After dispatching the Dirty Birds from Atlanta, the Vikings continue with their southern rock tour this weekend visiting the Panthers of Carolina.
We'll see a couple familiar faces playing for the Panthers. Left tackle DoorMatt Kalil will be tasked with slowing down Everson Griffin, and nickel cornerback Captain Munnerlyn will match up with Adam Thielen in the slot. Good luck with that.
We all know about Kalil's struggles as a Viking, and great news-he hasn't gotten any better. I'm thinking Griff should have about 26 sacks this game.
Munnerlyn was a solid nickel corner for the Vikes, and I was worried the team would miss his services. However, it looks like Captain has been playing more like a Private First Class down in Carolina. Expect a big day in the Viking aerial attack, as the Panthers are pretty solid defending the run game.
