Vikings’ offense has changed in Adrian Peterson’s absence

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — The Minnesota Vikings entered the 2014 season with what appeared to be a carefully-laid path toward their offensive future, one in which they would convert some of Adrian Peterson’s carries to receptions, diversifying their offense beyond the 2012 NFL MVP and introducing third-round pick Jerick McKinnon, first as a counterpart and then possibly as a successor. They would entrust the starting quarterback job to Matt Cassel, giving Teddy Bridgewater time to learn behind him as a rookie, and sometime in the future — maybe in 2014, maybe later — they would develop their offense around Bridgewater as he took the starting job.
