Okay, now it’s over.

At least we made it interesting. Credit to Carolina for scoring 31 pts on the Vikes. Impressive.

Cam Newton came up big.

We will overcome this, and we may meet these guys again in the playoffs.


Green Bay is tied with the Browns, and Detroit is tied with Tampa Bay... could still work out for us this week!

It's time for Bridgewater to start a game.

Vikings played like total crap today. Awful on defense allowing way too many big plays on simple runs up the middle, and the offense flat out couldn't execute in key situations.

Think someone else said it, this team cant come from behind, that and our kicking will ensure we don't make a deep playoff run. This franchise is honestly depressing lol, anyways have a good day all.

No way.

Keenum was off on a few passes, but he also had a lot of dropped balls and the offensive line easily played its worst game of the year (years?).

I blame this one on the defense, though. They were healthy. They gave up a 60 yard TD run on a 3rd-and-1, gave up a walk in TD pass to the best Carolina WR on a 3rd-and-7, and then gave up a huge run up the middle on a QB keeper late in a game. Embarrassing performance for unit that looked unprepared to me. It looked to me like they had not studied or prepared for the Panther offense.

Yup... Peterman’s backup. :)

Webb just threw a long pass for 35 yds in that mess.

I hope this isn't 2009 all over again. 2 out of the last 3 at home against bad or average teams. They need to go 3-0 on the way out.

O Line looked like last years squad. I think whether we overcome this game or not depends on Elflein and Reiff’s injuries.
