The playoff hopes of the Minnesota Vikings were dashed in a bad loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Who were the most disappointing Vikings in that game?

The Minnesota Vikings were officially eliminated from the playoffs on Sunday night at Lambeau Field. They didn’t have their starting quarterback, and Sean Mannion led a pathetic offensive attack to just 10 points on the night, which was 27 less than what the Green Bay Packers put up.

It was a tough game to watch for Vikings fans, as the defense held the Packers offense off as long as it could, but they didn’t get any help from the offense as they continuously failed to move the chains.

This has been a very disappointing year for the Purple. They brought in a lot of free agents to help add some veteran depth and talent to the roster. While the faces are different, the results were very much the same as a season ago.

The defense had been a major issue, and while they’ve played better in recent weeks, the offense has taken a turn for the worse and has struggled to put points on the board.

There are sure to be some major changes coming to the coaching staff and the roster, and hopefully, many of these disappointing members of the Vikings will need to find new places to work. In the meantime, here are the most disappointing players from the loss to Green Bay.
