Classic Vikings in a lot of ways, came up with some great plays and earned the right to win. However when they had their foot on the throat, they missed their chance and came extremely close to losing it all. Dallas were all over the Vikings on their second last drive and looked certain to score. Some baffling play-calling followed by a great play by Kendricks was just enough to hold on.

It was a good win, and as a fan you've got to savour those results. They've shown they're an above average team, but for a long suffering fan-base, it's difficult to get too carried away.

I had a chance to watch the condensed version last night.
As you mentioned, up 14 nil the Vikings had a chance to put the foot on the throat. But we know how quickly it can turn on a dime.
A few defensive lapses and Prescott with same nice touches got them back into the game.
Overall I thought Minnesota were the better side though.

Vikings are massive dark horses this year I think.

Dalvin Cook is killing it. Cousins isn't being terrible - and he doesn't need to do much other than manage the game - plus Diggs and Thielen are quality. Their defense is solid too.

I think they need to incorporate their tight ends a bit more. Smith and Rudolph are talents.

They helped the Saints, though it'd have been real nice if we could've beaten the Falcons yesterday...

Totally agree with you mate.

Just caught the highlights, geez the Falcons DL finally showed up.
Amstead supposedly was battling the flu and Peat left the game injured, but it was still a terrible showing from an o-line that had kept rushers like Watt, Clowney and Mack in check this year. Penalties killed killed them too, and that's something that happens too often for my liking.

Hopefully it's just one of those division games that you can never really account for, but even so there are some adjustments that need to be made...

If he's not done for the year at least, then the Burfict witch hunt was absolute bullshit (which it already was).
Yeah mate I couldn't believe what I watching.
Caught the last few minutes at work of a nothing game then this shit.
Rudolph wasn't innocent in all of this pulling at Garrett's helmet first.
Garrett's reaction was totally crazy and should cost him dearly.

Mason Rudolph seems like the stereotypical cocky QB, he’s an absolute bitch. In saying that, I’m not trying to downplay the seriousness of the whole incident.
