5 Seahawks players the Vikings should worry about in Week 5
By Nik Edlund
The Minnesota Vikings take on the Seattle Seahawks this Sunday night. Here are the five Seahawks the team should be most concerned about.
The Minnesota Vikings are 1-3 and now go on the road to face an undefeated team in prime time. The Vikings seem to face the Seattle Seahawks every season and this year their quarterback has been on an MVP-like pace.
The Vikings have been playing better as of late and are coming off their first win of the season and before that lost a game by just one point against another undefeated team. While the team has gotten better since their horrendous efforts in the first couple of contests, they still have plenty of issues going on.
Their defense still gives up big plays in the passing game and their pass rush doesn’t hit home nearly as often as it has in recent seasons. On offense, the line continues to struggle and is especially loose in pass protection.
While the Seahawks defense has had their struggles this season, it is mostly because of injury. They have been hit especially hard in their secondary and will have plenty of backups seeing time this Sunday. Despite those injuries, the Seahawks are still loaded with talent. They have many players who match up favorably with the Vikings and these are the ones that will give the Purple the most trouble.
