The feel-good emotion that comes from a victory in the NFL will be short-lived for the Vikings this week. Just 4 nights after a 17-10 win over the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football, the Vikings will bounce back and conclude their preseason by hosting the Dallas Cowboys at the Metrodome on Friday night at 7:00 CT.
Included in the 4 days between games will be normal preparation for a preseason game but also something that Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress describes as the toughest part about coaching – making roster cuts. The Vikings, and the rest of the NFL’s 31 teams, must be down to 75 players by Tuesday afternoon. Currently, the Vikings have 79 players on the roster.
The toughest part of coaching doesn’t get any easier after Friday night’s game, either. The Vikings must whittle their roster down to 53 players by Saturday afternoon.
