Most Vikings Starters Will Play in Final Preseason Game vs Chiefs
Mike Zimmer was much happier about the play he saw from his defensive starters in the Minnesota Vikings second preseason game last Saturday vs the Colts. His offense, on the other hand, looked a bit disheveled. The head coach commented earlier this week about the need for that side of the ball to take and hit on shots downfield, “If you’re going to throw 5-yard check downs, it’s going to take 20 of them.”
No matter, Zim told media early Wednesday afternoon that we’ll see a lot of starters play on both sides of the ball for the third and final preseason game this Friday night in Kansas City. Expect to see something much like what we saw last weekend. Hopefully with more success, though.

Cousins and the starting offense got three series’ together on Saturday, before Zimmer pulled them off the field for the night. Kirk went 5/7 for 23 yards, a sack and 75.3 QB Rating. Minnesota Vikings fans hope to see their QB get in more of a rhythm on Friday night. The real thing is only two weeks away.
