The Vikings rebounded off an ugly loss to San Francisco Week 1, and the team now has two wins under its belt. As encouraging as it was to see Minnesota defeat Detroit and San Diego in back-to-back home games, Week 4 offers to be the biggest test yet for the Vikings: playing Peyton Manning and the Broncos on their home turf.

I think it’s safe to say that if the Vikings can beat Denver, they will receive some serious attention.

In case you’re wondering, the Broncos boast an incredible 23-2 home record since signing Manning in 2012. Sunday’s afternoon game will be a challenge, and it will be interesting to see how Mike Zimmer and his squad respond. Let’s take a look at how Minnesota’s offense matches up against Denver.

The Vikings got back to .500 after defeating the Lions in their home opener, and the general morale of the coaching staff and team seems (understandably) much higher than it did following Week 1.

Both teams are 1-1, and while the Vikings will be playing their second consecutive home game, this will be the Chargers’ second road game in a row. The Vikings, who have a 5-6 record all-time against the Chargers, last played San Diego in Week 1 of the 2011 season, a 24-17 Charger win. Before then, the teams hadn’t met since 2007, in which Adrian Peterson set the NFL single-game rushing record with 296 yards en route to a win.

Heading into Week 3, what does the offensive match up look like between Minnesota and San Diego?


Offensive Line

Although the offensive line has some weak spots due to injuries, previous-concern Matt Kalil has had a great start to his season.

Carl: Justin Trattou’s interception
The 27 year-old undrafted four-year veteran from Florida only has one tackle in the stats column this season for the Vikings. The backup defensive end has played a whopping six total snaps, all verse the Lions in week two. Believe it or not though, he stands alone atop they Vikings’ leader board in the interceptions category. Maybe he was just in the right place at the right time, but his fourth quarter pick with just over 12 minutes to play gets my vote for biggest play of the game. With the Vikings up by 13, Stafford targets Eric Ebron in the left flat on a 1st-and-10 from midfield. Trattou didn’t rush the passer, nor did he drop back into coverage. With help from Andrew Sendejo covering the tight end, Trattou was able to simple slid into Stafford’s throwing lane and get his hands up in the air. I’m not sure how he made the catch, but his INT and 11 yard return was huge as it deflated the Lions while setting up the Vikings final scoring drive.
