the Vikings don't have to worry about the new rules, they play back so far and are so soft they don't have to worry about issuing any violent hits. When is the last time and be honest when you saw a Viking lay anybody out with a big hit? Can't remember can you? I can't.

Same reason the DB's do not get any interceptions , they are no where near the receiver when the ball arrives.
