All eyes will be on the Vikings’ first-team offense after Head Coach Mike Zimmer said this week that he needs to see more out of the group after the unit’s play last Thursday against the Bills. The Seahawks have one of the NFL’s top defenses and the atmosphere at CenturyLink Field will be sure to provide a tough challenge for Sam Bradford and Co.
Zimmer also indicated that there could new some new combinations on the offensive line, with Riley Reiff and Alex Boone potentially sitting out due to injuries. The likes of rookie Pat Elflein, who drew praise from Zimmer and Offensive Coordinator Pat Shurmur after his play vs. the Bills, and Nick Easton figure to get plenty of snaps as the team looks to solidify the five linemen who will take the field on opening night vs. the Saints.
On the other side of the ball, Seattle’s offense put up over 40 points last week against a pretty solid Chargers team, so Zimmer and George Edwards will be tested by a diversion attack. Seattle has ruled out RB Thomas Rawls so the Vikings will get a dose of ex-Packer Eddie Lacy.
And of course, this marks the first game for former Vikings K Blair Walsh to go against his former team. Walsh was 2-2 on field goals and 6-6 on extra points during the Seahawks win in Los Angeles last weekend.
