Continued: Carolina at Vikings: Three things to know

Carolina’s defense should provide a good barometer for the Vikings running game. The Panthers own the seventh-ranked run defense in the league and have allowed only one 100-yard rusher and three rushing touchdowns total in their past eight games, dating to last season.

The Panthers rank third in the NFL in total defense and scoring defense. Their two most recent opponents — the New York Giants and Cardinals — managed only 400 total yards combined.

“They’re playing some good football up front,” Frazier said. “They’re doing a very good job against the run. They’re rushing the quarterback very well. They’re a formidable foe in a lot of ways, so we’ll have our work cut out for us against their defensive line.”
