Week 15 officially kicked off for Vikings players and coaches Wednesday in Eagan but most of the conversation centered on what happened at the end of Week 14.

Following a 21-7 loss at Seattle, the Vikings parted ways with offensive coordinator John DeFilippo after just 13 games in his role. Head coach Mike Zimmer addressed the move for the first time in front of cameras, while quarterback Kirk Cousins, center Pat Elflein and defensive lineman Everson Griffen also met with the media. Afterward, Star Tribune beat reporters Ben Goessling and Andrew Krammer offered their thoughts on the move, and look ahead to Sunday's game with the Dolphins at U.S. Bank Stadium.
