The Vikings were back at Winter Park the day after yesterday's 38-7 defeat and this was no ordinary Monday. Given the nature of this week's schedule and playing on Thursday night, the players had a full practice today, just one of two practices the Vikings will hold before traveling to Arizona on Wednesday.
The mood in yesterday's locker room was not a good one as voiced by members of the team, but they have said that they need to leave that there and get ready for Arizona.
With just three days before the next game, it makes it easier to put a game behind you as you immediately start to prepare for the next opponent.
Veteran linebacker Jason Trusnik saw significant playing time on defense yesterday as injuries hampered the defense. As an NFL veteran, he understands what a Thursday night game means for a team.
TE Kyle Rudolph stepped up to talk about how the Vikings offense needs to improve. He mentioned that the team needs to be able to rebound when the running game isn't there and when it's time to pass, it's up to the entire team to make sure a play can be executed.
