The Minnesota Vikings lost an ugly Thursday Night Football matchup to the Philadelphia Eagles to fall to 0-2 on the season. Which Vikings stood out for the wrong reasons?
The Minnesota Vikings are not off to a great start this season, with two ugly losses hindered by turnovers and a lack of consistency on both sides of the ball.
Following their Week 2 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, the Vikings have to figure things out in a hurry before the season is past the point of no return.
Minnesota turned the ball over four times in Philadelphia, all of which came at horrible times. All four turnovers were fumbles, with two coming deep in Philadelphia's territory - a Brandon Powell fumble after a long punt return and a Justin Jefferson goalline reach that bounced out for a touchback. Kirk Cousins also fumbled early in the second half deep in his own territory to set up an easy score for the Eagles.
The other fumble came at the hands of the most disappointing Viking so far this season: Alexander Mattison.
Along with Mattison, let's look at which Minnesota players performed the worst during the team's loss to Philadephia in Week 2.
