EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. - The Minnesota Vikings are bringing some extra baggage to London.

They don't have any wins to take with them, though. Just a home game they have to play overseas.

"We can do whatever we need to do that is going to help us to win, in the United States or across the country, wherever that is we'll do what it takes to help our team win," Frazier said.

After their third straight loss to open this season, the Vikings packed up Monday for their long flight. They're considered the host team at Wembley Stadium this Sunday against Pittsburgh for the NFL's annual international showcase.

The Steelers are one of the other five 0-3 teams in the league, so the Vikings will face another vulnerable opponent. That's what Cleveland was supposed to be, however, and the Browns left the Metrodome with a 31-27 victory.

"There were definitely opportunities (Sunday) to make some plays but we didn't and in our league, that's usually the result," Frazier said. "Whether it be a four-minute situation on offense or a two-minute situation on defense, that we weren't able to get the job done."

Frazier said there are not any personnel changes planned. He is taking a calm, optimistic approach to what will be a unique week.

"I think the coaches and the players that we have on our team, they are going to work as hard as they can to get things corrected and I do believe that we will get it corrected," Frazier said.

One concern is secondary depth. Cornerbacks Chris Cook and A.J. Jefferson and safety Jamarca Sanford were scheduled for MRI tests Monday on their injuries.
