It’s Monday and the Vikings are back at .500 and very much alive [at least at times]. Your Minnesota Vikings defeating the Carolina Panthers in overtime. It is now onto the bye week, but before that, let’s talk about how the Vikes offensive put 571 yards on the 2nd ranked defense in the league, more than doubling what they were allowing this season to date. That builds confidence. The defense had a decent day except for the two fluky plays on the final drive that the Panthers tied it up. They are steadily getting good, especially after the first two games. That too builds confidence. Then take clutch Kirk Cousins making things happen when it is most needed. That pass to KJ Osborn for the walk-off win was in the perfect spot. Old Kirk would have checked down, but he now has trust in his WR3 to make the play. That’s confidence.
Other talking points for tonight’s show:
- - Christian Darrisaw’s performance.
- - Bye week fixes.
- - Mike Zimmer coaching decisions.
- - A look ahead to the next 4 weeks.
- - State of the roster at the bye.
- - Players of the game.
