The Chargers scare me in that they seem capable of playing really well at times.

Meh, they beat up on a tanking Jags team. Not super impressed. I expect a similar game as Detroit. 

I wonder if we might not see Thielen until Green Bay.

They've also beat the Packers and the Bears.

I think SD will struggle mightily to move the ball. Philip being a statue is a huge benefit. Stop the run early put heat on Philip cause hes not going anywhere especially behind a bad o-line.

Play Ball control again if its me.

Vikings win 24-10.

The Chargers are a better team than their record.  The Vikings should still win because they're the better team, but don't expect it to be easy.

I said it in a different thread but all of their losses have been by one score. This isn’t a team we should be taking lightly. 
 

For the love of all that is good can we please contain Ekeler!

Honestly, I don't think so. He's exactly the kind of player that gives the Vikings problems.

Can’t win this one, may as well pack it up and call it a season. The Chargers are a solid team but MN will need all the fire power they can get on offense. Thielen needs to play, otherwise, I could this one being a struggle.

This is going to be a tough game. With the defense the chargers have and the RB's that they have, it's going to be tough. We need to make sure that we can get Rivers on the ground and rush throws and hope for a few INT's. I think it'll end up fairly high scoring, but hopefully a key turnover will help the Vikings win.

I enjoyed the cornerback rotation Zimmer used yesterday. Corners looked 'fresh' and didn't make any bad decisions. Hope we continue that the rest of the season. Hughes played well.

They seem to be very inconsistent though. No doubt they have a talented team but something is missing. They shouldn't be looked past just because they are 5-8.

The pressure is still on to win though. Right now would be a great time to get Thielen back.

Let's go get that victory. Skol!
