— Minnesota Vikings (@Vikings) August 28, 2018
So far, the Vikings have posted a 2-1 record in preseason play. Their first match of the preseason resulted in a dominant 42-28 beating of the Denver Broncos. Afterwards, Minnesota would taste defeat at the hands of the Jacksonville Jaguars 14-10. And in Week 3 of the preseason, the Vikings would pick up another win by defeating the Seahawks 21-20. Now they aim to close out the preseason by trampling the Titans this Thursday night. Coming off a 13-3 season, the Vikings won’t settle for anything but an NFC North title this year. They’ll have to beat out a ticked off Aaron Rodgers to do so however. But since they’re the ones that knocked out Rodgers last season, you can count on Rodgers saving something special for Minnesota.
Players to Watch: Case Keenum (3,547 passing yards, 22 TD, 7 INT), Latavius Murray (842 rushing yards, 8 TD, 1 F), and Adam Thielen (1,276 receiving yards, 4 TD, 91 REC).
Despite coming off a season in which they qualified for the playoffs, Tennessee has yet to win a game this preseason. Their first preseason contest ended in a 31-17 landslide at the hands of the Green Bay Packers. After that loss, Tennessee would be defeated once again 30-14 this time by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Their most recent preseason outing resulted in a 16-6 defeat to the Pittsburgh Steelers, their third loss of the preseason. Coming off a 9-7 season, the Titans will need a strong start to the year to convince their fan base that they will be building on last year’s success. After all, what Tennessee has shown so far in the preseason isn’t much to get you excited.
Players to Watch: Marcus Mariota (3,232 passing yards, 13 TD, 15 INT), Derrick Henry (744 rushing yards, 5 TD, 1 F), and Delanie Walker (807 receiving yards, 3 TD, 74 REC).
