Against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings did the unthinkable and made an improbable comeback to get the victory.
Hope seemed lost for the Minnesota Vikings after the first 30 minutes of their matchup with the Denver Broncos on Sunday.
The Vikings walked into their locker room at the half facing a 20-point deficit to a Broncos team that had just three wins before this week’s contest in the Twin Cities. It was something that seemed all too familiar for Minnesota, who has been known to have a dud of a game once or twice per season since Mike Zimmer became their head coach in 2014.
But then the Vikings came out in the second half and did something the franchise hasn’t done since Week 13 of the 1985 season. Minnesota came all the way back from being down 20 points after the game’s first two quarters and walked off the field inside U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday with a win over Denver.
Many who were watching at home or from the stands had given up on the Vikings following their terrible first-half performance. But Minnesota’s players and coaches clearly never gave up hope and it resulted in one of the most exciting comeback victories in the history of the team.
There was a lot that went on during Sunday’s matchup with the Broncos, so what are some of the biggest takeaways from the Vikings’ performance in Week 11?
