The Minnesota Vikings (5-4) were a perfect 3-for-3 in the red zone against the Washington Redskins (5-3-1) on Sunday. They even found pay dirt more often (3 to 2), yet, the good showing in the red zone wasn’t enough to earn a win in the nation’s capital. A 26-20 defeat to the Redskins dropped the Vikings for their fourth consecutive loss.

Sam Bradford was an efficient 31-of-40 for 307 yards and two touchdowns. His lone interception with 5:44 to play, however, was a major blow as the Vikings were driving and only trailing 23-20.

Besides writing for a living, one of my goals has always been to host a podcast. I have always wanted the podcast to be centered around football and mainly the Minnesota Vikings.

So a few weeks ago I finally bit the procrastination bullet and recorded episode number one of The Donut Club!

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. There isn’t much I can say about the Vikings’ recent slide that hasn’t already been said. It’s amazing to feel like we have to wonder if the team that was once the darling of the NFL will even make the playoffs.

Back to back division losses has brought out all of the skeptics from the fan base. Frankly, can you blame them? The team hasn’t done much in order to gain the faith of fans and after suffering a tremendous amount of major injuries, there doesn’t seem to be a silver lining.

Vikings Territory projected the Vikings final record prior to the season kickoff and as you can see, optimism was at an all-time high. Does it still remain?
