BJ Reidell (@RobertReidell), Brett Anderson (@brettAnderson87), Drew Mahowald (@DrewMahowald), Sam Neumann (@NeumSamN) and Sean Borman (@SeanBoarMan) pause at the halfway point to discuss and praise the 6-2 Minnesota Vikings. They give out midseason awards, update their preseason predictions, and predictably venture into long discussions about Teddy Bridgewater.

The Vikings vet is in the zone — a quick look at whether the Minnesota Vikings’ schedule will allow him to make a run at the NFL’s single-season record for sacks.

Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen is in good company. He is now tied with two team legends — Jared Allen and Jim Marshall — for most consecutive games with a sack. Griffen has at least one sack in all eight games this season, which is tied for the franchise record. The last time a Viking accomplished the feat, he finished a sack short of the NFL record.

That got me thinking… is Griffen capable of breaking Michael Strahan’s single-season sack record?

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings escaped London with a sloppy 33-16 win over the Cleveland Browns at Twickenham Stadium. The game looked to be in serious jeopardy early on, and the Vikes even spotted the Browns their first halftime lead of the season, but Mike Zimmer’s crew rallied and put away the upstart Lakesiders with a strong 2nd half performance in front of London crowd that was elated to finally watch a competitive football game this season.

The Minnesota Vikings are 10-point favorites for their Week 8 matchup with the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, according to MyBookie. Straight up, Minnesota is a -460 favorite while Cleveland is a +335 underdog.

Sunday’s showdown from London will feature two teams heading in opposite directions. The Vikings are winners of three straight and currently own the No. 2 seed in the NFC, just one game behind the Philadelphia Eagles. Minnesota’s defense ranks in the top five in the NFL in several categories, as it has the past few years under Mike Zimmer. Offensively, the Vikings have adequately survived despite injuries to their starting quarterback, running back and wide receiver.

Cleveland enters Sunday with an 0-7 record, joining the San Francisco 49ers as the only winless teams in the NFL this season. The Browns have cycled through three quarterbacks this season — rookie DeShone Kizer, Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan. The team announced this week that Kizer will get the start in London against arguably Cleveland’s toughest defensive test of the season. Additionally, the Browns will be without All-Pro left tackle Joe Thomas for the first time since 2006.
