Vikings vs Seahawks… Good morning Horners! Your Minnesota Vikings are on on the road again, this time to Seattle on Monday Night to play the likely playoff bound Seahawks. Russell Wilson has played, well like, Russell Wilson and is in the running for MVP. He has his gum chewing coach, Pete Carroll, leading the squad playing above their weight and in second place behind the San Fransisco Forty Niners but more importantly ahead of the Vikings in the playoff seeding as of now. This game will determine if that remains the same or the Vikes move upward after the week. The game has playoff implications and almost a playoff feel in what it means for both teams. The Seahawks hope to catch the Niners and the Vikes hope secure the chance to win the NFC North and a loss for either team greatly diminishes those goals.
Kirk Cousins has been playing overall magnificently since week 4 with Kevin Stefanski calling mostly very effective games. The Vikings weapons on offense have been humming as a result, be it Stefon Diggs, Kyle Rudolph, Dalvin Cook, or their number 2s like Irv Smith Jr, Olabisi Johnson, and Alexander Mattison. That group may grow even better, to full strength, if Adam Thielen and his tweaked hammy is good to go. That will be a game time decision. Mike Zimmer has now had the bye to game plan how to defend against Wilson’s arm and cover Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf. He did last season effectively and will need to again.
Drew engages in his trivia challenge again, this time the Vikings vs Seahawks edition. There are look backs at some good wins and a spin through some awesome history. If you are still recovering from a great Thanksgiving, you rock! Hopefully a win Monday makes it even better. GO VIKINGS!
