The Vikings defense hasn’t done much wrong so far this preseason. As we mentioned in an earlier blog, they lead the NFL in sacks through 2 preseason contests.
But the defensive unit is also excelling in other areas. For example, the Vikings defense currently ranks #1 overall and #1 against the pass. They’ve also allowed just 16 points so far in the preseason, which is the lowest among all teams.
While addressing reporters after practice on Friday, Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress was asked where he’d like to see improvement in his defensive unit. The above-mentioned statistics might cause one to think there isn’t much room for improvement, but Childress put an offensive spin on his response.
“As Leslie (Frazier) says all the time, taking the ball away,” Childress said. “They’ve done a decent job of getting fumbles on the ground. We’d like to have more interceptions, tips, those kinds of things. You’re always mindful of that and being able to turn the ball to the offense on a short field.”
