Minnesota Vikings: Final preseason game against the Titans

For most teams in the NFL, the fourth and final preseason game involves their starters playing very few snaps, even they even see the field. This shouldn’t be any different for the Minnesota Vikings when they travel to Tennessee to take on the Titans on Thursday at 7 PM CT. Most of the starters will probably watch from the sidelines, letting the 2nd and 3rd string players get most...

The offseason presents a ray of sunshine across the NFL landscape. Each team is presented with a clean slate and a golden opportunity to fill various holes through the draft and free agency.

With the Green Bay Packers emerging victorious despite just a 8-7-1 record, it’s hard to make the argument that this division is one of the best in football. But I’m going to do just that. Last year was a down year for the North, mostly due to a high level of parity and Aaron Rodgers‘ broken collarbone. Sure, the defenses...
