Disappointment No. 3

Minnesota's turnovers

The Vikings turned the ball over three times in Week 1, and many deemed that to be a weird anomaly and something that wouldn't happen again. Instead of dropping that number to zero, the Vikings said, "Hold my beer" and actually added one more turnover to that total in game number two.

It was unbelievable seeing first the Brandon Powell fumble, and then Alexander Mattison, and then Kirk Cousins, and then Justin Jefferson topped them all off by fumbling the ball through the endzone, turning a potential touchdown into a touchback and three points for the Eagles.

Seeing the Vikings shoot themselves in the foot again in Week 2 was extremely disappointing. It's mind-boggling how this can even happen, and it made many wonder on social media if this is karma coming back to the Vikings after squeaking out so many improbable wins a season ago.

The Vikings aren't going to win more than three games this season if they can't hold on to the football. Three turnovers in Week 1 was horrible, and then fumbling it four more times in Week 2 is completely unacceptable. The Vikings played well enough to pull off the upset, and seeing them beat themselves against the defending NFC Champions was very disappointing.
