What are some of the biggest takeaways from the latest performance by the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday that resulted in their 10th win of the 2019 season?
If someone were to say before the season that the Minnesota Vikings would have 10 wins by Week 16, most would assume the team would be on its way to winning the NFC North and contending for one of the top two playoff spots in the NFC.
While they did earn their 10th victory of the season on Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers, the Vikings are still trailing the Green Bay Packers by one game for the lead in their division. Minnesota is also only the sixth seed in the current NFC playoff picture despite their 10-4 record after 15 weeks.
With the way they played on Sunday against the Chargers though, the Vikings should be confident that they could beat anyone they face in the playoffs, regardless of location.
While Los Angeles isn’t having a very good season, they have still had plenty of moments this year that proved they have the talent to defeat good teams. Back in Week 9, the Chargers upset the Green Bay Packers by 15 points and Los Angeles was looking to do the same on Sunday against Minnesota.
However, the Vikings made sure there was no upset to be had this week and rolled out of the Chargers’ “home” stadium with a 30-point victory.
There was a lot that went on during the matchup, so what are some of the biggest takeaways from the Vikings’ win in Los Angeles on Sunday?
