Get caught up on the week that was at Winter Park leading into Sunday's game against the Falcons:
Monday, September 22
After a tough loss on Sunday against the Saints, the focus shifted to Teddy Bridgewater, who of course took over and played well in place of an injured Matt Cassel on Sunday. Mike Wobschall addressed fan questions regarding Teddy and other topics in the Monday Morning Mailbag.
Wobschall also looked at Teddy's regular season debut inside the film room:
Head Coach Mike Zimmer talked about Teddy taking over and the game as a whole in his day-after press conference:
The NFL Network crew examined the Vikings future with Teddy at the helm:

Wobschall started the day off by looking at '3 Lessons, 3 Questions' on the heels of Sunday's game vs. the Saints.
All four segments from Sunday's "Beyond The Gridiron" were posted, including looking at Brandon Fusco's roommate: his twin brother.
This week's 'Pick 6 Video Mailbag' looked at several topics, including what Teddy can look to improve on moving forward.
Thanks to the Vikings PR crew, we provided an early Game Preview of Sunday's game at TCF Bank Stadium against the Falcons.

Wednesday, September 24
The day got off to a rough start of sorts with the Vikings makings several roster moves due to the injuries sustained in Sunday's loss. Read about those here.
Wobschall turned the page full to the Falcons by taking a look at five key storylines to follow.

Two of the main areas that Zimmer said needed addressing this week were the offense's performance in the red zone and the defense doing better on third downs. Wobschall takes a closer look at that here.
With the rash of injuries and absenses, it's been talked about all week that players will need to step up? Who exactly? Wobschall gives his list here.
Devin Hester has burned the Vikings on seemingly an annual basis, and even though he's no longer in the NFC North the Vikings still are forced to deal with him this Sunday. Wobschall examines how to attack him.
The three Vikings coordinators addressed the media on Thursday, including of course Norv Turner, who talked about ways to manufacture touches for Cordarrelle Patterson, Bridgewater's first career start, and more.
Speaking of Patterson, he addressed the media from the locker room before practice:

Will the Falcons try to bring pressure via the blitz to throw Bridgewater off his game? Seems to make sense. Wobschall looks at that topic here.
