Who were the most disappointing Minnesota Vikings players from Week 3?

The Minnesota Vikings played their best game of the 2020 season in Week 3 against the Tennessee Titans. But, unfortunately, the Vikings’ efforts weren’t enough as they ended up on the wrong side of a 31-30 final score.

Minnesota had some players who rose to the occasion and gave it all to try and get the purple and gold their first win of the season.

Vikings rookie receiver Justin Jefferson had a breakout game with over 175 receiving yards and a score. Dalvin Cook torched the Titans for 181 yards on the ground and even Kirk Cousins stood tall in the face of extreme pressure to hit some receivers down the field for some big gains.

While those Minnesota players all looked good, there were just as many who had very disappointing performances.

Some of these were defensive players whose poor play on the field allowed the Titans to come back in the matchup after the Vikings were up by 12 points. Others were offensive players who either didn’t show up or crumbled when the team needed them the most.

So let’s get into it and go over the five most disappointing Minnesota players from their third straight loss of the 2020 season.
