#1. Take advantage of the Colts OL
Fans of the Minnesota Vikings know that the team’s struggles on the offensive line has been a major contributor in the ineffectiveness of the team to put points on the scoreboard during the 2016 NFL season.
The Colts have been struggling as well, with three offensive lineman on injured reserve (Jack Mewhort, Isiah Cage, and Hugh Thornton). Mewhort was a starter before the start of the year and Thornton was his backup at left guard.
Indianapolis’ situation gets worse when looking at their early injury reports. The Colts have two offensive tackles missing some practice time, as Joe Reitz sat out practice and Denzelle Good was limited.
This could be a feast for the Vikings defensive ends, who have been rejuvenated toward the end of the season. Brian Robison, Everson Griffen, and Vikings leading sack leader Danielle Hunter should all be licking their chops coming into this game, since the Colts are tied for allowing the second most sacks in the league (40).
