Load the Box: Vikings Position Battles

Load the Box: Position Battles
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports.

Jordan and Will talk about the main takeaways from the Vikings’ preseason Week 1 loss to the Raiders and what to look for in the upcoming game against San Francisco.

They share their impressions and concerns regarding the backup QB position, from Mond to Mannion to the trade market. They share excitement for the depth at RB, and discuss how the emergence of Ty Chandler may make Alexander Mattison a trade chip. There’s a lot to be encouraged about at WR, but there are considerable question marks on who will take the next step and emerge as the fourth, fifth, and sixth options. Finally, who starts Week 1 opposite Patrick Peterson at corner?
