Adam Warwas presents five bold predictions for today’s Vikings versus Titans game.

How’d you sleep? Yeah, me neither.

The much anticipated start of the 2016 Minnesota Vikings season is just hours away, with the first stop being Tennessee, and I think we here at Vikings Territory have hit about every storyline from about every angle… sometimes at an admittedly excessive rate. What can I say? The whole gang of contributors here loves their Minnesota Vikings.

Now it is time for our collective offseason analysis, our breakdowns of a paper roster, to take to the actual turf in pursuit of greatness. The Teddy Bridgewater disaster will doubtless have a rippling impact throughout the season, voiding some of our offseason projections, but that won’t stop us from trying to shake the magic eight ball in search of hope and optimism.

Here are five bold predictions, largely based on my own stated opinions from this offseason, for what could unfold on the field today.

Football is here! Finally a meaningful game for the Minnesota Vikings!

So let’s talk fantasy.

Obviously, the announcement of Shaun Hill starting at quarterback for the Vikings on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans will have an impact on the performance of some of Minnesota’s top offensive players. The production of the Vikings’ rushing attack should get a boost, but the team’s passing offense might be pretty hard to watch this weekend.

Vikings Versus Titans Preview With Terry Lambert

There are plenty of questions left unanswered about this 2016 Minnesota Vikings team, especially in the wake of all the quarterback happenings, but with one day left until the season opener it is time to recognize that the makeup of this team is only half of the equation that will determine the final record. The other half of the equation is how the enemy performs in battle.

Today, we welcome Terry Lambert of Music City Miracles who was kind enough to answer five pressing questions about our first opponent of 2016: The Tennessee Titans.

Lambert is in his second full season of Titans coverage, is very in tune with the team, and keeps up with all of the daily news impacting that team. You can check out all of their content heading into Sunday by following them on Twitter (@TitansMCM) and by following Terry personally (@TLambertFB).

For each week of the entire 2016 season, Vikings Territory will be offering up some suggestions for the Minnesota Vikings to take into consideration as they prepare for for their upcoming game. It is a way to try and emphasize the possible keys to victory during each week of the regular season.

The Vikings are opening their season in Tennessee this Sunday to face off against the Titans. Less than two weeks ago, Minnesota’s strategy to beat the Titans was likely something completely different than it currently is now.

But a whole season can change in a matter of seconds and it did just that when quarterback Teddy Bridgewater went down with a season-ending knee injury on August 30th. Now it is up to Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer and the rest of the team to pick up the pieces and still pursue this team’s ultimate goal of winning a Super Bowl.

Minnesota Vikings - Tennessee Titans

Actual football football starts this Sunday for the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings as they head down to the Country Music and BBQ Capital o’ the World to take on the Tennessee Titans. To help us preview the opposition, Sharona (Inside the Pylon, NFL Female) joins us for a segment to talk about her Titans and how they look to matchup against the Zimmer Hellfire Defense and the two-headed monster of Sam Bradford and Shaun Hill.

Even though who’s actually going to play quarterback is still a question mark, later on in the show I look at the laundry list of strengths the Vikings bring to the table (defense, running game) that could carry the day on Sunday. …And also a few weaknesses that could start the season off with an L for the Skoldiers of Fortune (SOMEONE PLEASE COVER DELANIE WALKER.)

All that and other “Exotic Smash Mouth is soooooo 2003” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!
