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 open preseason against Bengals on the road

The preseason is less than two months away and the Minnesota Vikings will be taking their show on the road for the first two preseason games, against the Bengals and the Seahawks before they return for the final two preseason games at home against the San Diego Chargers and the LA Rams.

The fact that the  Vikings made the playoffs last season for the first time since the 2012 season is an acknowledgement of the plan GM Rick Speilman and Head Coach Mike Zimmer have implemented is working.  Getting better through the draft and free agency, the Vikings are poised to take the NFC North again in 2016.


Tickets for both home preseason games and all regular season games are already on sale so be sure to get yours today and help cheer on your 

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!
