Vikings vs Bengals Preview

The Bengals are looking to finally get out of the cellar this season, after finishing at the bottom of the AFC North with a 4-11-1 mark last year. Cincinnati lost its rookie quarterback midway through the season when Burrow went down with a torn ACL, and the second-year quarterback has been working diligently to return to top form.

“I expect to be better,” Burrow said. “I put in a lot of work this offseason that I’m excited to show off, as all the guys have. We’re a much better football team.”

“He knows it’s a long season,” Bengals head coach Zac Taylor added, via USA TODAY. “We want him healthy. He’s got to manage that, we’ve got to manage that. It’s just part of football. Quarterbacks get hit.”

Cincinnati added OL Riley Reiff to help out on the offensive line, and they drafted one of Burrow’s favorite targets in college in wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase. The Bengals also added offensive lineman Jackson Carman in the second round of the draft this year, so they’re clearly trying to build their team around their young QB.

As for the Vikings, they finished 7-9 last year and they’re hoping to get back to the postseason, which they did in 2019 and 2017. Cousins had 4,265 yards, 35 touchdowns and 13 interceptions last year, and he’ll have all of his top weapons, including wideouts Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson back.

Running back Dalvin Cook should also be a focal point of the offense. Cook tallied 1,557 yards and 16 touchdowns on the ground last year, and he has been a huge help to Cousins over the last several seasons.

On the other side of the ball, Minnesota allowed 29.7 points and 393.3 yards a game on defense last year, notching 15 interceptions, and seven forced fumbles. The Vikings also re-signed former standout pass rusher Everson Griffen this offseason, so it will be interesting to see what impact he has early.

With fans back in the stands this year, Zimmer is expecting to battle the elements more this season than he did last.

“Cincinnati should have a good crowd. I was actually just there the other day,” Zimmer said this week. “There’s a lot of hype about them and Burrow being back, so it should be good.”
