Tonight’s game will be a national spectacle because it’s QB Brett Favre’s debut in a Vikings uniform. But the reality is that tonight is actually a bigger night for those battling for key reserve/backup roles.
The Vikings brought 80 players with them to training camp in Mankato this summer, but only 53 will make the final cut next month. Tonight is a big night because starters typically see minimal action in the 2nd preseason game. The 3rd preseason game is as close to a dress rehearsal as you are going to see, which means the guys vying for reserve/backup roles don’t see much time.
Other than tonight, the 4th preseason game is also a key time for the potential reserves/backups.
