It’s a post-win Monday!

Merry Monday, everyone!

The Minnesota Vikings got on track yesterday with a big road win against a quality opponent. Justin Jefferson had a huge day, Cousins had a very good day, the defense did their job, and the special teams units all looked good to great. It was a good day all around for the team, and although I don’t believe in momentum, they put together a well-rounded, complete game upon which they can hopefully build. They’re now 4-5, in the think of the playoffs (no, that’s not a misspelling), and they have a huge game coming up at home against the division rival Packers. It’s okay to feel good about how the team performed yesterday. SKOL!!!!!!!!

Around the DN since the last open thread:

Chris has the post-game wrap-up. I’m not sure why, but I enjoy having two hyphenated compound words in a row.

Luft Krigare posted Vikings vs Chargers - CTP’s: The Final Score.

As is the open thread custom on the day after a win:

Strike up the band!!!!!!!!!!

Again, 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 bar light is on and the thread is open. Don’t forget to tip the cows, and try the tiger meat.
