Audie Cole is getting A TON of run as Middle Linebacker tonight. Do we think he has surpassed Jasper Brinkley for the #1 spot?

 

I think Zimmer might consider a MLB rotation based on opponent...Brinkley a much better banger against the run, while Cole better in space and coverage...

Thats a good decision Cassel on a third down and long.  Not on a 1st and 10.  Parker had help on the backside.

Nice stunt by the Vikings results in a Brian Robison sack.

Good defensive series there.  Need more of them to help balance T.O.P

I'm not sure that throwing into double coverage to Jerome Simpson who clearly didn't have the edge is ever a good decision?

Blair Walsh easily drills a 41-yard field goal. Would have been good from about 60. Right down the middle.

Nice to see the sacks and interceptions, but this Chiefs offensive line has some major question marks.

Still unable to control the clock.  Time of possession is lopsided.  Was a big problem last year.  Take - give is 2-1 us so that's a positive.

Yeah, 19:20 - 10:40 TOP advantage for the Chiefs. Not good.

Doesn't bode well for two players facing roster cuts

Shamar Stephen made a very nice play on that third down.  Run across the field.  Kept great angle.  Kid wants to make this team.  7th rounder out of UConn

Wow! This Chiefs offensive line is bad. Makes me even more concerned about Jamaal Charles as a top-five fantasy pick. I'll let someone else take him.

Looking at McKinnon when he gets the handoff compared to Asiata when he is in, I like the way that Jerrick mixes it up a lot more.

Asiata is a modern day Leroy Hoard

Does the fan base explode if he leads a TD scoring drive?  Like we don't already know that answer.

Last roster spot comes down to WR....16 games of Adam Thielen or 12 games of Jerome Simpson?

Thielen is making the team. He's a lock.

Vikings last 3-0 start to the preseason was in 2009. That is all.
