The Vikings do have a good offensive line, when they are healthy. Yesterday they played without their starting center and right tackle. They started a rookie at right tackle. Not to mention they were working with their fourth string running back.
So far this year we have given up more yards on the ground this year compared to last: 657 this year thru 5 games compared to 557 last year. We are giving up more rushing yards and we have added Smith, and are playing Walker and Payne. Last years injury depleted line was doing better against the run.
