The Minnesota Vikings struggled offensively last season for a number of reasons, including the loss of Teddy Bridgewater for the season, a dinged-up Adrian Peterson and the resignation of Norv Turner at midseason.
Pat Shurmur is now working to rebuild the Minnesota offense over the course of an entire offseason.
"There will be things we do where we’ll be able to operate differently. Some of the plays will look different maybe in special situations," Shurmur said. "But the key thing is that we have to do a better job of running the football in all situations, and I think that will be a focal point.
"From an offensive standpoint, you have to be able to score points so we need to be more efficient running the ball, hopefully more explosive, and then when we get in there close we have to score points."
The Vikings finished last season ranked 28th in the league in total offense, averaging just 315.1 yards per game. They ranked 23rd in points per game with 20.4 points per game as well.
