5 takeaways from the Vikings’ preseason win over the Seahawks
By Adam Patrick
Inside U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday night, the Minnesota Vikings were able to get their second victory of the 2019 preseason by defeating the Seattle Seahawks.
With Sunday night’s win over the Seattle Seahawks, the Minnesota Vikings are now just two more preseason matchups away from their regular season opener inside U.S. Bank Stadium against the Atlanta Falcons.
Just as they did last week, the Vikings came out out of Sunday’s preseason game with a win. The matchup was tied at the half, but Minnesota was able to pull away from the Seahawks in the final two quarters and leave the field with a 25-19 victory.
It didn’t seem like the Vikings really dominated the game on Sunday, but they actually ended up finishing the night with 409 total yards. Minnesota also gained over 400 total yards in their preseason win over the New Orleans Saints last week.
The Vikings’ defense had some forgettable moments on Sunday. But they also didn’t allow Seattle’s offense to find the end zone at all during the game, so they definitely weren’t terrible.
Now that the dust has settled though, what are some of the biggest takeaways from Minnesota’s second victory of the 2019 preseason?
