Vikings vs Lions… Good morning Horners! We have another division rival coming to town to play your Minnesota Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium. The Vikings coming off the win against the Packers with face the 3-4 Detroit Lions that could be less Matt Stafford due to him being put on the Covid list. He could clear as early as Sunday morning then fly to Minneapolis in time for the game. We know Kenny Golladay has already been called out, so which Lions team shows up is in question. Which Vikings team, the motivated one from last week or the flat one from the previous home games showing up is in question too. Which one do you think shows?
Dalvin Cook had a great game lest Sunday matching the 4 TD performance of Ahmad Rashad and Chuck Foreman. Will he do it again? Will Kirk Cousins have to pass more? As Drew points out, with Dalvin’s performance from last week, the play action pass is set up from the first offensive play of the game. Can we see that fake handoff and then Kirk bomb it deep to a streaking Justin Jefferson or Adam Thielen? Will the offensive line coming off their best game in years continue to play well? Dave asks if last Sunday was an attitude change point for them? Did they gel?
Old friends Adrian Peterson and Everson Griffen come to town, and as we saw, Everson got offended being called good by Mike Zimmer and promises to show that he is great. Riley Reiff might have something to say about that. It will be fun to watch.
So join us for first pregame show of the weekend, and then catch GMG In The Raw, the reaction show live 15 minutes after the game.
