Who were some of the disappointing Minnesota Vikings players from their victory over the Seattle Seahawks this past weekend?

The Minnesota Vikings finally secured their first victory of the 2021 NFL season with a convincing 30-17 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3. Not only did the Vikings finally get a win, but they ended a seven-game skid against the Seahawks, beating Russell Wilson and his coach Pete Carroll for the first time ever.

Minnesota struggled early on defense, but they tightened things up in the second half, shutting down Wilson and Seattle’s offense. The Vikings offense was able to put up points in the final two quarters lead by a masterful performance by quarterback Kirk Cousins. He was locked in all day and extremely precise with the football.

Minnesota’s offensive line gave Cousins plenty of time to find open receivers and Alexander Mattison filled in admirably running the football for an injured Dalvin Cook. It was truly a team win and one the Vikings can look to build off as they move forward and begin preparing for the Cleveland Browns in Week 4.

While Minnesota performed well as a whole, there were still some players who struggled. Some of these are familiar offenders who haven’t had the best start to the season, while others are making their first appearance on this list.

So who are four Vikings players that were disappointing in the team’s victory over the Seahawks this past Sunday?
