Well, that was a wasted opportunity and huge disappointed last night, wasn’t it? Three turnovers results in a slim lead which was given up in the second half? Bah Humbug. If you stopped by to blame the defense, don’t bother, they were the only reason the Vikings were still in the game late into the third quarter. If I remember correctly this loss guarantees the Vikings the 6th seed no matter the result next week against the Bears. Yes, I’m very disappointed in last night’s result. Meanwhile, let’s carry on with our news and links open thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and you should stay home from work today, the game was on late and you need some sleep.
