Vikings’ D-Line vs. Bears’ O-line is the thing to watch in today’s game. The big deal is that veteran defensive tackle Kevin Williams is planning on returning from him hyperextension and bone bruise in his right knee injury. Coach Leslie Frazier seem confident in Williams’ ability to bounce back quickly and they’ll need him after getting schematically beat down by Lions’ running backs in Week 1.
The Bears are going to be looking at how the Lions’ stunted and fooled the Vikings’ intense pass rush off the edges. Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford often got the ball out of his hands in three-step drops. Bears’ quarterback Jay Cutler said “that’s the idea” while talking to local media this week and it’ll be key for the Vikings’ interior linemen to read screens and not let the Bears’ offensive linemen release free to the next level.
The Vikings need this win. To start 0-2 in this division would be a absolute nightmare, It is time for Ponder and company to dig deep to win.
