I honestly wouldn't give an issh about Remmers except for depth reasons, but now with Elfein being hampered forcing Eason to move over and with whatever happened to Reiff going down...I'm concerned.


Hill did not play well today. We need Remmers back

Hill is a much better pass blocker, Remmers the better run blocker...It's a wash to me. They need everyone else back.

Any update on Reiff? I am guessing high ankle sprain at a minimum.

Honestly even if they lost we would still hear about them. I'm surprised they don't have a full time little box on FOX showing Rodgers up-to-date vitals.

I want to be optimistic but decades of Vikings
history tell me if you run across that blanket
it’s going to get ripped out from under you
just like Charlie Brown never gets to kick the
football and lands on his back. After Lucy
jerks it away at the last second. The refs,
kickers, bad play, and offensive lineman injuries
are our Lucy ball holding reality, as Vikings fans.

After cooling down a bit from this game, I’m really not worried about this team. If I said 5 weeks ago that after playing AT Washington, vs the Rams, AT Detroit, AT Atlanta and AT Carolina, we’d be 4-1, would anyone complain? I sure wouldn’t. We didn’t get blown out. We fought all game. Had some tough breaks with penalties, turnovers, drops and injuries but I think we dominate Cincy next week at home. I’m really not worried. Reiff worries me but I think Elflein plays next week.

I’m flying to that game as well. Anyone going?

We should sign Jake Long again and start him at LT for the 3-6 games he'd give us before his ACL or achilles inevitably goes out on him.

I didn't hear ACL but the training staff didn't look happy at all.

How is Funches that wide open at the goal line? Seems like Sendejo was closing way to fast when Cam broke that long run......it made for an easy side step for Cam. Lots of drops by our guys....OL in shambles led to a very poor day running the ball. And still close at the end. If the OL can get healthy I'm not too worried.....if they can't then ???

Pretty much every game that mattered went wrong for us today other than the Seahawks-Jaguars game. Packers and Panthers play next week, and we might be better off if the Packers win that one since we don't want the Panthers winning their division and having to worry about them stealing the #2 seed. Fortunately, the Saints have the tiebreaker on them. #1 seed is now almost certainly out the window since we now lose the common games tiebreaker AND are a game back to the Eagles. Even with Wentz probably out for the season, I doubt they lose two of their last three.

Not sure I'll be able to stomach cheering for the Packers against the Panthers. Might just have to tell myself that if the Panthers beat them, they hopefully won't play Rodgers against us. I guess we can just win out so that game won't matter anyways.

Apparently Shefter is saying probable ACL tear. What an enormous loss if that is the case, although Nick Foles is very good.

Don't give that one seed to the Eagles just yet. If Wentz is out for the year they are a different team.

Havent seen a thing about his tearing his ACL. It would be all over the sports news if he did. Im betting he just hurt it.

Wow, thats horrible then. Hes an amazing QB, and so young. At least he should heal fast, but thats a tough break.

I like the optimism, but Foles is one of the best backups and could start for a number of teams. The Eagles are more than good enough to go 2-1 against the Giants, Raiders, and Cowboys with Foles as their QB. On the bright side, I don't think they'll be good enough to get through the divisional round without Wentz, which would give us home field if we make the NFCCG.

Teddy Bridgewater‏ Verified account @teddyb_h2o

There’s always a lesson you take away from every win and especially every loss. Love the fight in this locker room, let’s learn from this one and get the train back rolling. There’s still a lot is football left to be played.

Really sucks.

We've grown accustomed to the Vikings NOT doing the things they did today.

• 5 drops, including two consecutive in the end zone by Thielen.
• Untimely penalties -- two consecutive facemasks.
• Poor play coming out of the locker room at halftime.
• Missed tackles.
• Interceptions.
• Getting absolutely gashed in the running game.

And still we had this game tied after trailing by 11 late. Lot of fight in this team. Unfortunately, we beat ourselves.

The injuries along the offensive line are very disconcerting. Elflein missing this game really hurt the team. If Reiff is out for any length of time, it's going to be tough. I get so tired of our team always losing its offensive linemen. Especially true this season ... they're really good when they're all healthy, and we have good depth. Just hard to overcome the loss of 3 out of 5 starters.

Cam is a TERRIBLE passer. Wow. I'd actually welcome facing the Panthers in the playoffs, especially at home.

Onward and upward. Let's get better at home against a pretty bad Bengals team.

All the things the Vikings were good at this year, they failed vs Carolina

Stopping the run
Convert 3rd downs in the red zone
defensive stops on 3rd down
pass protection
run blocking
tackling
catching passes
turnovers
gap assignments

The run defense baffles me. Linval is every but as good as, if not better than, Pat Williams, and while Tom Johnson may not be Kevin Williams, the fact that they allow 5 yard runs almost every time is astounding.
As good as Kendricks is, he has had multiple games this season where he has just missed tackles.
I'm not going to give the offense a total pass, because they moved the ball and scored 24 points on a good defense, but losing three of your five starters on the OL is enormous. I guarantee Reiff will miss at least one game, probably more. I really hope Elfleins shoulder heals quickly. If the OL goes down, we could have Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers as our QB and it won't matter.

Im not saying it’s over when it comes to getting
home field but it was a perfect chance to gain
some ground and close the division out.

Hopefully this wakes up our guys and we tear it
Up for a few months again.

Our OL night cost us our best chance in decades
at a ring... sigh

Nick Foles is not very good. He was good for one year. After that, he was awful
