Titans did their best to protect their starters for the regular season http://www.vikingsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-everson-griffen-jersey , letting Kirk Cousins and Marcus Mariota lead the cheers from the sidelines.Rookie Daniel Carlson kicked field goals of 39 and 22 yards, and Kyle Sloter added a 24-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter as the Vikings beat the Tennessee Titans 13-3 on Thursday night as the teams wrapped up the preseason."We're excited to get the preseason over with and start focusing on somebody else and game planning," Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said.Titans three-time Pro Bowl tight end Delanie Walker did not play a snap this preseason and said he's ready for the regular season. He then shared a quote from linebacker Brian Orakpo."The varsity is taking the field now," Walker said.Carlson rebounded from missing a pair of 42-yarders wide left a week ago after beating out Kai Forbath for the job. Carlson connected from 39 yards late in the first half, tying it 3-3. He added a 22-yarder midway through the third quarter, giving the Vikings (3-1) a 6-3 lead.The Titans finished first-year coach Mike Vrabel's first preseason winless, though he made clear protecting starters for the regular season mattered more than notching an exhibition victory. Vrabel said he feels much better about the health of his roster than two weeks ago, and that he focused on coaching the Titans who've worked hard for the team against the Vikings.What does Vrabel know about the Titans after his first preseason?"We'll find that out when we go to Miami," Vrabel said. "We'll really find out what kind of team we've got, how conditioned we are and how talented we are and what kind of coaches when we get done with Miami."The starters who did play were the kickers, and the Titans kept Pro Bowl punter Brett Kern very busy. He punted five times before his backup took over.In the battle of the backups, the Titans dominated the first quarter, outgaining Minnesota 77-8 and holding the ball for more than 12 minutes. Rookie Luke Falk, a sixth-round draft pick out of Washington State, played the whole game. Falk outplayed Cousins' backup Trevor Siemian at least in the first quarter, when the Vikings went three-and-out twice.The Vikings sacked Falk four times, and he threw for 114 yards. Siemian lasted the first half and was 6 of 11 for 55 yards. Zimmer said he thought Siemian played better and helped out the Vikings' young receivers. Siemian said it was a slow first quarter."You get a small sample size and you'd like to keep playing Stefon Diggs Jersey , but that's kind of how it goes," Siemian said.POSITION BATTLESVikings undrafted rookie Mike Boone had 15 carries for 56 yards. He also caught two passes for 53 yards. Roc Thomas, fighting Boone for the third running back slot, hurt his left ankle when tackled at the end of a screen pass early in the second quarter, and finished with four carries for 12 yards.INJURIESMinnesota linebacker Kentrell Brothers, suspended for the first four games of the season , suffered a concussion in the first half. Cornerbacks Horace Richardson and Craig James each hurt hamstrings.Devin Ross, who started with a chance to push for one of the last wide receiver slots, hurt his right ankle on the first play of the Titans' second series.ANTHEM WATCHNo protests were seen by either the Vikings or the Titans. Even Tennessee wide receiver Rishard Matthews, who stayed in the tunnel last season after comments by President Trump in September, was on the sideline during the anthem. He was just removed last weekend from the physically unable to perform list.UP NEXTVikings: Host San Francisco on Sept. 9.Titans: Open season Sept. 9 at Miami.Follow Teresa M. Walker at teresamwalkerVikings kicker Dan Bailey’s former boss speaks on why Bailey was let go In the wake of the news that former Dallas Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey is now signing with the Minnesota Vikings, Dallas Cowboys owner, coach, and PR guy Jerry Jones spoke today about why he let the second most accurate kicker in the league go.KFAN said that Jones spoke on his radio show (yes, he has his own radio show) about why Brett Maher was the better fit for the Cowboys and the real reason — which is money.“Well I think we got real comfortable with how [Brett] Maher was kicking, what kind of offseason he had,” Jones said. “But we Authentic Kyle Rudolph Jersey , as you well know, felt that we could really get the same strategy, same impact that a kicker like Bailey gives us, we felt we could get that from another guy who fit our cap, fit our team better”Jones went on to say that, “It’s what the other boy did. As much as Maher did as much as anything. He was very consistent, and if you had been at practice you could have probably seen, just in general, that we felt like the other player could perform as well and under the circumstances, that’s how you make your decisions.”But back to the “fit our cap, fit our team better.” Bailey’s contract was $22.5 million and that would give him $3.4 million for the next three seasons. And let’s be honest, Jones isn’t trying to pay Bailey that much especially when he is only paying Maher $480,000 for this season. Bailey’s accuracy is not the issue. His last season with the Cowboys he was “75% of his attempts and went 26/28 on extra points.” and prior to that he has had 88% accuracy for field goals and 99% accuracy on extra points.Welcome, Bailey! We will take your minimum 75% accuracy any day of the week.
