The Vikings have had one of the NFL's best defenses under coach Mike Zimmer, but his acumen will be tested like never before this year.
The Vikings have replaced their three primary cornerbacks from last season with an inexperienced group that showed its youth in a 43-34 loss to the Packers on Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium. Aaron Rodgers began his 13th year as Green Bay's starting quarterback by passing for 364 yards and four touchdowns.

Zimmer is now 5-2 in openers as Vikings coach. The Vikings gave up a total of 522 yards to the Packers.
The 43 points that Green Bay scored is the most points allowed by a Mike Zimmer Minnesota team since he was hired in 2014.
