If the Minnesota Vikings are going to start the 2022 season with a 2-0 record, they must fix a few things first before they face the Philadelphia Eagles.

Overall, the Minnesota Vikings looked very impressive in their Week 1 victory over the Green Bay Packers. However, the Vikings still have a few things that they can patch up before taking on the Philadelphia Eagles next Monday in a Week 2 showdown.

With how well Minnesota played last Sunday, some of their weaknesses weren’t as glaring. But let’s not forget that the Vikings almost gave up a long touchdown on the opening play of the Packers’ first offensive drive of the game. Luckily for Minnesota though, the jitters of Green Bay rookie receiver Christian Watson got the best of him, and any easy touchdown catch slipped right through his hands.

Against the Eagles in Week 2, the Vikings probably aren’t going to get as lucky if they let any Philadelphia pass-catchers blow by them as Watson did last weekend.

This is more of an under-the-radar problem that Minnesota needs to fix before next Monday, but what are some of the bigger problems for the Vikings to try and fix before their Week 2 contest with the Eagles?
