Crushing MN Vikings Defeat Has A Huge Upside For One Player
As Vikings fans we were let down by this past Thursday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. That put the Vikings at 0-2 to start the season. That is, of course, not how we hoped the Minnesota Vikings would start the season.
The statistics aren't pretty when an NFL team starts their season at 0-2. According to the NFL, when going back to 1990 there are only 31 teams out of 270 that started at 0-2 that were able to move forward to the playoffs. If we're looking at the bright side -- just like Lloyd said in "Dumb and Dumber", "So you're telling me there's a chance, yeah!"
That being said there was history made that night and there was still a lot of other good that came from the game. Cousins finished the game with 364 yards and 4 touchdowns. Justin Jefferson finished with 11 catches for 159 yards. Those are all impressive numbers that the Vikings can hopefully build off of.
Keep the faith Vikings fans, there's always next week!
