Raiders vs Vikings Preview
The Vikings weren’t able to survive some early haymakers from Aaron Rodgers and the Packers last week, falling behind after giving up three quick TD strikes and coming up short in their comeback effort, 21-17.
Kirk Cousins has struggled to start the season after signing a monster deal last year. He was just 14-of-32 passing for 230 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. That was coming off an opener against the Falcons where he had just 98 yards and one touchdown.
Despite the struggles, the Vikings and head coach Mike Zimmer hasn’t lost faith in their big-ticket starter.
“He’s going to be fine,” Zimmer said. “We have the utmost confidence in him. He’s in a good place where he’s going to play good this week and continue to play good for the rest of the year.”
That should start on Sunday, as Cousins will be going against a Raiders defense that is banged up in the secondary. He’ll at least be playing relaxed knowing he has the support of his head coach.
“It’s nice to be believed in,” Cousins told reporters this week. “You’ve got to go out and earn it, though. In this league, no one’s giving you anything. This isn’t a charity. You’ve got to play well to earn peoples’ confidence, so if he’s saying that, it’s because he’s seen practice reps, he’s seen game reps, he’s seen what we’re capable of as an offense throwing the football. So you’ve got to go out and earn it.
“Believe me, I’m not going to be playing quarterback here if I go out and play the way I did this past Sunday for much longer. So I understand that, and I look forward to getting out there and playing at a much higher level.”
What’s helped the Vikes during Cousins slow start is that third-year back Dalvin Cook is off to a scorching start, leading the NFL in rushing with 265 yards.
The Raiders had a feel-good win to start the year against the Broncos, but didn’t have as much luck against the high-powered Chiefs. After the racing out to a 10-0 lead, Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City put up 28 points in the second quarter to take control.
And things don’t get easier now. The Raiders are in the midst of a 48-day stretch without a true home game, which includes a trip to London to take on the Bears. The Raiders were 1-7 on the road last year.
“We’re still trying to understand how that happened, but we’re going to have to deal with it,” said Gruden. “We’ve just got to showcase our mental toughness and deal with it. It’s uncommon, maybe unprecedented, maybe unrealistic that this should ever happen in pro football. I’m not excited about it, but we’ll adapt and do it the best we can.”
Minnesota is a 9-point favorite for the game, with a total of 43.5.
