    They should do, the Lions aren’t great and given how bad the Vikings were against the Eagles if there wasn’t some kind of reaction then it’s going to be a long season

    Love the fact that as soon as you post that, the Vikes put together their first decent drive of the match and reduce the deficit to 7.

    No pass rush will be the reason they lose today

    Detroit getting cocky and they pay the price. Had to punt there.

    Nice, Vikes convert a 4th & 6 into a first down.

    Christ Vikings got out of jail big time. Still, won the game and that's all that matters.

    Yeah the D is absolutely useless if the pass rush isn’t there. Entire season rests on Hunter and Smith performing every week

    Red bull being investigated for spending too much money in the 2021 season. This could get spicy…

    They'll be fined. Maybe get a few Constructor's points deducted. Nothing of massive consequence.

    Yep. And I loved every second of it. Brilliant game, Brilliant atmosphere and the Vikings won. That field goal at the end was something else. I was right in line with it as well so had a fantastic view of it bouncing off the post and falling the right side of it!

    Glad you enjoyed it. This season feels like the reverse of last where the Vikings would lose by fine margins despite being pretty good for most of the games. This season apart from the first half of the Packers game they’ve been pretty **** mostly but are finding a way to win.

    Yep. It was good to see Jefferson have a big impact on the game. He was thrilling to watch.

    Yeah he is every bit as good as I hoped when they drafted him. Interesting fact, he was selected 22nd overall, the Eagles were picking at 21 and there were a couple of other receiver needy teams earlier in the draft order as well, but I thought there was no way Jefferson would make it past the Eagles pick if he was still there at all.

    The Eagles took Jalon Reagor instead, so the Vikings landed Jefferson. Reagor was a massive bust in Philadelphia and the Vikings signed Reagor this off season for **** all, like a 7th round pick or something

    It’s also the reason why they have to draft a QB this next draft and move on from Cousins. Jefferson only has a year left on his rookie deal and receivers have started getting huge money, which Jefferson will want. If this ****ing team keeps Cousins and can’t pay Jefferson because of it then they are even stupider than I thought.
