Vikings vs Seahawks… Good morning Horners! Well, at least it is morning. Your Minnesota Vikings went into CenturyLink Field and played the Seattle Seahawks an “entertaining” game? After leading by 7 going into the half, basically from the pick 6 from Anthony Harris, the Vikings proceeded to allow the the Seahawks score and score and score. Then when the fans were starting to get really mad, the offense started their comeback. They closed to within 4 after a missed Dan Bailey extra point. They still had a chance as the meme goes, but the defense couldn’t get that final stop. The final was Vikings 30 – Seahawks 37.
Looking at the game, Xavier Rhodes was on the top of the failed when it counts list, but there were plenty on the list. There were a lot of dropped passes by the Vikings receivers including two or three by Stefon Diggs, one of those resulting in an interception that wasn’t Kirk Cousins’ fault. There were fumbles by Dalvin Cook and then CJ Ham on a kick return. There was the successful fake punt that had us questioning why no one saw it coming, especially special teams coordinator Marwan Maalouf? Finally, the wide left extra point. It was frustrating and you have every right to your takes this week too.
After two weeks to prepare by Mike Zimmer and his staff, this was a very important game that definitely had playoff seeding implications and would have boosted the team’s perception as a possible Super Bowl contender, the falling short once again almost ensure the Vikings will roll into the playoffs as the 6th seed and have to win on the road against good teams. Do you think this team can do that?
