TODAY’S VIKINGS SCHEDULE
The Vikings have their walkthrough at 10:30 a.m. before holding their final night practice of camp in Mankato. The practice runs from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. and the players will be in full pads.
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
The Vikings defense forced just 20 turnovers last year, which ranked 27th in the NFL, and the team finished with a negative-nine turnover differential that was among the league’s worst. New head coach Mike Zimmer hopes to change that. His Bengals forced 31 turnovers last year, trailing just the Seahawks and Chiefs, but Zimmer didn’t pick off those passes or force those fumbles himself.
