Vikings Head To London

Vikings Head To London

The Minnesota Vikings are bringing some extra baggage to London.

They don’t have any wins to take with them, though. Just a home game they have to play overseas.

After their third straight loss to open this season, the Vikings packed up Monday for their long flight. They’re considered the host team at Wembley Stadium this Sunday against Pittsburgh for the NFL’s annual international showcase.

The Steelers are one of the other five 0-3 teams in the league, so the Vikings will face another vulnerable opponent. That’s what Cleveland was supposed to be, however, and the Browns left the Metrodome with a 31-27 victory.

One concern is secondary depth. Cornerbacks Chris Cook and A.J. Jefferson and safety Jamarca Sanford were scheduled for MRI tests Monday on their injuries.
