Another slow first half for Vikings


In the first half the Vikings has gotten inside the 30 yard line three times and have not had a touchdown yet. This has been an occurring theme this season. If they would’ve scored touchdowns on those possessions the score is immediately 21-0 and are not facing an 8 pt. lead going into half time. Something with this team is wrong. Now, the team is going to come out in the second half in with no running game, the Redskins have loaded up against Adrian, and are going to be forced to throw the ball, making them predictable. Predictability is the last thing you want as an offense because it simplifies the game for the opposing defense. My question is why do the Vikes keep finding themselves in this position? Finishing drives has been the problem. I think they need to take more shots down field to allow the playmakers to make plays, i understand that we need to run the ball, but we have Adrian Peterson, do we really need to establish a running game that almost every team knows about? Adrian is going to get his touches regardless and more times than not he is going to get his yards. Lets toss is up to the 6’4 Michael Jenkins and see if he can make a play or where is Kyle Rudolph right now?. Bottom line is the second half of the game and season need to be better. I didn’t have the highest hopes for this team coming into the year, but now i expect them to show that killer instinct and put teams away when they have a chance. Thankfully, the Vikings have had much more success in the second half of games so we will see what happens.
