The Vikings starting O-line in 2017 didn't play together in the preseason. If that scenario plays out again in the final 2 preseason games, how big of an affect might that have? "It's not ideal," John DeFilippo said. "It's not what you want. I would love for us to be able to go out and say all five of our guys are hearing Kirk's cadence at the same time, they're hearing Kirk's line calls, they're all hearing Pat's line calls if he was playing center. I would love to have that. Unfortunately in the National Football League, that's usually not the case. And you deal with it and everyone's going through those issues. You don't waste timing thinking about that stuff. You just try to make the best situation out of the situation you have. As coaches, we're problem solvers. We keep finding ways to alleviate those problems."
