Vikings Head Coach Eduardo Nunes went into the game feeling good after last game, but is worried about three of his starters that will be out due to illnesses and one out with a concussion.

“We hope on finishing more today because that’s what we needed to work on coming off last game, but it’s going to be tough without 4 of our starters,” said Nunes.
