Will it be time for the Minnesota Vikings to pack it in for the season if they lose to the winless Carolina Panthers in Week 4?

Before the season started, if anyone said that the Minnesota Vikings would start the season 0-3, most people would have probably called them crazy.

Well, this is a reality for Vikings fans, and now each game becomes more and more important to the success of the team's 2023 season.

Luckily for Minnesota, they have a matchup with old friend Adam Thielen and the Carolina Panthers, who also happen to be 0-3. Someone's 0 has to go, and it's hard to imagine the Vikings leaving this game without a win.

Stranger things have happened, and if this Minnesota team were to lose this game, do we see trade talks around Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins and pass rusher Danielle Hunter start to heat up?

Well, let's take a look at a few reasons why Minnesota will leave Charlotte with a 1-3 record so those trade talks don't become more realistic, starting with the fact that the Vikings are home to the best wide receiver in the NFL.
