The Minnesota Vikings dropped a heartbreaker to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2. Who were the most disappointing players from the loss?

The Minnesota Vikings lost in a way that is all too familiar to their fans. They played well enough to get a win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, and after driving down into field goal range to seal the victory, Minnesota’s Greg Joseph shanked the kick, and the team dropped to 0-2 on the season.

Many Vikings players rose to the challenge and played their hearts out. Running back Dalvin Cook was a beast running for over 130 yards on the ground. Kirk Cousins also played an excellent game making great reads, scampering for yardage, and placing the ball where it needed to be.

Defensively for Minnesota, Danielle Hunter was the star with three sacks of Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray. Vikings linebacker Nick Vigil also had a pick-six and was making plays all over the field.

While Minnesota played much better as a whole in Week 2, there were still some players who didn’t perform up to snuff. So who were a few members of the Vikings that were the most disappointing in the second loss of the 2021 season?
