1. No-huddle offense

The San Diego Chargers like to employ an up-tempo no-huddle/muddle huddle offense that keeps defenses on their heels.

The no-huddle looks could be extra-challenging for the Vikings who like to substitute a lot, especially on the defensive line.

Mike Zimmer loves swapping in different linebackers and D-linemen in order to exploit matchups but he might not be able to do that as much as he wants if the Chargers are moving the ball and getting to the line quickly.

Zimmer thinks that the fans can help out by being loud and disrupting the Chargers (via 1500ESPN):

"“We’re going to need our fans this week, especially with the no-huddle offense that they run, the muddle huddle and the communication,” Zimmer said. “I think they can really help us by being loud this Sunday.”"

So make sure you get extra drunk before the game. Mike Zimmer needs you rowdy so you can be loud and disrupt Philip Rivers while he’s at the line doing his reads and calling his checks.

I recommend starting the night before and just staying up all night drinking.
