Minnesota will finally have their starting offensive line

You know the game they play on the Jumbotron where they place a ball under a hat? Then they bring in two more hats and some guy who’s had too much to drink has to figure out where the ball is?

That’s how the Vikings have put together their offensive line this season.

With several different combinations, it’s reasonable if Viking fans don’t want to see any more changes in the trenches. But with Christian Darrisaw not listed on the final injury report, it’s possible Minnesota finally has its starting five.

Garrett Bradbury has been more aggressive after his return to the starting lineup and Mason Cole has supplanted Oli Udoh at right guard. With Brian O’Neill and Ezra Cleveland locking down their respective positions, it gives the Vikings a chance to build some chemistry down the stretch.

This could be coming too late and it’s probably not a solution for next year’s team. But Darrisaw’s return can only mean good things.
