The Miami Dolphins and Minnesota Vikings will culminate their respective preseason schedules tonight with a showdown in Minneapolis. This week’s game will be all about the reserve and younger players, with the starters likely to make a cameo appearance at best. Teams typically do not want to see their top players risk injury just ten days before the start of the regular season.
The Dolphins have plenty of answers that they need to find tonight, including depth at running back, offensive line, and linebacker. They also need to figure out who will be the starting left guard, as well as the starting cornerback opposite Xavien Howard. Tonight could be a big night for several roster bubble players, and it should be entertaining, even if it is not the best football.
