The defense kept us in the entire game. It is obvious that the Vikes have a Super Bowl caliber defense. With the ACL injury to CB Cedric Griffin. It will be interesting to see who will be filling that role the best. My bet will be Sanford or Cook.
Now if the offense mainly the QB could be playing at the same level as the defense the Vikes would be in great shape. The way that Favre played in the 2.5 quarter was horrendous. He could not hit the open receiver. So far in the season that had so much promise for the Vikes has been nothing, but heartbreak.He missed MULTIPLE open receivers throughout the game. There is a reason, why he has one of his worst passing percent game even in his career.
The Vikes have all the weapons in Moss, Harvin and of course Peterson the run with the big boys. The question is can Favre use all the weapon instead to overshooting the receiver. That will remain to be seen.
Can the Vikes get over the hump and not lose another close game next week against the Cowboys @home?
