Every weekday, we walk you through what’s going on with the Vikings.
WHAT YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED
At 22 and heading into his second NFL season, Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is quietly confident.
Columnist Jim Souhan believes that with Bridgewater and coach Mike Zimmer, the Vikings finally have a chance at long-term success.
So what will the Vikings offense look like with Bridgewater and running back Adrian Peterson finally together in the backfield?
Columnist Chip Scoggins said a talented Vikings defense could end up overshadowing Bridgewater and the Vikings offense this season.
He might not play a significant role on defense tonight against the 49ers, but the education of top pick Trae Waynes continues.
So who do I think will win tonight’s game? Click here for my pick.
AROUND THE NFC NORTH
Why didn’t Lions star wide receiver Calvin Johnson get the ball in yesterday’s come-from-ahead loss to the Chargers?
Packers wide receiver James Jones proved the Raiders and Giants wrong with a pair of touchdowns in a win over the Bears.
The Bears lost to the Packers, but at least they showed signs of improvement.
TODAY’S VIKINGS SCHEDULE
Ummm… the season starts tonight at 9:20. But you knew that already.
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
In case you needed a reminder of how crazy the NFL can be, the Bills throttled the Colts yesterday. The Rams, with about 12 people in the stands in St. Louis, stunned the Seahawks in overtime. Rookie Marcus Mariota threw four first-half touchdowns in his NFL debut. And the Cowboys rallied from 10 points down in the fourth quarter to beat the Giants. So what will the Vikings and 49ers do for an encore tonight?
