With Minnesota Vikings punt returner Marcus Sherels out against the Chicago Bears, a few players may see extra special teams playing time on Monday Night. Sherels injured his wrist in the team’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles last week and will miss his first game since 2011 when he began fielding punts in purple and gold.

One player who could take his place is Cordarrelle Patterson, who was questionable entering the night but passed the NFL’s concussion protocol in time for Monday Night Football. He’s returned punts before but has primarily been a kick returner for the Vikings. Adam Thielen also fielded punts during the preseason but has never taken a regular season snap at the position.

The rest of Minnesota’s inactive players include:

Well everyone, it happened. The Minnesota Vikings finally lost a game in 2016.

But this is good. Now they can focus on more important goals this season than trying to go undefeated. Like getting to a Super Bowl perhaps?

The Vikings will be looking to rebound this week against the Chicago Bears. Minnesota is 2-13 in their last 15 games played in Chicago, but this year’s Bears are about as scary as a stuffed animal found at the Vikings’ practice facility.

Before Minnesota takes the field on Monday night, there are a few things they must make sure they do in order to pick up their sixth win of the 2016 season.

It unfortunately happened; the Vikings have lost their first game.

Even though the team lost the game, making them 5-1 for the season, they are still first in their division, and going to the Super Bowl is still in sight (after all only two teams have gone to the Super Bowl undefeated).

I know the Vikings have suffered a great loss and I made a meal representing the opposing team’s city last week and I hate doing the same thing this week but pizza is involved and who doesn’t love pizza?

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings were humbled Sunday for their first loss of the season, but the fanbase still believes head coach Mike Zimmer can Make the Vikings Great Again. To help me explain how is 1500 ESPN’s Gruesome Twosome Derek Wetmore and Phil Mackey. They joined me at Blue Door Pub University to talk some Vikes and eat some burgers (except Phil who’s doing the Whole 30 thing.)

What can be done about the offensive line (if anything)? Pete Carroll’s comments were taken EXTREMELY out of context, right? Plus a couple of random Brett Favre takes, media critiques, and a little role playing for a Sam Bradford press conference. #Chorizo
