Defense to put on the rush

By | Posted Tuesday, July 24

One of the weaknesses that the Minnesota Vikings attempted to address was their poor NFL ranking in sacks during last season. The team recorded only 30, putting them at 25th in the league. This year, the Vikings hope to use a defensive linemen rotation to keep legs fresh and record more sacks. By putting pressure on the quarterback, the Vikings hope to raise their dead last ranking of overall pass defense from last season. Although the Vikings do have two Pro-Bowl caliber linemen in Kevin Williams and Pat Williams, the two big men would often fatigue toward the end games last year. With the addition of rookie Brian Robison, the Vikings are trying to keep linemen fresh, and the opposing quarterback hurried.
