Good morning Horners! Yes! The Vikings win! Vikings win! The battle between Kirk Cousins and Teddy Bridgewater, for at least this round was settled. Kirk Cousins was the best of the two quarterbacks today with Kirk notching his second come from behind win of his regular-season career in Minnesota. Kirk is playing at a high level over this last month, and the question is will it continue?
This was an ugly game however, and came down to basically who would make the last mistake. Turnovers led to scores for the Panthers and specifically two of them from Jeremy Chinn. It was also mistakes by Teddy Bridgewater overthrowing wide receivers that were wide open and the end zone, and head coach Matt Rhule calling and absurd sequence at the end of the game where the Panthers only ate up 19 seconds of the clock giving the Vikings time for a game-winning drive.
The Vikings chance to make the playoffs is still viable, and the guys talk about that extensively and what it would mean to head coach Mike Zimmer’s career and the 2021 Vikings. What is your opinion on that during this frustrating season? Special teams also continues to be an issue that needs to be fixed or it will definitely cost the Vikings a game or two down the stretch. Muffs, penalties, lack of lane discipline, and other miscues have hurt the team and probably Marwan Maalouf’s employment chances after the season.
Flip Mazzi, Drew, and Dave got spicy commenting on it afterwards with viewers, and if you missed it after the game you can relive it here.
