Bradford has thrown 13 touchdown passes with just three interceptions but has been sacked 28 times behind an offensive line that has had to shuffle and reshuffle due to injuries. He is averaging a pedestrian 6.77 yards per attempt, which ranks 27th among qualified quarterbacks. Minnesota's latest setback came in a crushing 17-15 home loss to the Dallas Cowboys . The Vikings failed on a two-point conversion attempt that would have tied the game with 25 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter when Bradford misfired while looking for tight end Kyle Rudolph. Bradford appeared to be struck in the facemask, but no flag was thrown. Because of tiebreakers, the Vikings enter Sunday as the eighth seed in the NFC -- one game out of the final wild-card spot -- and are tied with Green Bay two games back of the Detroit Lions in the NFC North with four games remaining. "It's always good to take a little break and kind of re-evaluate where you're at and the things you need to do," Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. "I think it was good for the players to get away a little bit." Zimmer missed the team's game against the Cowboys after undergoing emergency eye surgery to repair a detached retina but is expected to be in Jacksonville on Sunday. The Vikings could be without free safety Harrison Smith, who is battling a high ankle sprain. The blow of his loss could be lessened against the Jaguars' 27th-ranked scoring offense (18.7 points per game) that could be without receiver Allen Hurns (hamstring), tight end Julius Thomas (back) and running backs Chris Ivory (hamstring) and Denard Robinson (ankle). Ivory was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, but the others were out, joined by defensive end Jared Odrick (shoulder) and center Brandon Linder (ankle). "He's one of the toughest guys we have on the team," Zimmer said of Smith. "Smartest, most competitive, (a) good pressure guy.
