What did we learn about the Minnesota Vikings during their Week 5 loss?

After the first half on Sunday night, it seemed like the Minnesota Vikings were actually going to pull off the upset in their matchup against the undefeated Seattle Seahawks.

The Vikings did a lot of things right in Seattle. Minnesota possessed the ball for more than 39 minutes of the game, they put a ton of pressure on Russell Wilson and held him to just 217 passing yards, and they didn’t allow the Seahawks to convert a single third-down attempt.

But in the end, none of the Vikings’ success on Sunday night mattered because they still walked off the field with their fourth loss of the season.

Despite the unfortunate events that took place in Seattle, however, Minnesota also has a lot to be happy with from this week’s performance. A number of young players stepped up for the Vikings on Sunday and this should excite the team about their future.
