Myles Dorn – S

Myles Dorn got called up to the active 53-man roster against the Bears. The Vikings were missing some key players on special teams because of COVID-19 protocols and needed Dorn to fill in on some of those spots. He filled in, but he did it very badly.

Dorn was the man who was responsible for the blocked punt that could’ve turned the entire game. He barely put a pad on Damien Williams when he came streaking through, and that led to a relatively easy block. One bad block can be forgiven, but Dorn was a liability on every single punt after that, and there were quite a few.

The Vikings couldn’t move the ball at all in the second half and Jordan Berry had his work cut out for him. With Dorn in blocking, Berry barely had enough time to get his kicks off.

He had a Bears player in his face just about every time he dropped back to punt and Vikings fans had to be holding their breath waiting for another block to happen. Berry should’ve been given more credit for keeping his focus and getting those punts off in time.

Dorn is a member of the practice squad for a reason. That reason was evident against the Bears, and it’s the fact he can’t block. One would think the youngster would be fired up and do the most with the opportunity he was given, but his performance was very disappointing and could have been very costly.
