Happy Monday, everyone. Well, that sucked. I'm not going to harp on the game too much, because you all saw it (or at least the results). The team we saw yesterday is not the 2016 Vikings team, it was a very good team having a very bad day. I'm guessing the coaches will be making adjustments and spending a lot of time figuring out how yesterday happened. An offense that had been making consistent progress took a gigantic step backward yesterday, especially the O line (I have to question the play calling as well. it seems they stepped back from what was working and it bit them).
I'll say the same thing I said last year after the 49ers game. I think the game will serve as a wake-up call, and I'm guessing we'll see an entirely different team take the field next Monday. Also remember, we're 5-1 and leading the division, so don't panic.
