t You Missed Stitched Armon Watts Jersey , where each week I’ll wrap up all the news around the NFL that will affect the Vikings. And for a contending team, that’s usually a lot.***First off, before getting into any specific game action, let’s talk about the new tackling rule. Specifically, the amount of roughing the passer penalties that we had in Week 1. According to NFL Penalty Tracker, there were 15 roughing the passer penalties this week, which is the most in a single week since they started tracking penalties in 2009. And people have already started to raise concerns.Elsewhere, the Browns and Steelers played to a tie (?) and Le’Veon Bell still hasn’t reported. The Ravens beat the Bills 47-3. The Dolphins and the Titans played the longest game in NFL history. In the North...It was quite a week. I’m sure most of us tuned in to Sunday Night Football to see the Packers host the Bears, and...wow. A couple takeaways from that one: Khalil Mack is going to be a problem in the NFC North for a very, very long time.Aaron Rodgers can do some things. That fourth quarter was just something else.I don’t know if the Bears can come back from a loss like that. But Matt Nagy has a lot of weapons on offense, and the Bears look like they could make some noise in the division.We don’t know if Rodgers will play against the Vikings on Sunday. In other news, the Lions got absolutely destroyed by the Jets. Yes, the Jets. Even with a pick-six on the first play of the game, they couldn’t hang with a rookie quarterback making his first career start. Their defense looked awful, and the Jets could pretty much do anything they wanted in all three phases. It’s only been a game and we shouldn’t overreact, but the Lions looked as bad as any team in the NFL besides the Bills.Ex-Vikings quarterback reportWhat a debut for Case Keenum! Seattle might be primed for a down year Armon Watts Minnesota Vikings Jerseys , but Keenum helped lead the Broncos to a 27-24 win over Russell Wilson and the Seahawks to start off his Denver career with a win. Keenum threw for 329 yards and three touchdowns, although he did toss three interceptions as well. His TD throw to Demaryius Thomas, which proved to be the game-winner, was placed perfectly around a Seahawks defender. I’m wishing Keenum all the best, so it’s nice to see him get off to a good start while also taking down an NFC team.Meanwhile, Sam Bradford didn’t fare so well. The former Vikings QB threw for 153 yards with an interception and no touchdowns as Arizona lost 24-6 to Washington. Josh Rosen will continue to loom behind Bradford if he can’t win some games. And also in this one...Adrian Peterson, who used to do some things for the Vikings, ran for 96 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries. Contender alert!Despite a 18-12 win over the Falcons, the Eagles did not look good in the season opener on Thursday night. Nick Foles looked like the old Nick Foles, and they clearly miss Alshon Jeffrey. It’s also important to remember they lost both their Offensive Coordinator and their QB coach (the latter, John DeFilippo, is now the Vikings OC), so their offense could very realistically take a step back. On the other side of this game, the Falcons have a lot of problems. Offensively, Matt Ryan just doesn’t look like the guy who won NFL MVP in 2016. Defensively, the Falcons were already in trouble Minnesota Vikings Jerseys Stitched , and then they lost Keanu Neal for the season with a torn ACL.The Rams won their opener after a rocky start against the Jon Gruden-led Raiders, and the Saints were very surprisingly outgunned by Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Bucs in a shootout. As is usually the case, New Orleans needs to figure out some things on defense. Especially, you know, at safety. When there’s 10 seconds left. Alright, that’s it for What You Missed’s inaugural edition. Let me know if there’s other stuff you want to see here, and we’ll be back next week!Vikings fantasy/stat projections for Week 4 Is it ever easy with this team? Asking for a friend.There is no telling what the Vikings trip to Los Angeles will bring. An incompetent offensive line has to deal with Aaron Donald, Ndamukong Suh, and Michael Brockers. Sure, Aqib Talib is out, and Marcus Peters is not likely to play, and if he does, he will be hampered. But it won’t matter what corners are lined up against Thielen and Diggs, it doesn’t seem as though Cousins will have time to find them the ball anyway. The running game? Nonexistent for the most part this season. The biggest question one must ask about this team is where there heads are at right now. It’s not just the absence of Everson Griffen, it’s everything surrounding it. Nobody knows if he’ll play this season, or ever again. They sure looked like a distracted team on Sunday Armon Watts Jersey nfl draft , and there is little reason to believe this team can do anything against the Rams. Then again, there was little reason to believe the Bills would do what they did in U.S. Bank Stadium in Week 3.Let’s dive in:Kirk Cousins projected stats: 27-46, 267 yards, 2 touchdowns, 1 interception, 1 fumbleBreakdown: Cousins was pressured in some form on more than half of his drop backs against the Bills. The Vikings did very little to improve their offensive line in the offseason, and it has shown in all three games so far. Cousins has been sacked, hit, and harassed on at least every other offensive drive. Along with that, the running game has done nothing to help him, something that many analysts and fans thought would be a huge help to him, and something he didn’t have in Washington. But it would go entirely against the run of play this season to believe Cousins won’t have big struggles in Los Angeles, and have to throw way more than he should once again.Running Backs (Combination of whoever plays, pending the health of Dalvin Cook) Projected stats: 14 carries, 59 yards.Breakdown: Dalvin Cook only averaged 3 yards per carry in the first two weeks of the season. While the 49ers and Packers have some talent in their respective front seven’s, neither squad possess what the Rams have. In last season’s matchup Custom Armon Watts Jersey , the Vikings dominated the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball in the 2nd half. The Rams responded by signing Suh, and improving the scheme of their offensive line. Simply put, I have zero faith the Vikings will get anything going in the running game at all.Adam Thielen: 10 catches, 98 yardsStefon Diggs: 6 catches, 77 yards, 1 touchdownBreakdown: As stated earlier, I don’t believe it matters what defensive backs line up on Thielen and Diggs. I just don’t believe Cousins will have adequate time to throw in the pocket. Rams defensive coordinator Wade Phillips is masterful at getting pressure, and this game should be no different. It’s sad that entering Week 4, it is a a time filled with more question marks than a year ago. Troubling to say the least.Kyle Rudolph: 8 catches, 89 yards, 1 touchdownBreakdown: The Rams have a group of no-name linebackers. Their linebackers could also spend a lot of time bracketing Thielen and Diggs to compensate for the absence of Talib and Peters. This could mean Kyle Rudolph is in for a big day. He seems to have decent chemistry with Cousins, and he looks crisp running his routes this season. I feel he’s been a bit better than I thought he would be, but I don’t think he himself can alter the outcome in L.A.Prayers up for Everson Griffen. Get well soon.
