How can the Minnesota Vikings get their first win of the season at home against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3?

Two devastating losses in a row have created a dark cloud over the Minnesota Vikings. With the Seattle Seahawks coming to Minnesota in Week 3, how can they get their first win of the season? Seattle has shown some clear holes over their first two games of the season and has a 1-1 record to show for it.

A brutal collapse at the hands of the Tennessee Titans last week set the Seahawks back a step as they head to Minnesota. The Vikings, who have had two last-second finishes already, will have to be prepared for Russell Wilson and that high-powered offense.

With the blueprint that has been laid out through two games for each side, we can navigate a few ways the Vikings can take down Seattle. The hot hand of Kirk Cousins has helped Minnesota stay in games so far and that will have to continue all season.

Who else needs to step up for the Minnesota Vikings, specifically when they line up across from Seattle?
