Who were the most disappointing Minnesota Vikings from the team’s most recent loss in Week 16 to the Los Angeles Rams?

The Minnesota Vikings had plenty of opportunities to get a much-needed win at home against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, but they couldn’t cash those in.

The Vikings scored just 10 points off of three Matthew Stafford turnovers and also allowed a punt return touchdown. Minnesota had a couple of dropped interceptions as well, not accepting the gift of a victory that the Rams appeared so willing to give.

There were plenty of Vikings players who played well in this game. Justin Jefferson had over 100 yards receiving and K.J. Osborn had a solid day catching the ball as well. Greg Joseph was perfect on the day and Anthony Barr had two interceptions deep inside Los Angeles territory that helped Minnesota narrow the gap.

While those players rose to the occasion, plenty did not. Whether it was those blowing coverages or dropping interceptions, there were several members of the Vikings who had costly mistakes that lead to the team losing their eighth game of the season. Here are those players whose performances were the most disappointing.
