Belichick: Vikings Will Be Tough Challenge for Patriots [AUDIO]
If the New England Patriots hope to get their first win of the season this Sunday, they will have to beat the Minnesota Vikings' high-powered offense led by their star running back Adrian Peterson and former Pats QB Matt Cassel.
On Tuesday, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick told Patriots.com his team will have their work cut out for them after losing to Miami, 33-20, in week 1. The Vikings no longer call the former Metrodome home, which means the Patriots won't have to play indoor arena-style football. The Vikings are playing their home games at TCF Bank Stadium, the home field of the University of Minnesota, until their new stadium is ready for the 2016 season.
But the Vikings still have a great deal of speed on both sides of the ball, which means the Patriots offensive line will have to do a much better job of protecting Tom Brady if they hope to return to Gillette Stadium with a win.
Sunday's game will be played at 1 p.m. Be sure to catch all of our Patriots coverage right here on The Blimp 102.9, the Patriots Maine Classic Rock Radio Network, beginning on Friday afternoon.
