Thanks go again to @vike daddy for posting it for me last week while I was out of town (and actually in Minnesota).  Please keep all discussion about the game here. 

Something's gotta give here as both teams are 0-2...and the loser probably will already be in a position that will make it difficult to make the playoffs.

Pretty much a must win.  They need to figure out the turnovers and be prepared for the Chargers to test the run defense early and often

The Chargers defense has been smoked so far this year, and their top 2 RBs are injured. Feels like a get right game.

The NFC Vikings vs. the AFC Vikings should be an exciting but frustrating game! Really they are mirror images of each other the last 20 years. The Vikings should win this because Charger's defense doesn't apply pressure at the same level as the Bucs/Eagles excluding Bosa. Turnovers and defense not wearing down is my only concern in this game.

How is their run defense? It would be nice to get the run game going

Middle of the pack. Miami didn't run well against them, but they didn't have to since they threw the ball everywhere. They gave up 141 yards yesterday to the Titans, who are actually good at running the ball. Hopefully The Vikings can find some balance.
