Mike Zimmer just keeps winning in the preseason as Minnesota defeated Seattle 25-19 in Week 2 to improve Zimmer's preseason record to an incredible 19-4 straight-up and 16-7 ATS. Kyle Sloter completed 11-of-13 for 116 yards and a touchdown and Sean Mannion went 11-for-14 for 88 yards and Kirk Cousins finished 6-of-8 as all three QBs combined for 28-of-35 for 272 yards and a 106.2 QB rating. Also, the Vikings held the Seahawks to 221 yards of total offense and one of Seattle's scores was an 88-yard interception return by safety DeShawn Shead. In addition, Minnesota's offensive line performed well and that was a big question mark coming into the season. Arizona lost 33-26 to the Raiders in a game that wasn't nearly as close as the score indicated as the Cardinals fell behind 26-0 before making it respectable by outscoring Oakland 16-7 in the second half. Kyler Murray looked totally out of his league completing only 3-of-8 for 12 yards and was sacked twice, including once for a safety. Brett Hundley was 10-of-15 for 139 yards and a touchdown and QBs Charles Kanoff and Drew Anderson finished up for Arizona. Murray will likely play more this week as he needs all the experience he can get, but based on last week's game, it looks bleak against the Minnesota defense. Play the Vikings and the UNDER.
