Following their close win over San Francisco last Sunday, the Vikings had an extra day to gear up for their Monday Night Football showdown with division rival Green Bay.
The flip side to that advantage, however, is that now they’ll have a short week of preparation for their next opponent – the St. Louis Rams.
But Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress will make no excuses for his players or his staff as they head into that short week.
“Good football teams play on Monday night and good football teams find a way to come back and win on the following Sunday,” Childress said during his post-game press conference on Monday night. “So that’ll be the next task at hand.”
One factor that will work in the Vikings favor is that while watching film of the Packers in preparation for Monday’s game, the Vikings saw a lot of Rams film as well because the Packers and Rams played against each other in Week 3.
Next week’s game against the Rams will be played in St. Louis.
