Renovated Vikings defense ready to play for real

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Vikings will have seven new starters in their base defense this season. The scheme itself is a lot different, too, using more man-to-man coverage, blitzing and disguises than in the past.

After giving up the most points in the NFL last year, the Vikings have been busy undertaking a renovation project that began when Mike Zimmer was hired as head coach. Players showed some progress during training camp, winning all four exhibition games, and now it's time to gauge improvement for real.

"Keep doing the things that we've done in the preseason, we can go out and beat anybody," Zimmer said. "But we have to go out and do them. We can't talk about it."
