Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer on the Texans offense: "They've got outstanding speed at all the receivers. They give you a lot of open-up formations, a lot of different things that you have to prepare for, which makes it tough for us in a week like this."
Zimmer on Texans QB Deshaun Watson: "I heard his college coach (Clemson Head Coach Dabo Swinney) describe him as Michael Jordan, and you see a lot of those qualities. The way that he can run and how strong he is, how strong of an arm he has, the things that they can do with him. He's really a special, special player."
Zimmer on the Texans WR corps: "I think they're a little bit more diverse with the receivers. They've got terrific speed. (Brandin) Cooks and (Will) Fuller (V) and (Kenny) Stills, they've all got outstanding speed. These guys are really fast and it puts a lot of stress on the defense."
Vikings offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak on the Texans defense: "My focus is trying to figure out how to block J.J. (Watt) and the boys this week, and get our guys in position to make some plays. But they've got a lot of great players and have had a lot of success, so we've got our hands full."
Zimmer on Texans defensive end J.J. Watt: "I see the same guy that I've always seen. He can go 100 miles an hour. He's powerful. He gets off the ball quick. Good extension with his hands. Unfortunately, I played him in a couple playoff games when Kubiak was there and I think he intercepted a pass for a touchdown against us. He's just a super athlete and as hard as he plays, he's a handful every day."
