3. The Vikings defense is the top rated in the league, letting up only about 280 yards per game. What or who has been a key to their success? What kind of welcoming party do they have planned for the returning Jay Cutler?
The key to the Minnesota Vikings defensive success is easy: head coach Mike Zimmer. Zimmer has been known to draw up some interesting plays to force teams into accounting for players who may or may not be showing what they are actually going to be doing.
Using a combination of a deep defensive line with a stingy secondary, Minnesota has built themselves a defense that the NFC North should be fearing for years. Expect nothing different for when the Vikings take on Jay Cutler, as the defensive game plan should remain the same.
