Souhan; Vikings Could Still be 2nd Best NFC North Team [PODCAST]
The Vikings won 31-23 at Houston against the Texans Sunday to improve to 1-3. The Bears and Lions both lost Sunday. Star Tribune Sports Columnist Jim Souhan thinks the Vikings could over take both the Lions and Bears and finish 2nd in the NFC North. Jim says the Lions are a mess on defense while the Bears are shaky on offense despite their 3-1 record. The Vikings had 3 players go over either 100 yards rushing or 100 yards receiving Sunday. The 3 were Dalvin Cook (130 yards rushing), Adam Theilen (114 yards receiving) and Justin Jefferson (103 yards receiving). Jim says it is concerning that the VIkings had 3 players go off offensively and only barely won.
