The Minnesota Vikings dropped to 0-2 after kicker Greg Joseph missed a 37-yard field goal at the end of regulation to lose to the Arizona Cardinals, 34-33.
It’s been a tough season already for the Minnesota Vikings and it somehow only got a lot worse on Sunday after kicker Greg Joseph missed a 37-yard field goal that would’ve given the team their first win of the season. Instead, the Vikings fell to the Arizona Cardinals, 34-33.
As if today’s ending wasn’t bad enough, Minnesota is coming off of a 27-24 overtime loss in Week 1 to the Cincinnati Bengals. After coming back to tie the game at regulation, Vikings’ RB Dalvin Cook fumbled the ball and it was recovered by the Bengals to then lead to a 33-yard field goal as time expired.
Minnesota Vikings fans have already suffered enough and it’s only Week 2
You know the anticipation that you feel leading up to your favorite NFL teams first regular season game? You’re not yet stressing over wins and losses and you can lie to yourself about your team’s chances of making it to the Super Bowl.
It’s safe to say that Vikings’ fans hopes and dreams entering the season have already been crushed after two bitter losses. There’s not much to be positive about considering there’s the conflict between head coach Mike Zimmer and quarterback Kirk Cousins that’s a current stain on the organization.
Things aren’t looking good in Minneapolis and it really doesn’t seem like things are going to improve, either. At least last week Minnesota fans got to wipe their tears away knowing that NFC North rival Green Bay Packers were annihilated by the New Orleans Saints, 38-3.
While Green Bay is dealing with its fair share of issues, Minnesota fans have to accept that the Vikings have a lot of internal issues that need to be faced head-on.
Hang in there, Minnesota fans.
