The Minnesota Vikings are at full strength as they host the Arizona Cardinals in Week 10. For a team that’s dealt with major injuries from the very beginning of 2016, the clean bill of health couldn’t come at a better time.

Facing the prospects of a five-game losing streak, it’s imperative the Vikings win this afternoon and improve their playoff chances. That may be easier than expected, as the Cardinals are without a few of their impact players.

The Vikings’ full list of inactive players includes:

  • QB Taylor Heinicke
  • WR Jarius Wright
  • LB Edmond Robinson
  • G Zac Kerin
  • T Rashod Hill
  • DT Sharrif Floyd
  • TE David Morgan

Okay, seriously what is going on with this team? Four losses in a row now for the Minnesota Vikings after winning their first five games of the season? Get it together guys.

Any momentum the Vikings had from the early part of the year has now disintegrated and instead the team can now be found in an above ground pool of sorrows at Minnesota’s practice facility.

Playoffs are really beginning to become a silly assumption because this team his given no one any reason to think that they are capable of making it into the NFL’s second season. But before they even say the word playoffs again, the Vikings need to actually win a game.

Perhaps the Minnesota coaching staff should save this weekly article to their Google Chrome favorites from now on instead of using all of their years of fancy experience to try and win their games.

I am sorry to have to say the Vikings have lost again. This is the first time since 2013 the Vikings have lost four games in a row.

Even though things are looking bleak right now, I am still looking at this season with positive eyes. The Vikings are playing the Cardinals this week and have not lost to the Cardinals at home game since 1977. I hope that this game will pull the Vikings out of their losing streak, back into a winning streak, and straight to the Super Bowl.

This week I decided to make a cheese dip and let me tell you, I am ecstatic that I chose this dish. I love every dish I have made, but it has been a really long time since I have made a dish that makes me melt in enjoyment. I truly feel I have never made a dish where the flavors are married together so well. When I was eating the dip, I just took a bite and let it sit in my mouth so my tongue could get a glimpse of every flavor and it was heavenly.

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.

Possessions: 3
Touchdowns: 3
Field Goals: 0
