3 most disappointing Vikings from their win over the Lions in Week 17
By Nik Edlund
Which Minnesota Vikings players were the most disappointing in their final game of 2020?
In their final matchup of the 2020 season, the Minnesota Vikings ended a three-game losing streak by winning a shootout against their division rival, the Detroit Lions.
The Vikings offense overcame a slow start and eventually put up 37 points while also racking up over 500 total yards.
Defensively, it was more of the same for Minnesota in Week 17 against the Lions. The Vikings struggled to generate much of a pass rush and at times, Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford had all day to scan the field and find an open man.
Minnesota’s defense also gave up almost 130 rushing yards and they allowed the Lions to march down the field on just about every possession. The Vikings defense did muster a turnover during the contest though and they were able to prevent Detroit from converting both of their two-point conversions, which ended up being huge.
While plenty of players stepped up in this game to help Minnesota end the season on a high note, there were a few who did the opposite. Which three Vikings players disappointed with their performance against the Lions in Week 17?
