Overall Grade

The Vikings’ offense got off to a blazing start in 2018, but things cooled off as defenses adjusted and the season went along.

Trust will have to be re-established between Cousins and his receivers and general manager Rick Spielman will have to get creative to bring an awful offensive line to level where it’s at least functional.

Going into the offseason, Minnesota will obviously try to add more talent (and possibly a one or two year band-aid) to their offensive line, but they will also have to try to add more weapons at tight end and possibly a third wide receiver.

Also hiring an innovative offensive mind that can help scheme Diggs and Thielen open even when they are facing double teams wouldn’t hurt.

dark. Next. Should the Vikings re-sign Anthony Barr?

Regardless, this offense has a high ceiling and the Vikings need to do everything they can to make sure they can reach it in 2019.

Offensive Grade: B-
