The Kansas City Chiefs handed the Minnesota Vikings their fourth loss of the season in Week 5. What were the biggest Vikings disappointments from the defeat?
The Minnesota Vikings hosted the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs this past Sunday and ended up losing again by one score. The Vikings definitely had a chance in this one and, for the majority of the game, went toe to toe with the Chiefs.
Minnesota was their own worst enemy in this game. They actually did well keeping Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes in the pocket. But the Vikings made way too many mistakes that either killed their own offensive drives or allowed the Chiefs to convert and keep their drives going.
There were many who assumed Minnesota would lay an egg in this game and get blown out as they often do when Tony Romo and Jim Nantz are calling the game from the TV booth. That wasn't the case, but the way the Vikings lost was extremely painful and disappointing.
