It was a disaster for the Minnesota
Things could have been a little easier had the Vikings played defense.
With constant scoring, Kirk Cousins and his 422 yards were just not enough for a win. It's been a rough start for a Minnesota defense that was the best in the league just a season ago in total yards allowed per game.

"We've never been -- probably anywhere I've ever been -- we've never been this poor in pass coverage, so we're going to look at everything we're doing and get back to doing things correctly," Zimmer said.
"A little perspective. The @Vikings started the season 5-0 in 2016 and missed the playoffs. In 2017, they were 2-2 and down to their third QB and went to the NFC Championship Game. This core is as resilient as any. They've been through the muck." - @PSchrags on MIN's slow start. pic.twitter.com/ymax2FdR1z— GMFB (@gmfb) September 28, 2018
The Vikings have things to clean up, more defense than anything else.
Cousins is the perfect man for the offense and has been playing exceptionally this season. It is not 'panic' mode for Minnesota yet. But, the defense needs to wake up and fast.
