This is a Week 3 matchup of two teams most never thought would come into this contest sitting at 0-2. Despite the records, it looks to be the most entertaining game on the Week 3 slate. While the Chargers seem to find new ways to lose, the Vikings continue to find themselves in one-score games. While they excelled in these games last year, this year they are 0-2.
Main Storylines to Watch
Is this the last stand for Alexander Mattison? Going into the season with the release of Dalvin Cook, it was expected Mattison would dominate the touches in Minnesota. Then Wednesday night happened and the team traded for Cam Akers. With Akers’ familiarity with the coaching staff, we will have to see if Akers sees any action this week. Either way, this should be the last game Mattison dominates touches in a Vikings backfield.
Does Austin Ekeler sit another game? Ekeler missed Week 2 with an ankle injury. He missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but provided an injury update of himself on his own show Wednesday: “It’s a day-to-day, week-to-week situation. I like the progress that I’ve made so far.”
