The Minnesota Vikings lost a tough game to the Arizona Cardinals. While the defeat was soul-crushing, there were some positives to come out of it.

The Minnesota Vikings are 0-2 to start the 2021 season. This subpar start is shocking to those who believe this team was going to be a contender this season.

There is still plenty of season left for the team to turn it around. But with a few calls or bounces going the other way, the Vikings could be 2-0.

The loss to the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday was especially difficult as Minnesota lost on a last-second missed field goal. They’ve seen this song and dance many times before and the kicking game curse continued with another storied miss that Vikings fans won’t be forgetting anytime soon.

Minnesota will have to try and bounce back from this deflating defeat with another tough contest this coming week as they face off against the Seattle Seahawks.

The loss to the Cardinals was especially heartbreaking for the Vikings because the team played well enough to win the tough road game against a very good opponent.

In a game that ended in a very dark place, there were still plenty of positives for Minnesota to take away from this contest. So what are some of the silver linings from the Vikings’ second moral victory of the season?
