Minnesota Vikings - Jakcsonville Jaguars

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings completed the first 25% of Operation Win Out, downing the Jacksonville Jaguars 25-16 Sunday at Historic Everbank Field. Sam Bradford and the offense opened things up deep, but still had familiar short-yardage struggles that kept this game closer than it should have been. Oh, and the defense is still pretty pretty pretty good.

Talkers Include:
• I Love that the Offense Went YOLO
• The Mandatory Offensive Line Talking Point
• The Defense is Rock Solid Still
• Anthony Harris Evaluation
• The Matt Asiata Experience
• Pay Adam Thielen
• Xavier Rhodes Kinda Got Hot
• More Injuries
• Playoff Picture
• Loose Thoughts

The Minnesota Vikings will face off against the Jacksonville Jaguars without one of their best, Harrison Smith.

There are no major surprises this week on the Vikings inactives for their game in Jacksonville against the Jaguars.

Though it was anticipated Marcus Sherels would suit up for today’s game, thus spawning this excellent article by Austin Belisle, the homegrown punt return specialist will miss his fourth game of the last five weeks.

Harrison Smith, who is dealing with a left ankle injury, will also miss today’s game. His spot will be filled by Anthony Harris who will be making his first start of the season.

It is now or never for the Minnesota Vikings and their 2016 playoff chances. Every remaining game this season is a must-win for the Vikings, even this Sunday against the 2-10 Jacksonville Jaguars.

At first glance, this seems like an easy win for Minnesota as the Jaguars have not won a game since Week 6. But this is the Vikings we are talking about and anyone who has spent more than a second rooting for this team knows that almost anything is capable of happening when Minnesota takes the field.

Besides preventing head coach Mike Zimmer from tearing his other eye out this weekend, there are a few things that the Vikings should emphasize in order to ensure a better outcome than what Hillary Clinton had in the state of Florida back in November.

Minnesota Vikings-Jacksonville Jaguars

At the quarter pole, the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings are in full win-or-die mode as they enter Week 14. Mike Zimmer returns to the team after missing the Dallas game due to emergency surgery on his retina and hopes to rally the Purple for one gallant rush towards the postseason. To chew the fat, I brought in my man Luke Inman to the Blue Door Pub to run through what the Vikes need to do to make chicken salad out of 2016.
