Welcome to Game 2 of the Mike Zimmer era for the Minnesota Vikings, as they take on the Arizona Cardinals at TCF Bank Stadium on the campus of the University of Minnesota on Saturday night.

Week 1 of the preseason didn't provide either team with much of a test; the Vikings beat the Oakland Raiders 10-6, and the Cardinals overwhelmed the Houston Texans 32-0. While last week's games were nothing more than glorified scrimmages, the intensity ramps up in Week 2 of the preseason as opening day of the regular season inches closer.

The game is now underway.
