1. Roundly outplayed, roundly outcoached.

Just a good old fashioned butt kicking all around. It was a hugely disappointing effort; a 34-6 beatdown at home against an average team is disheartening no matter the postseason implications, but this one was even more depressing because of what was at stake. The Vikings desperately needed a win to give them a chance at the playoffs. Instead, they didn’t even show up.

I don’t know what else to say about this game. With these Monday morning posts, I generally try to stay away from recapping the games, and instead aim to put what happened into context.

Co-Hosts BJ Reidell and Drew Mahowald (NFCN Barroom) bring back do-it-all Vikings analyst Austin Belisle to help determine just how great of a threat quarterback Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts are to the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium on Episode 31 of the About the Labor.

Primary talking points include running back Adrian Peterson’s return to the practice field, the complete lack of talent surrounding Luck with exception to big play wide receiver T.Y. Hilton, an Indianapolis defense ravaged by injury and featuring essentially zero big-time playmakers and praise for all-time kicking legend Adam Vinatieri.
