It's still hard to say this D was "exposed" with the numbers they put up on the year. There was a little drop off but I wouldn't considered it exposed.
someone had posted stats at the end of the season that said the Vikings defense was like 15th (or worse) in the league after week 5. It was a baffling and disturbing stat. They had some good games like against Dallas, but they had some really bad games like Indy and at GB too.

The Devil whispered in the Viking's ear, "There's a storm coming." The Viking replied, "I am the storm." ‪#‎SKOL2017 #BringitHome‬

I think those stats were posted by that friend of yours who joined the board this year (and whose name I'm forgetting at the moment).

Overall, there was a considerable drop in the quality of the defensive performance after the bye week. They had some good games but for the most part, they didn't play like the dominant defense we saw in the first 5 games.
