Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier says one of the areas they will work on this week in practice is blitz pickup by the offensive line and quarterback. Frazier fears that Tampa Bay’s defense may have shown other teams a way to find some vulnerabilities in the Vikings offense during last Thursday’s 36-17 loss to the Buccaneers. Frazier says the offensive line has to do a better job of adjusting, while the quarterback has to make better choices in throwing the ball downfield. Minnesota is at Seattle on Sunday. The Vikes are currently tied with Green Bay for second place in the NFC North at 5-and-3. Chicago leads the division at 6-and-1.

Chicago kicker Robbie Gould nailed a game-winning 41-yard field goal as time expired as the Bears rallied to beat the Panthers 23-22 yesterday in the Windy City.
