Vikings defense shuts down RBs and WRs - tight ends are a different story
Before the Vikings play the Chicago Bears tomorrow, we need to look at the important reason to why the Vikings lost the last time we played against the Bears. I believe that a big reason has been that the Vikings' defense has had problems containing tight ends this season. Need some examples?
Week 7 against the Bears: Greg Olsen has 6 receptions for 74 yards and a TD and Clark has 3 receptions for 59 yards.
Week 9 against the Texans: Owens Daniels has a stunning 11 receptions for 133 yards (Vikings won that game)
Here's an article about the reason why we lost against the Bears the last time we met:
