After suffering their first loss of the season last week, the Minnesota Vikings head back home this Sunday to try and get back on track.
What has gone on during the past week and a half with the Minnesota Vikings would seem out of the ordinary for most NFL franchises. But for the Vikings, 2017 is just another season full of the expected unexpected.
Minnesota was forced to start backup Case Keenum at quarterback last week and the result was a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
It was not the loss that was too surprising about last Sunday, but it was more of how the Vikings played as a whole. A week after playing a great season opener against the New Orleans Saints, Minnesota looked like a totally different team in Pittsburgh.
But that was last week and the Vikings are now focused on their next opponent this Sunday in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Which players on their roster does Minnesota need to perform well in Week 3 in order to improve their record to 2-1 this year?
