Here’s a look into their 2015 schedule.
The Minnesota Vikings released their full schedule for the 2015 NFL season on Tuesday, April 21. The team hopes for a better showing in 2015 after a disappointing 2014 season. The Vikings finished 7-9 last year, with Teddy Bridgewater leading them. However, Mike Zimmer, the new head coach, and Norv Turner, the offensive coordinator have been hard at work creating an offense around Bridgewater. This is what everyone has been waiting for.
The Vikings’ offense had a solid day on Sunday. Adrian Peterson was able to run for 17 yards on one play and throw for another 25 yards. The Vikings also ran for 63 yards in nine plays. In the second half, Minnesota led the Lions, 16-10. The defense was solid and the offense of the Vikings was well balanced. There were no major injuries in either game and many of the Vikings’ offenses had plenty of opportunities.
The Vikings started the season on the road against the San Francisco 49ers. Andrew Sendejo stopped Phil Dawson’s 28 yard field goal attempt on the first drive. Marcus Sherels returned the blocked goal 44 yards to San Francisco’s 26 yard line. Teddy Bridgewater was stopped on the next drive. Blair Walsh attempted a 44-yard field kick, but it was too far right.
