Good morning Horners! Vikings vs Titans is scheduled to take place at US Bank Stadium tomorrow and it will provide an opportunity for our favorite team to have a gut check. Yes, after an 0-2 start being thoroughly beaten by the Packers and the Colts, the mighty purple under Mike Zimmer and Gary Kubiak have to put a patched together team on the field to show us fans something. Can the team get a win? Well, anything is possible on any given Sunday, as the old saying goes.
Tennessee with roll in under the leadership of Mike Vrabel who had the Titans just a Patrick Mahomes away from the Super Bowl last season. Ryan Tannehill is coming off the best season of his career has the likes of Jonnu Smith, one of the league’s better tight ends, and his TE2, former Viking MyCole Pruitt and wide receivers like A.J. Brown, Adam Humphries and Corey Davis to catch his passes, but the biggest threat being Derrick Henry and his expected 100+ yard game. It will be a tough test for a depleted and young defense of the Vikings.
Injuries, especially on the defensive side of the ball are stacking up with the latest being Mike Hughes and new neck issue. The cornerbacks are still missing Cameron Dantzler and his rib injury. Expect Kris Boyd to get a good chunk of snaps unless his ‘questionable’ hamstring keeps him out too. The linebacker corps is quickly being depleted too. Since Anthony Barr is on season ending IR and rookie Troy Dye has been ruled out with a foot injury, the Vikings signed Todd Davis, and the 28 year old linebacker that led the Broncos in tackles the last couple of years. He was released early this year by them due to a calf injury and a little cap savings. Hopefully he can spin up soon.
