New Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer wants to build a team with a tough mind set. He believes Sunday’s win is a step in building it. Last season, the Vikings allowed five game-winning or game-tying drives in the fourth quarter. In three of them, the offense had time to overcome the defensive collapses. However, they did not in all of them.
On Friday, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer started his press conference by reading a thank you note from a little boy named Alex.

Last week in Buffalo, the Minnesota Vikings held onto a lead late in the fourth quarter before losing on the final play of the game. Thanks to a pair of rookies, history didn’t repeat itself today.
The Minnesota Vikings were down a cornerback by the conclusion of practice on Thursday. Josh Robinson suffered an ankle injury and missed the remainder of practice. The team also learned that John Sullivan passed his concussion tests and practiced in a limited capacity. The team listed two players as non-participants, five as limited participants and four as full participants in Thursday’s practice. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have eight players listed on their injury report.
The Minnesota Vikings had a chance to clinch a victory over the Buffalo Bills Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium, but a fourth-and-20 conversion kept the game-winning drive alive. The Vikings were caught off guard by the quick pace of the 24-yard pass from Kyle Orton to Scott Chandler that converted the long fourth down and set up the game-winning score with one second remaining. During the game, the Vikings suffered a pair of injuries that forced the team to make changes on the offensive line.
The Minnesota Vikings look like they will get Chad Greenway back in the lineup. The veteran linebacker has missed nearly three weeks due to broken ribs. The team also listed 10 other players on the team’s injury report. The Buffalo Bills list eight on theirs.
Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer has undergone a minor procedure, but he is expected back quickly. Sources told WCCO’s Mike Max that Zimmer’s surgery was for a kidney stone.
