Finally, Minnesota Vikings football to talk about that doesn’t come in Twitter/Vine/Periscope form (no offense everyone who did a great job covering training camp). Actual Minnesota Vikings football was on our televisions tonight, however, and nothing tops that.
Here are some notes from how the starters did in limited action in Canton tonight:
A Robert Blanton tackle on a well diagnosed screen play followed by a nice Xavier Rhodes run defense play set the Vikings defense up with a third and long on Pittsburgh’s first drive which got even longer on a third down delay of game penalty. The Steelers resorted to another screen play on third down, but despite plenty of room, the Vikings defense closed in quickly to force the punt.
