Climbing The Pocket Live! The Original talking Vikings, Jags and Bucs

The original CTP crew looks at the Vikings and how they will have to win in Tampa against the Buccaneers. Did play in the Jaguars game point to a solution? Will Cameron Dantzler and Justin Jefferson be the rookies that will make the difference?

Climbing The Pocket went LIVE! Recorded for Vlogmas, the network brings you another live show featuring Jayson, Yinka and Myles from the original crew to talk to your Minnesota Vikings.

The Jaguars… The Vikings seem to come out very flat for another week at home or at U.S. Bank Stadium as Myles points out. Kirk Cousins play wasn’t great but wasn’t terrible, but he did come up with another game-winning drive even if it was to hand off to Dalvin Cook numerous times, and the Vikes came away with the W.

The offense has been turnover prone and this cannot happen Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They need every advantage they can get. That may mean stellar play from Kirk Cousins to receivers like Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson. Dalvin Cook looks to be in for a long day against the number one run defense in the league. The Vikings will need to adjust, like against the Chicago Bears to keep drives alive and scoring points.

The Vikings defense will be against its biggest test of the season facing Tom Brady and his trio of receivers including Chris Godwin, Mike Evans, and Antonio Brown, along with Rob Gronkowski. The normal way to attack Tom Brady is via pressure early and often but can the Vikings defense generate that? They haven’t been able to do much this year without having to go to a bunch of blitz packages. Blitzing however against Tom Brady can be a mistake because he seen just about every one of them. Jeff Gladney and Cameron Dantzler have stepped up their play tremendously, and will have to continue for the Vikings to have a chance. Who do you see stepping up for the Vikings and being the key to the win?
