Vikings are in survival mode but I think Teddy and/or Sam will be back after the bye. If we can be .500 or better up to the bye, they can make a second half run. This team should be able to beat the Ravens and Browns. At least one, both is optimal obviously.

What really bothered me about this game is that I had Murray and Howard in my team this week. I really needed them to step up and they failed me that's another loss for me this week.

Good win in an ugly game. Any win in Soldier Field is a good win.

The rookie Trubisky started hot, but finished with only 4 completions after the first quarter. If not for stupid plays like allowing a TD on a fake punt, this game isn't close. But ... it was close. We got the win, and that's what counts. Especially a road win in the division.

Defense was stout, giving up just 274 yards. Only one sack, but it was a big strip-sack by Griffen.

Gotta get ready now on a short week for Green Bay. Couple of home games in a row. We need to get these.

Well said I think we lose the Packers


With this defense, they can win against anybody this year. I really think the Vikings match up well against Gb. They have no running game so they'll be one dimensional. Going to be a fun game.

Aaron Jones had 125 rushing yards and a TD.

I'm going to say it again, the reds were terrible this game for both sides. I really hope the league gets on their case for it. Almost all Of the holding calls were atrocious. That call on Chicago at the end was a joke. Yes , you could argue they owed us one, but you don't call that crap At that part of the game.

Didn't watch the game. Is he good or did he just have a good game? Scary if they finally have a legit running game.

It was a Good ugly win!
I was surprised Zimmer didn't pull Bradford sooner. Cause you could tell he was hurt.

Felt like their running game was better than it has been. He's probably an improvement. Not dramatically, but improved.

Dude give it a rest. It's something you could've easily looked up in a box score but instead come on here to complain about it. Go back and look at all your posts in this thread. Its one complaint after another. It's like that every single week no matter if we win by 20 or lose by 20. Its beyond tiring

Is there a more Vikings game than this?

QB injured? Check
Offsides on crucial 3rd down where you got the stop? Check
Dropped INT: Check
Wayes penalties: Check
Weird-ass TD by opponent: Check


QB less passing yards than opposing teams punter.
Griffen with typical jump offsides.
McKinnon awful kick returns.

He looked really good against those Cowboys a big contributor to the Packers win.

Almost as tiring as you whining over every post I make. Put me on ignore. You are a bigger homer then Wobby and PA put together. If the team does well, Im happy. When they look like they did last night, im going to complain, as did almost everyone else. Go back and look at your own posts. They are usually whining about someone else that has said something bad about a player. That is also very annoying.

It's just you NEVER stop. I wouldnt even be talking to you if you actually stopped whining for 5 seconds. It's like you wait for players to eff up just so you can come on here to say how bad of a player he is or how bad of a GM Spielman is or how bad of a coach Zim is. It's like you get enjoyment out of it or something I dont know. I'm not a homer, I'm just realistic about things and dont overreact every time something little goes wrong. There are guys on this team I am not fond of. There are coaches on this team I am not fond of. There are decisions Spielman has made that I am not fond of. I have voiced those opinions. However, one thing I do not do is overreact and explode every time something goes wrong. Nor do I complain about it on here every single time it happens.

If you actually had a fair mix of complaining and positive posts on here like most everyone does, I wouldnt be saying much to you at all. But it is so consistent and repetitive at this point, that it makes games threads very unenjoyable. It's non-stop complaining. The Wilfs, Spielman, Zim, Treadwell, Waynes, Sendejo, Barr, Alexander, the OL, Bradford, Keenum, etc. I could go through the whole damn organization if I want with you.

I take the blame for not foe-ing you a long time ago. However, you've progressively gotten worse this year. And given the fact that I enjoy posting in game threads, I have to foe you because I really cant stand reading them anymore because of you. Nothing wrong with complaining here and there but you take it over the top and are so repetitive and post ridiculous overreactions that I'm beyond tired of it. Hopefully you can find some happiness within this team someday because you are easily one of the most miserable, negative fans I have ever seen.

The Bears new savior struggles against the Vikes defense and throws 2 Picks. Vikes manage to win 20-17.

Eerily prescient, particularly if you count the Griffen strip as a "pick."
