The Minnesota Vikings are looking to bounce back after their Week 2 loss in Green Bay. Here are five Vikings to watch in Week 3 versus the Raiders.
The Vikings are looking to redeem themselves and answer any questions of doubt among their fans this week against the Oakland Raiders. The Vikings got down early against the Packers last week but fought their way back to make it a game but came up short in the end.
There were plenty of Vikings who stood out both positively and negatively in that contest. The running game was once again humming thanks to Dalvin Cook and the offensive line. The Vikings ended up passing much more than they did against the Falcons but the results were mixed at best.
If Minnesota is going to get back in the win column this week they’ll need some of their big weapons on both sides of the ball to show up. Offensively, they’ll need to continue to run the ball well, have better decisions from the quarterback, and give him better protection.
Defensively, they’ll need to shut down the run and get healthier in the secondary, which hopefully happens with the return of Mike Hughes this week. That being said, here are five Vikings to watch this Sunday against the Raiders.
