Markus Wheaton.

US Bank claims naming right to new stadium

When asked, the Vikings issued a ‘no comment’ to inquirers.

Final Mini Camp opening up

As the off season comes to a close, Vikings Head Coach Mike Zimmer has called this mini-camp the most important of them all heading into Training Camp in July.  There are a number of issues the coaching staff will be keying but this camp will give an overall picture of where his team stands.  The following are some of the stand out issues:

  • Tight End Shuffle – The Vikings ran more two TE sets than any team last year.  With  TE John Carlson signing on with Arizona, Rhett Ellison and Chase Ford have an opportunity to shine this season.
  • Getting Anthony Barr situated at Outside Linebacker – Barr, the teams top 2014 draft selection just graduated from UCLA.
  • Safety in numbers? – After sitting out most of last season with injuries, Jamarca Sanford and Andrew Sendejo could lose their jobs to Kurt Coleman, Robert Blanton or Antone Exum.
  • Quarterback Controversy?  Not so says Coach Zimmer.  “I want to give everybody (Matt Cassel, Christian Ponder and Rookie Teddy Bridgewater) an opportunity and make sure that it’s a legitimate opportunity for all of them,” Zimmer said Tuesday after the Vikings opened their mandatory minicamp. “Then we’ll start narrowing down the reps as we get going. But it won’t be for a while.

Whatever the outcome, be sure to get your tickets and cheer on your Minnesota Vikings!
