As a person who isn't a Vikings fan, but despises the Eagles (but is a huge Carson Wentz fan), I will join my fellow Twins fans, who are also Vikings fans, in rooting for the Vikings this weekend.

Could use some offensive line help.... But I still think they will win.

One of the best opening day rosters in years. Now go get 'em.

Not many will agree, I'm sure. But, this team has made it this far in spite of Keenum.

In spite of Schumur and this lame, overly conservative, offense. Imo

I disagree. I think Schumer has done an amazing job.
Can only do so much when you're given Case Keenum at QB.

Absolutely awful tackling on that drive.
Need to clean that up asap if they want to stay in this one.

I think Keenum has his moments both good and bad, but I had a feeling he was going to do something reckless when it was third and long and was not surprised when he through the interception.I was a little more surprised when no one seemed to be able to stop the player as he zig zagged his way to a touch down.

Zero yard passes on third down? Just way too conservative for me.

Yeah, to be clear, I like Keenum. I think he's got leadership qualities, and he plays with a chip on his shoulder.
But, I think he's probably in the bottom third of the league. I rarely see him make any throws that every QB couldn't make, and I think above average QB could put up some huge numbers with the talent on this offense.

Uh. He was hit as he threw it. Not his fault. The delta right now is QB pressure.

He was, but it was front side pressure. Can't make that throw when you know you're going to get hit as you throw. Chuck it into the third row, or take the sack and live another down.

Ugh, just ugly all around.
Might be time to start accounting for the blitzer? That's three times already a guy has had a free blitz.

And the last one? Hard to believe the team that never drafts OL really doesn't have one.....

That was a terrible blocking scheme.

The o line is blocking good enough, IMO. Most of the pressure has been unaccounted blitzes.

One team can block, the other can't. Simple game, really
