The Minnesota Vikings lost to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 9, but there was a lot to be learned from the events of this game

Week 9 saw the Minnesota Vikings hit the road to take on the Baltimore Ravens. They were underdogs in this game but were still able to force overtime. However, they were unable to finish off their opponents and lost in a closely contested game.

That loss dropped the Vikings to 3-5 and has the team inching even closer to being irrelevant this season. They will need to rattle off some wins if they hope to work their way into the playoff picture.

Minnesota has a lot of work to do if they hope to turn things around. Although they have some good players doing good things each week, they also have some major shortcomings that need to be addressed soon.

Let’s take a look at five of the biggest takeaways from the 31-34 loss the Minnesota Vikings suffered at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens, as well as some things that went right and wrong for the team in Week 9.
