Minnesota Vikings vs. Miami Dolphins
The (2-1) Vikings close out the preseason at U.S. Bank Stadium Thursday night against the (1-2) Miami Dolphins. The game is scheduled for 7pm CST.
The Vikings will open the regular season at home on Monday, September 11th against the New Orleans Saints.
Despite earning an exciting 32-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in their last preseason game on Sunday, the Vikings’ starting units were unimpressive in the win. Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer was not happy with the performance of his team.
Uncharacteristic mental mistakes plagued the first team defense as they allowed the 49ers to move the ball at will. The offense had a number of mistakes as well. Number one wide receiver Stefon Diggs had an off night, dropping two well-thrown passes from quarterback Sam Bradford. The offensive line starters struggled as well. Their performance led to three Bradford sacks.
The offensive starters have scored three points this preseason. While that may or may not be a reason to panic, the Vikings still have one more game to play before the regular season begins.
