6 biggest takeaways from the Vikings loss vs. Lions in Week 14
By Adam Carlson
The offense has good pieces but fails to act as a unit
Wide receiver Justin Jefferson put on a show against the Lions, catching 11 passes for 223 yards but even a performance like that wasn’t enough to raise the Minnesota Vikings over the Detroit Lions this week.
Jefferson is bound to be named to the Pro Bowl and likely to the All-Pro team this year. Heck, don’t be shocked if there are some individuals who want to insert him into the conversation to be the league’s MVP.
Unfortunately, between a struggling offensive line and inconsistent play at positions, the offense hasn’t been able to showcase exactly what they are capable of, which should be a level close to greatness.
While it’s sad that the offense hasn’t reached its potential, it’s nice to know that the team has the potential to be much better than they have played many times this season when moving the sticks was a major challenge.
