Defenses steal the show in Jaguars-Vikings practices

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) Jacksonville and Minnesota each fell one game short of the Super Bowl last season, and they had another important trait in common, too.

Dominant defense.

The Vikings finished first in the NFL last season with both the fewest yards and points allowed, and that didn't go unnoticed by the Jaguars. They were second and, naturally, not pleased about it.
