Heading into their final week of this year’s training camp, what stood out for the Minnesota Vikings during their practice on Monday?
After stomping on the Denver Broncos in their preseason matchup on Saturday, the Minnesota Vikings were back on the practice field at the TCO Performance Center for their 14th training camp session of 2018.
The Vikings have a lot of positives to take away from their win over the Broncos. But the preseason matchup also shined a light on some things Minnesota still needs to work on in practice before the start of the regular season in a few weeks.
Special teams coach Mike Priefer will likely be making sure his punt coverage unit makes improvements this week after the Vikings gave up a return touchdown to Denver. Allowing opponents to find the end zone on special teams is not something Minnesota wants to continue into the regular season.
In preparation for their preseason showdown on Saturday, August 18, the Vikings will be holding joint practices this week in Minnesota with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Considering both squads feature physical defenses, things could get a little chippy when these two teams practice together on Wednesday and Thursday.
But for Monday, the Vikings had just a normal practice at the TCO Performance Center. What were some of the moments from the session that stood out the most?
