The Minnesota Vikings have more confidence and optimism heading into this offseason than they did a year ago. They have two of the most important pieces in place in head coach Mike Zimmer and Teddy Bridgewater. Also, they improved in several areas from the past season. The Vikings have 12 free agents this offseason, but just one opening day starter.
The Texans clinched the AFC South last week with a win over the Colts. This coming Sunday, they’ll have a chance to clinch home field against the Vikings (assuming the world doesn’t end on Friday).
