Vikings need help in trenches: Purple Access

The Minnesota Vikings fell to the Philadelphia Eagles by a score of 34-28 on Thursday night. While the loss is important, the real discussion comes from how the Vikings played.

There was some good on Thursday night and in the first two games. Quarterback Kirk Cousins and wide receiver Justin Jefferson have combined for 309 yards on 20 receptions with Jordan Addison blooming as a potential star.

Despite the success the Vikings had, there were plenty of warts. They allowed 259 yards on the ground with a defensive line that both didn’t play well nor were they put in a great position to succeed.

How can the Vikings fix that moving forward? Do they need to look at bringing in someone to bolster the trenches? How much will bringing in outside help impact the Vikings this season?

Join Vikings Wire’s own Tyler Forness and Judd Zulgad as they discuss this, the Vikings’ immediate future, and more on the latest episode of Purple Access.
