It has been a rather uninspiring preseason for the Minnesota Vikings.

Between the first-team offense mustering a grand total of three points and the first-team defense allowing multiple long touchdown drives, the Vikings have given fans few reasons for optimism heading into the regular season. The preseason should never be taken too seriously, but Minnesota definitively failed with regard to adding to a hype train that was buzzing around draft time.

The projected starters took a backseat to the bubble players in Vikings’ final preseason matchup against the Miami Dolphins at U.S. Bank Stadium, and the result was a lot of the same. Vikings quarterback Taylor Heinicke struggled with his accuracy while Dolphins wide receiver Jakeem Grant torched Minnesota’s secondary en route to a 30-9 Miami victory on Thursday night.

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.
