The Minnesota Vikings escaped with a victory in London against the New Orleans Saints. Who are the players that disappointed in the game?

The Minnesota Vikings traveled across the pond to battle their hated conference rival the New Orleans Saints in Week 4. The Saints were riddled with injuries and they were missing some key pieces on the offensive line. Despite the depleted roster of their opponent, the Vikings had to hang on with a last-second missed field goal to get the win.

This game was frustrating for Minnesota fans to watch. The Vikings’ offense only managed six points off of two turnovers, and they struggled in the red zone, having to settle for five Greg Joseph field goals. In the end, it was enough to get the victory, but Minnesota should’ve been looking at a blowout in London instead of sweating it out until the last minute.

The Vikings had a lot of players who played very well in this game. Justin Jefferson bounced back after two disappointing weeks and scored his first rushing touchdown of the season. Patrick Peterson was solid in coverage and proved again that despite his age, he’s still Minnesota’s best cover corner.

While those players shone bright, there were some who weren’t so impressive. Who were some of the most disappointing Vikings in the win over the Saints?
