Yep, still bad.

There are just fifteen minutes remaining in this one, and it would appear that the Minnesota Vikings are well on their way to 0-2, as they trail the Indianapolis Colts by a score of 18-3.

The Colts got the ball first to start the half, and the Vikings’ defense had what might have been their best series of the season, including the first sack by Yannick Ngakoue as a Minnesota Viking. That led to a Colts’ punt and the Vikings’ first possession of the second half.

That possession ended in Kirk Cousins’ third interception of the half, as a pass intended for Olabisi Johnson went off of his hands and into the hands of T.J. Carrie for a pick, setting the Colts up deep in Vikings territory again. They turned it into another Rodrigo Blankenship field goal, this one a 38-yarder to make the score 18-3.

The Vikings’ offense has continued to be a disaster, but the defense has stepped up a little bit in the second half, at least.

There’s one more quarter left in this one, and the Colts are threatening to add to their 18-3 lead over the Minnesota Vikings. Let’s hang out and see how bad it gets, eh?
