Vikings interior offensive line vs. Chris Jones

The Vikings have already played against some of the best defensive tackles in the NFL, but this week, they are facing arguably the best at the position.

Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones is one of the biggest one-man wrecking crews in the entire league, and he is going up against one of the worst units in the NFL in Minnesota's interior offensive line.

The Vikings will have starting center Garrett Bradbury back this week, and they will need all the help they can get.

While it is not likely at all that Minnesota will be able to completely stop Jones, they need to at least slow him down if they want any chance of winning.

If the Vikings can't slow down Jones, it is going to be a long day for their offense, especially quarterback Kirk Cousins and his already beat and battered ribs.

It may take the entire interior offensive line to slow down Jones, and even then, it may be a struggle, but for Minnesota's sake, let's hope they can pull it off.
