Minnesota Vikings: 3 Players to Watch Week 2 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

The Minnesota Vikings take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in their second game of the preseason. We take a look at three players to watch.

The preseason is about halfway over. The 2018 NFL regular season is just around the corner. Fans, players, and coaches feel excited about playing the games for real. In the meantime, there are still some things to settle. Players are battling to win starting jobs while others are battling just to make the team. The Minnesota Vikings, while being a solid contender in the NFC, still have some questions they need to answer.

The Vikings had a tremendous season in 2017. However, it ended in a heartbreak in the NFC Championship game. The organization wants to forget all that and just go out and defend their NFC North title. Afterward, they want another deep playoff run.

In Week 2 of the preseason, the Vikings take on the Jacksonville Jaguars. Some thought this would be the Super Bowl matchup last year. Both teams surprised and made strong bids, but ultimately fell in their conference title games. Now they meet in the preseason.

This will be an interesting battle in the NFC North. All the teams made moves to improve. With Kirk Cousins coming to Minnesota, this is the division to look for top-notch quarterback play. Even in Chicago, with an untested second-year quarterback, the Bears surrounded Mitch Trubisky a lot of weapons to help him succeed.

The battle for division supremacy may come down to the wire. What the Vikings do in the preseason goes a long way in winning another title. Here are three players to watch in preseason Week 2.
