Coach Mike Zimmer has put together the Minnesota Vikings to take on all comers, especially the Green Bay Packers.
“Zimmer’s old-school philosophy is we play defense, we run the ball,” said an executive in personnel for an NFL team. “Because of the weather and everything else it’s the recipe that he’s relied on.
“He’s done a great job. There’s a plan there. He’s constructed a way to win.”
The fourth-year coach unseated the Packers in the NFC North Division by one game in 2015, slipped back to 8-8 last year due in part to injuries and won it again this year in a landslide.
