For the most part, the Vikings depth chart consists of familiar names. Kevin O’Connell will be leaning on this roster as he tries to outduel the man who brought him into the NFL. Indeed, don’t forget that O’Connell was originally a third-round pick to play QB for Bill Belichick’s Patriots. The upcoming game will thus feature a fascinating back and forth between the two coaches.

The players, of course, are most important when it comes to whether a game is won or lost. As a result, I’m offering up this depth chart to give fans a refresher. At times, it differs from the one on the team’s website, so be aware that there are some differences.

Finally, keep in mind that practice squad players aren’t included since this piece only covers the 53-man roster. Players with an injury designation find their names in italics. Once again, the team will be without Akayleb Evans, who had been taking over for Cameron Dantzler. Christian Darrisaw and Andrew Booth Jr. are also out.
