Garrett Bradbury and Oli Udoh – OL

The interior of the Vikings’ offensive line has been brutal all season long, but it was especially disappointing against Kenny Clark and the Packers. Oli Udoh was dominated by Clark, and it didn’t matter if he struck first like Cobra Kai. Clark was dominant against Udoh, eating up his initial block and then powering through him to the ball carrier. Udoh oftentimes got to Clark first and had the momentum and leverage, but it simply didn’t matter as Clark was just too much man for him to handle.

Garrett Bradbury didn’t fare much better. He was overpowered by the big man as well, getting pushed back or thrown to the side. At least Bradbury had the cool catch and run that gave the Vikings something to remember from this game, but his blocking and, more so, his inability to anchor proved again to be a major issue.

Udoh and Bradbury have been a liability all year. The Vikings look to have their future tackles on the roster and possibly their left guard, but they need to find a new center and right guard because the ones currently starting just don’t cut the mustard.
