Viking Looking To Bounce Back From First Loss

ap-sam-bradford-mychal-kendricks-eagles-vikings

The Minnesota Vikings were the last unbeaten team in the NFL until they played the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. After the loss, critics that have been waiting in the wings took the opportunity to continue their claim that the Vikings aren’t real contenders. While the loss won’t have a big significance in Minnesota’s NFL betting odds, it did reveal some of the team’s weaknesses.

 

Despite the loss, the Minnesota players aren’t doubting themselves and still believe they are one of the best teams in the NFL.

 

After the game, the mood in the locker room was very quiet as the players contemplated what happened on the field. Wide receiver Adam Thielen said nobody in the locker room was happy because they don’t like to lose, no matter how many games they have won.

 

Head coach Mike Zimmer, who wasn’t happy about his team’s performance, let the players know how he felt and chewed them out before going to his press conference.

 

According to Harrison Smith, who said the coach had every right to be upset with the players, Zimmer told the players that their performance on Sunday was unacceptable and that the team wasn’t good enough in all three phases of the game.

 

Zimmer was especially upset about the fact that the team had been so good at taking care of the ball until Sunday, when they committed a bunch of uncharacteristic turnovers. Penalties were also a big part of the loss, which upset the coach because the team had been well disciplined until then.

 

Before they played the Eagles, the Vikings had just one turnover in five games. Against the Eagles, the team committed three turnovers in the first quarter, and finished the game with four. They also added seven penalties, some of which hurt the team.

 

Things were so bad for the Vikings on Sunday that they threw interceptions in the end zone, had plays stall because of penalties, were unable to convert on third and shorts on several occasions, fumbles a punt, and gave up a 98 yard kickoff return for a touchdown.

 

While the game exposed their weaknesses, the Vikings aren’t going to let the loss affect how their season goes. The team plans to watch the tape, learn from it, and move on, because dwelling on a disappointing loss like that can affect the way they approach the rest of the season.

 

The team also knows that a second consecutive loss could lead to a snowball effect where the team enters a funk and watches their season go down the drain because they couldn’t get over the loss.

 

The players said they don’t want to lose two or three games in a row, so they are working on getting back on track with a win this week. The team still has one of the best defenses in the league, which will keep them in most games. But they will have to quickly figure out how to improve their offensive line, which gave up six sacks to a Philadelphia defense that hasn’t gotten to any other quarterback they have faced this year.

 

One thing is for sure, the Vikings, who have dealt with more significant injuries than other teams, are a very resilient team, and will be ready to move on with a win this weekend.
