Michael Floyd will have a support system that includes former Notre Dame teammates Harrison Smith and Kyle Rudolph in Minnesota. That, coupled with the fact Floyd is returning to his home state, has Vikings coach Mike Zimmer optimistic the receiver can reset his career after last December's DUI arrest.

The Vikings are 20-3 under Mike Zimmer when they've scored 21 points or more, according to ESPN Stats and Information. Their .870 winning percentage when scoring 21 or more is the fifth-best in the league since 2014. "That's what we're trying to do: score 21 points, however we can do it," Zimmer said on Saturday. "But I feel good about the things we've accomplished [on offense this offseason]."

Mike Zimmer said on Saturday he had his eighth surgery on his right eye on Wednesday, removing an oil bubble from his eye and inserting a gas bubble. Zimmer is unable to fly for six weeks after the surgery. He has said he hopes the eight surgery would be the last one, but added on Saturday, "I've thought that before."
