What were some of the most disappointing moments to come from the Minnesota Vikings getting a win over the Green Bay Packers in Week 8?

The Minnesota Vikings stayed hot and dominated the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. The final score of 24-10 wasn't an indication of how dominating of a performance this was from the Vikings. The defense was humming all game long and came up big late in this one with two huge stops.

Minnesota's passing game was working all day, and Kirk Cousins often found rookie Jordan Addison, who absolutely owned Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander all game long. Vikings wide receiver K.J. Osborn also got in on the action and was a key target, especially in the third quarter.

Obviously, the win was soured by Cousins' season-ending injury. That was a horrible thing to happen, especially when the Vikings climbed back to .500 on the season and really appeared to be coming together and making a serious push for the playoffs.

The Cousins injury is easily the biggest disappointment that happened in this one, but it wasn't the only thing that went awry.

Let's go over the three biggest disappointments from Minnesota's win over Green Bay this past Sunday.
