Another exciting weekend of NFL football is on the horizon and the Vikings figure to be right in the middle of it, with the status of quarterback Sam Bradford up in the air and preparing for the second home game of the season as one of nine home underdogs on the Week 3 slate. The Wobcast is here to break it all down and to have a chat with rookie running back Dalvin Cook, who is off to an impressive start in the NFL.
02:36: Dalvin Cook joins
We asked Dalvin what it was like playing in his first NFL game and playing in front of a raucous U.S. Bank Stadium crowd, and we also chatted with him about what it was like playing with Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston for a season at Florida State. And finally, Cook explains what his first career touchdown and "the chicken noodle" have in common.
10:45: A big and mean Bucs defensive front among the top storylines of the week
Corso and I go over five big storylines to watch this week as the Vikings and Buccaneers prepare to battle. Among them is how the Vikings offensive line will fare against a Tampa Bay defensive line that features one of the best defensive tackles in the NFL – Gerald McCoy. Vikings Radio Network analyst Pete Bercich broke down film of McCoy and fellow defensive lineman William Gholston in the film segment of Vikings GamePlan this week.
15:00: Know Your Enemy
Winston, Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson, OJ Howard and many others are big-time threats to Vikings success on Sunday. Corso breaks it all down to help you know the enemy a little better and he also highlights a matchup of the week – and it's NOT Xavier Rhodes versus Mike Evans.
We get bullish on Vikings sacks, forced turnovers and explosive plays.
24:03: Fan Mail
Jaleel Johnson being inactive, perspective even in loss at Pittsburgh and two stats that stood out last week are included in three fan emails we address toward the end of the show.
