NEWS

Covers Preview - The Minnesota Vikings are near the bottom of the league in passing and are searching for ways to avoid getting blown out. The Buffalo Bills, who visit the Vikings on Sunday, had their pass defense shredded by Tom Brady and the New England Patriots last week as they suffered their third loss in four games. Minnesota and Buffalo are both onto their second quarterbacks of the young season, and rookie Teddy Bridgewater’s promising start for the Vikings has taken a sharp turn.
