With a quarter of the season now behind us and the bye week upon us, this seems like a perfect time to take a step back and do a quick review of how things have gone for the Vikings so far.
Obviously it has been a mixed bag from a team performance stand-point, with the Vikings starting the season 2-2.
The Vikes’ best game was surely week 3 against San Diego when they dominated the Chargers. Their worst game was clearly week 1 when they were dominated by San Francisco.
The Denver game has to go down as a solid effort in spite of the loss. And the Lions game was just a good strong all-around game against a key division foe.
