Week Nine Highlights Will Feature The Likes Of Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, Everson Griffen and Chad Greenway.

The Minnesota Vikings offense, particularly the offensive line, looked improved with Pat Shurmur calling the plays instead of Norv Turner. Still, they could not get the job done when they most needed to, and the Vikings lost in overtime to the Detroit Lions by a margin of 22-16.

The offense wasn’t entirely to blame, with Blair Walsh costing them points and the defense struggling to maintain their dominant ways, and this three game slide is getting old quick. Still, the Vikings remain in first place (barely) of the NFC North and there is still a half of a season left to get things figured out.

Now, in our third straight week, we face the less-fun task of anointing a “Player of the Game” via your voting in the poll at the bottom.

Minnesota Vikings - Detroit Lions

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings’ Death Spiral 2016 Tour continued rolling along Sunday afternoon at historic US Bank Stadium as the Purple dropped to the Detroit Lions 22-16 in extra football time.

It was a close one that had the Minnesota Vikings and their fans on the edge of their seats, but the Detroit Lions handed the team in purple their first home loss of the season with a 22-16 win in overtime on Sunday. With the loss the Vikings fall to 5-3 this year and are quickly losing their hopes at capturing NFC North division crown for a second straight season.

After starting the year 5-0, Minnesota has yet to win a game since coming off of their Week 6 bye.

Down Two Starters Against Lions

Facing the prospect of a three-game slide, the Minnesota Vikings are down two starters against the Detroit Lions this afternoon. Both Alex Boone and Eric Kendricks will miss this week’s game with concussions suffered in the team’s Week 9 loss, a drubbing at the hands of the Chicago Bears.

As expected, Audie Cole will start in Kendricks’ place and Jeremiah Sirles will start at left guard for Boone. This isn’t the first time the Vikings have been without key contributors; Andrew Sendejo, Jerick McKinnon, and Marcus Sherels all missed last week’s game, though they’re slated to return against the Lions.

It was a scary Halloween for sure. Regrettably, the Vikings have lost another game.

The Vikings are now 5-2 but still in first place in their division. In 2015, the Vikings won both of the games they played against the Detroit Lions so I know if we all think positive, the Vikings will win and ensure their spot in first place.

I know that some people have a genuine distaste for hot dogs, but I am not one of those people. I love hot dogs and can eat them nearly every day. When I go to any type of football, basketball, or baseball game I always feel the need for 2 things: hot dogs and nachos, so it is no surprise that I needed to have hot dogs in some nature as a game day dish.
