Minnesota Vikings News and Links: September 23, 2019

A solid team win yesterday should have everyone in high spirits.

Merry post-win Monday, everyone!

Yesterday, we saw another stellar performance by the Vikings defense and running game, and a much better performance from the passing game. Cousins was much more accurate, made better decisions with the ball, and he held on to the ball. I was happy to see his performance, and am hopeful that the Packers game was an anomaly.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Ted stopped by and dropped off the Stock Market Report: Raiders.

Yesterday’s victory brought the franchise to some significant milestones, per Chris.

Chris has your post-game wrap-up.

Chad Beebe was carted off the field yesterday, let’s hope he’s okay.

My favorite DN tradition, STRIKE UP THE BAND!

We all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

  • No discussion of politics or religion
  • No feeding of the trolls
  • Leave the gender hatred at the door
  • Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
  • Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
  • No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
  • If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
  • While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm.

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on, don’t tip the cows don’t forget to tip your waitress, and ARRRRGH, enjoy the boiled parrot, ye’ scurvy scallywags.
