Who were the most disappointing members of the Minnesota Vikings in their playoff loss to the New York Giants?

The 2022 season is officially over for the Minnesota Vikings after the team lost 31-24 to the New York Giants this past weekend.

The Vikings’ defense failed to show up, allowing the Giants to move up and down the field at will to the tune of 431 yards of total offense.

Minnesota was able to mount a comeback, led mostly by Kirk Cousins and T.J. Hockenson, and they tied the game late. Unfortunately, the defense couldn’t hold, and the Vikings ran out of chances when Cousins threw it short of the sticks on 4th-and-8 with less than two minutes to go in the game.

Despite the loss, the Vikings‘ 2022 season was chock full of crazy moments and unbelievable plays. It’s too bad it ended when it did.

Speaking of it ending, here are five members of the team whose performances and decisions led to the team being bounced in the first round of the playoffs.
