While many Minnesota Vikings players are getting blamed for their loss to the Dallas Cowboys, who on the team is getting blamed more than they deserve?

The Minnesota Vikings lost embarrassingly this past weekend to the Dallas Cowboys. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong for the Vikings, and it resulted in their seven-game win streak coming to a screeching halt

Minnesota’s Week 11 loss to the Cowboys is a game that we all wish we could forget, yet, it happened.

An absolutely abysmal outing on both sides of the ball by the Vikings led to CBS switching to a more competitive game for the national TV audience in just the third quarter as CBS wanted to spare viewers of the massacre on screen.

There isn’t really a player on Minnesota’s roster who had a good performance, as a three-point offensive outing and a 40-point defensive blunder shows that nobody was doing anything right.

While it’s easy to point fingers as to reasons why the Vikings lost, some players seem to be receiving too much of the heat.

Do these players deserve to have this loss on their shoulders? Absolutely, but they are not the sole reason that Minnesota lost, as some would make it out to be.

Who are a few Vikings players being used as scapegoats for the team’s disappointing loss to the Cowboys?
