Emmanuel Lamur Steps Up in Place of an Injured Anthony Barr

The Minnesota Vikings have played exceptional defense through six weeks of the 2017 NFL season.

This isn’t a secret. Minnesota ranks atop the league in rush yards per game allowed (3rd), total yards per game allowed (5th) and points per game allowed (5th). Moreover, many of the yards the Vikings defense has sacrificed in coverage this season have come during garbage time, suggesting that this unit could be even better than the statistics may suggest.

Simply put, Minnesota’s defense has performed at an extremely high level with both the film and statistics reinforcing this notion. One of the greatest reasons for this is the unit’s collective ability to maintain good coverage in the secondary, tackle effectively, limit yards after catch and, specifically as of late, create turnovers.

Let’s take a look at how Harrison Smith, Xavier Rhodes and Co. performed both against the Green Bay Packers during Week 6 and collectively across the season to date.

Purple FTW! Podcast: Vikings Raiding Party feat. Daniel House (ep. 437)

Optimism is a weird feeling, isn’t it? The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings are in first place, the offensive line isn’t a sieve, the Zimmer Hellfire Defense is playing at a Top-5 level, and Teddy Dave Bridgewater is set to return to practice today. I’m not comfortable with this level of good vibes. To help comfort me, I brought in 1500 ESPN Boss Daniel House (@DanielHouseNFL) to discuss the current Vikings outlook, preview the Baltimore Ravens (The Chester Taylor Bowl), and if we can bury the Green Bay Packers (spoiler: no).
