Vikings takeaway No. 6

Things are looking dim for Minnesota's season

Normally, overreactions early in the season are dramatic and excessive in nature. That said, the Minnesota Vikings starting the season with two losses is something that could be very difficult to bounce back from.

The team's schedule this year is a brutal one. Last year, the Vikings only lost a total of four games and they already have half those losses in the first two weeks, making the path to returning as the NFC North Champions a difficult one.

Although it is still really early, it may already be time for fans to lower their expectations of this Vikings team. It is highly possible that they don't win the division and there is a good chance they could miss the playoffs as well.


The ball bounced the way of the Minnesota Vikings quite a few times last season, but that hasn't been the case this year. Did the team use up all their luck last season or are the fortunate moments still to come? That all depends on it you see the glass as half-empty or half-full.
