Vikings - Denver Recap

Offense

  • First half offense so ridiculously conservative
  • 2nd and 20 - run between tackles
  • 3rd and 19 - screen to RB3?
  • Dalvin Cook virtually invisible
  • Tightends Feast

  • Stefon Diggs has a day - would have been even better if one wasn’t called back on penalty
  • Kirk Cousins crushed it in the second half
  • STAY AGGRESSIVE GOING FORWARD

Special Teams

  • Burn it all down
  • Seriously - Kicking was the only good part, returns were garbage
  • STOP TRYING TO RETURN THE KICKOFF WHEN DOWN 3 SCORES

Defense

  • Gashed by Sutton
  • Why doesn’t Mike Zimmer get after backup QBs more?
  • Phillip Lindsay held in check
  • Jayron Kearse absolutely took control of the game late after giving up an 11 yard slant on 4th and 1
