The Vikings can assure themselves a playoff spot if they win out the rest of the season. That’d begin with a win Sunday vs. the Rams. We were at the Vikings’ practice facility on Wednesday to hear about their preparations for Sunday. The Rams’ offense is one of the best in the NFL.

"(Receiver) Cooper Kupp is their guy. We know they’ll try and do everything they can to get the ball into his hands," said Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer.

Of course, you can’t forget about the Rams’ defense. With DT Aaron Donald, LB Von Miller, and CB Jalen Ramsey, the Vikings know it’ll take a total team effort to find a win on Sunday.

"Aaron Donald has great determination, quickness, and strength," Zimmer said.

QB Kirk Cousins added, "Their front line is special. Aaron Donald has speed and power. He’s a tremendous player."

The last time the Vikings played coach Sean McVay and the Rams was September 2018 and they lost 38-31. However, Cousins did have a solid game going 36 for 50 for 422 yards and three touchdowns.
