This week’s edition is far more enjoyable than last week’s (where Anthony Barr ran away with the voting) as the 26-16 win over Detroit featured a much better on-field display from Mike Zimmer’s Vikings.
Once again, the Vikings appear to have escaped the game without any major injuries to fret about (apologies if that turns out to be untrue) and they got their first home win, first divisional victory and first overall victory all taken care of in Week Two.
This team looked very different from what we saw in San Francisco. Matt Stafford looked flat-out defeated by the fourth quarter. The Lions ran nowhere. Our offense wasn’t exactly high-flying, but it was efficient and productive. The special teams was mistake-free outside of the obligatory Blair Walsh miss that needs to be discussed in greater detail later this week.
For now, we focus on the positives, and want you to help us assign this week’s award for Player of the Game.
