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.

When news began to spread of a serious knee injury to Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater on the afternoon of August 30th this past summer, the hope for many was for this kid to be okay. When Bridgewater went down to the ground that day at practice, the Vikings’ medical staff immediately knew that this was no ordinary football injury.

The fact that an ambulance had to be called to get the quarterback to a hospital minutes after the injury initially occurred should tell someone just how serious it was.

The hope for Minnesota and their young quarterback is that he will make a full recovery and eventually return to the field one day to throw his first regular season touchdown in U.S. Bank Stadium. That is just a hope for now because no one truly knows if Bridgewater will ever be able to make it back onto the football field.

Minnesota Vikings-Philadelphia Eagles

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings kinda shart the bed Sunday in Philadelphia, racking up their first loss of the season 21-10 in a game that wasn’t even that close. Sam Bradford didn’t show well in his return to Philly (play calling and the offensive line didn’t help) and the Zimmer Hellfire Defense got after Carson Wentz, but missed opportunities and mental errors hallmarked the first L of the 2016 campaign.

The Vikings Were The Night Man Talking Points Include:
• This Was a Failure in All Phases
• This Offensive Line is Why the Vikings Will Not Win a Super Bowl
• More Like Sam BADford Today
• Norv Went Back to Being Norv
• Now We Get to See What Kind of Coach Zimmer Is
• Special Teams Were “Special”
• Matt Asiata Appreciation Talking Point
• Even More Injuries
• I Kinda Respect Carson Wentz’s DGAF Attitude
• How Will this Team Rebound?

Coping with the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings Bye Week Blues with a fun little film session with my man Luke Inman of Cold Omaha. Luke is a prodigious breaker downer of the tape and we sat and looked back at a few major plays from the first five games of the Purple’s season. What makes this potentially all-time great Zimmer defense tick? Why is Sam Bradford finding quick success here in Minnesota? How is the offensive line THIS terrible? Tape don’t lie. Follow along with the clips listed below.
