We’ll see how the Vikings look a day after head coach Mike Zimmer called an early end to practice due to everything seemingly going wrong. The Vikings are a young team with a lot to prove, and Zimmer will be expecting the best out of them. They did play in the Hall of Fame Game, and looked solid in a win over the Steelers, but apparently Zimmer needs to see more from the team in practice.
Whatever the case, the Vikings will be hoping to spoil the first game action of the aforementioned Winston. The Buccaneers made Winston the top pick and didn’t even set him up with a quarterback battle in training camp. Winston was immediately named the starter, and he’ll have a chance to show his stuff against the Vikings on Saturday.
On the other side of the ball, the Buccaneers need to find some kind of pass rush (and, similarly, the Vikings need to show they can handle one to keep Teddy Bridgewater clean). Don’t expect the Buccaneers to reveal any of their elaborate blitz schemes in the preseason, but they should send extra men early and often in this game.
Tebow completed 6 of 12 passes for 69 yards, and took three sacks. But there was a highlight for all of the Tebow Maniacs out there when he ran in a 7-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter following Indy’s second lost fumble of the contest.
Sam Bradford was the only Eagles QB who didn’t play, but Kelly says he will make his preseason debut next week.
you know about, plus he’s getting Victor Cruz back. Rueben Randle is still there, and the Giants brought in James Jones earlier this month. Tight end Larry Donnell had a breakout last year. And a running back triumvirate of Rashad Jennings, Shane Vereen and Andre Williams offers ability and versatility. Manning had one of his best seasons in 2014, and 2015 could be even better.
