#1. Get back to stopping the pass
The Minnesota Vikings are one of the most fearsome units in the NFL when it comes to stopping the pass. They are ranked #3 in allowing the fewest passing yards and have given up only 4 passing plays of 40 or more yards.
Last week was an anomaly for Minnesota. They let Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts throw for 250 yards and score two touchdowns against them on their home field of U.S. Bank Stadium in week 15.
Things won’t get easier, as Aaron Rodgers seems to be doing the right things to help his team win late in the season. However, a sub-par performance from the former MVP as well as injury concerns may play into the Vikings favor.
Veteran pass catchers Jordy Nelson and Jared Cook will be major problems, but other players like the hit-or-miss Devante Adams and dynamic Ty Montgomery will need to be accounted for if the Vikings hope to contain this dangerous offense.
