Vikings still cannot protect QB Bradford

(TSX / STATS) -- MANKATO, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings opened the preseason looking a lot like they did when they closed last season. And that's not good when it comes to the offensive line and its ability to protect quarterback Sam Bradford.

Playing without starting left tackle Riley Reiff because of a lingering back injury, the Vikings' first-team offense gave up two sacks in the opening 7 1/2 minutes of a 17-10 win at Buffalo. The first unit also mustered just one first down and didn't score in three possessions.

New right tackle Mike Remmers whiffed in pass protection, leading to the first sack on Bradford. The second sack came when the Bills overloaded left tackle Rashod Hill, who showed awful technique, rookie running back Dalvin Cook failed to chip the end and Bradford went down in a heap again.
