The empty seats and electronic crowd murmuring created an odd atmosphere at U.S. Bank Stadium, a typically raucous venue for the Minnesota Vikings. But eeriness aside, what we got on Sunday was — incredibly — real football. The Green Bay Packers announced themselves to the rest of the division with a convincing 43-34 victory over Kirk Cousins and a slightly out-of-sorts Vikings team.
On today’s Wednesday morning debrief episode, Evan “Tex” Western joins Zach Rapport to expound on our feelings coming out of week one, and what — if anything — we think we can take away from this game.
- How will Lane Taylor’s season ending injury impact an already muddy picture on the right side of the offensive line?
- Backs and ends and motion, oh my! What did this game tell us about what to expect in year two of the Matt LaFleur offense?
- DVOA. HUH. What is it good for? * closes laptop *
- We also open the mailbag and answer listener questions.
