Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- If you can point to one aspect of the Vikings that needs to build on a solid 2012 it's The Vikings defense.

Minnesota made strides last year thanks to players like Harrison Smith and Everson Griffen and they need to be even better for this coming year at taking the ball away.

Chad Greenway- Vikings Linebacker: "You look at what Harrison did and Everson Griffen taking them back for touchdowns just turn them into scores does so much for your team and so much to overcome from the other sidelines, rely on defense and special teams. When the defense turns the ball over and scores you have a 75% chance of winning the game scoring the ball so we stress that all the time."
