The Vikings are looking to avoid a 0-3 start for the 1st time since 2011, and want to repeat their 2008 effort and earn a playoff spot despite the 0-2 start.
The first two weeks of the Vikings season have been dismal to say the least but they are now facing the Cleveland Browns, a team who has pretty much given up all hope for a winning season and has started to focus on next year’s potential draft picks.
The Browns have given up so much that they have decided to start third string quarterback Brian Hoyer en lieu of second string Jason Campbell. And in a stunning move earlier this week running back Trent Richardson was traded to Indianapolis for a higher number draft pick.
While the Browns offense is shot, they do have a good defense, but how motivated do you suppose players are going to be at this point? This should be an easy game for the Vikings, should be being the opportune word. The Browns are defenseless and the Vikings now have to step up their game to get into the Win column for the first time this season.
