What did we learn from after the Minnesota Vikings were able to get another preseason win on Saturday over the Arizona Cardinals?

All offseason long, the big talking point about the Minnesota Vikings has been their new offense under offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski and offensive advisor Gary Kubiak.

Well if Saturday’s preseason performance against the Arizona Cardinals is any indication, the Vikings’ offense still has a lot to work on during these next two weeks leading up to the regular season.

Minnesota was able to get a 20-9 win over the Cardinals, but the Vikings’ first-team offense was only responsible for seven of the team’s points during the matchup.

Minnesota’s starters only managed to gain 130 yards in the first half and 85 of these yards came on a Dalvin Cook touchdown run. Outside of Cook’s run, the Vikings’ first-team offense averaged just two yards per play against Arizona.

Unlike their first two preseason games, nothing seemed to click for Minnesota’s starting offense on Saturday. Hopefully, their performance against the Cardinals isn’t a sign of things to come for the regular season.

As for the rest of the game, what were some of the Vikings most notable moments from their preseason win over Arizona on Saturday?
