Vikes will demolish the Colts. The Colts have major problems all over the place and everyone on the Vikes from the head coach on down to the equipment manager will be looking to get the stank of the Green Bay game off them. Even with the help of NASA we couldn't possibly design a QB more perfectly vulnerable to our defense than Philip Rivers. Rivers might get benched on week 3.

Vikes 38
Colts 10

OMG Indy is favored by 3. Bet the house on the Vikes. And your neighbor's house.

I wish I shared your optimism. No pass rush. The interior OL was even worse than I expected (and I expected really, really bad). Some things need to be fixed right away in practice or this season is going to over before it gets started.

Indy was one of about three or four teams this past weekend that looked like a hot mess waiting to happen.

First off, their quarterback can't throw the ball deep any more and the Vikings are pretty good when the play is in front of them. Aaron Rodgers burned the Vikings over the top, and that won't happen this week.

I say take the Vikings and the points. However, take the under (48). I see a lot of field goals in this one.

Vikings 23
Colts 16

I think we will win by 7, but I would take the over. Both defenses looked rusty on Sunday.

The Colts have major problems all over the place

As do we.

#Vikings, who play at Indianapolis on Sunday, have never beaten the Colts on the road, having gone 0-11. They are 0-3 in Indianapolis after having gone 0-8 in Baltimore, where the Colts played until moving to Indy in 1984. Minnesota's last visit to Indy was in 2012, a 23-20 loss,

The only caveat is that Rivers is 1-3 against us. However, if we lack a pass rush and continue to play a soft cover 2 even Rivers can pick us apart. Colts have an excellent oline.

Zim always goes on and on about proper technique nuances with the db's, but he never just puts the them in a position to check receivers at the los. Disrupt the guy before he gets into his route. It doesn't seem too hard, but he's the cb whisperer, so I'm probably wrong.

I think Zim has a hard time tweaking his system to fit his players skills. That is why rookies rarely play in his system.....they have to re-learn how to do things the Zim way or else.

Problem is, it's a team game.

Ugh.

2 bad runs and then plenty of time on 3rd down, but couldn’t do anything.

If I were Indy or any other opponent I would throw stunts, blitzes, and games at the IOL until they show they can handle it.

Must of been.

Don't get anything from the announcers, seem like they just got the call to work this game this morning. Ham is a TE now.

Yup. It sounds like we got the on-call team and they are working on no sleep or prep.
