US Bank Stadium May Be Loudest Venue in the Entire NFL

As I do most mornings, I woke up early to make breakfast today and turned on Good Morning America (I just can't get enough of George Stephanopoulos). There I was, angrily prying apart freezer burned Eggo Waffles when I was surprised to see a segment about not only Minnesota in general, but the new Vikings stadium (Click here to see the segment/video) as well. The piece discussed the potential noise level at US Bank Stadium, saying that it had the potential to become the loudest venue in the NFL.


Minnesota Vikings Position Battle Power Rankings; Preseason Week 3

The Minnesota Vikings are starting to finalize their starting lineup. Sunday’s third preseason game is the usual “dress rehearsal” game in which the teams play their starters the longest and generally construct what they expect to be the starting lineup. The Vikings are still sorting out who will be in their Week 1 starting lineup, but that is mostly because of injuries. Here are the position battles most talked about this week.

Alabama And Oklahoma Going Down? A Look At What Could Happen In Week 1

Chargers-Vikings Preview--All Eyes on Teddy

The Vikings face the San Diego Chargers at home on Sunday afternoon, and the Vikings will take a slight back seat in the game. They don’t give the spotlight to the Chargers; rather the lights will be shining on U.S. Bank Stadium, which opens its doors to football fans for the first time. But there is plenty to pay attention to on the field, as well.

[GIF Breakdown] How Mike Zimmer Racked Up Four Sacks In One Preseason Half

Mike Zimmer's defense sacked Russell Wilson four times in a single half last week, and pressured Wilson on the majority of his dropbacks. That is a lot of pressure. That also underscores what Vikings fans have heard about the Vikings’ pass rush, after the Vikings’ front seven dominated the Bengals in training camp and demolished their own pass protection throughout their own camp.


Zimmer Doesn't Like to Talk About Injuries (Ya Think?)

Vikings head Mike Zimmer doesn’t like to talk about injuries. He demonstrated that quite well recently in the case of his quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Bridgewater was a late scratch for the second preseason game last week, and all Zimmer would say is it was his decision. But there seems to be so much more going on there.


Kaepernick Insurance Needed For Teddy

This season is too important to go limping in with Shaun Hill as the primary back-up, or an unknown commodity in Brad Sorensen (who?), especially when word finally leaked that Teddy Bridgewater has been nursing a sore shoulder.
