Vikings | Need A Running Game

The Star Tribune reports Vikings offensive coordinator Sherman Lewis said for the team to get its running game going, they have use it more. "I think you have to run the ball enough to keep the defense so they can't pass rush every time," Lewis said. Lewis added, "we want to run the ball better, whether we're going to be a passing team or a running team. We have to run the ball enough so they'll respect it." C Matt Birk said it's a team effort and the blocking and running has to get better. Rookie RB Michael Bennett has to have more opportunities to get rolling. Bennett had just eight carries in New Orleans. Asked if Bennett was getting the most out of the running room available, Lewis said, "Yes, he is."
