The Minnesota Vikings play the Cleveland Browns at home this Sunday in a matchup that will give a good indication of where the Vikings are currently as a team.
The Vikings currently have a 1-2 record after a much-needed win against the Seattle Seahawks. In that win, the Vikings were led by quarterback Kirk Cousins who was on fire as the Vikings took care of business beating them 30-17. Cousins played on of the best games of his career. The offensive line kept the pocket clean, Alexander Mattison picked up the load for an injured Dalvin Cook, and Cousins took care of the rest by delivering dimes to his receivers and tight ends all game.
The Vikings have another big test this Sunday as former quarterbacks coach Kevin Stefanski is bringing his Cleveland Browns back to Minnesota. This is an important game for both teams if they want to make a run at the playoffs and ultimately the Super Bowl.
The Browns’ offense has been fairly average and their defense is the strong suit of their team. This is contrary to the Vikings where their defense is their weakness and their offense has been their strong suit.
Even though they have been struggling, they made some adjustments at halftime during the Seahawks game. The defense looked the best they have all season after that. Hopefully, that is something they can continue to build on going forward. The offense is playing well but they will need more help from the defense if this is going to be a playoff team.
