Vikings vs Chiefs… Good morning Horners! Your Minnesota Vikings have flown down to take on the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. The place is loud and Chiefs fans raucous. It will be a real test for the purple on the road. Whether Patrick Mahomes plays [and word is he won’t] or Matt Moore who ran Andy Reid’s offense well against the Green Bay Packers last week, it will test the ability of Mike Zimmer’s defense and offense to come out hot. Sleeping through the first quarter won’t hack it because this team can put up points. Will it be a shootout or can the Vikings control the game? That is the big question.
The Chiefs have some outstanding receivers. They have Tyreek Hill and Mecole Hardman that “are ungodly fast” as Drew says. They also have one of the best tight ends in the league with Travis Kelce. We all know that good tight ends have caused problems in coverage. The Chiefs also base 68% of their offense with the pass, so Zimmer and George Edwards will have their hands full slowing and stopping that aerial attack. Xavier Rhodes, Trae Waynes and the rest of the defensive backfield will have to play at their best.
After an Eeore moment by Ted and Drew, all is not lost because Kirk Cousins is hot! Dave apologizes for his overreaction after last week to the guys. He hopes to see lots of Dalvin Cook and the run game, but also would like to see passes beyond ten yards to the Vikings studs like Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen [hopefully], Irv Smith Jr., Kyle Rudolph, and Dalvin Cook. If the game does turn into a shootout, the Vikes have the weapons to compete.
We wrap the show with Drew’s Trivia Challenge, the Vikings vs Chiefs version, and to everyone’s delight, a Don Glover story. This one was about Joe Kapp in Super Bowl IV stirring in a little bit of conspiracy, and who doesn’t like that? This will take you into today’s game prepared and entertained. Are you ready?
We hope you enjoy the game, enjoy good friends, good times, and always good food and beverages, and GO VIKINGS!
