That 5-0 start really skewed perceptions, huh? Here we are, sitting at 7-6, with a 19 percent chance of making the playoffs. It’s been a rocky ride, to say the least, and there’s no knowing how it’ll end. One thing’s true, though — 2016 has been a disappointing season for the Minnesota Vikings.

The offseason found our cups full of Purple Kool-Aid; Teddy Bridgewater was set to take the “next step,” Adrian Peterson had just won his third rushing title, and Mike Zimmer’s defense was on the brink of dominance. Some of that optimism took hold, but for the most part, expectations dissipated with every devastating injury.

Minnesota Vikings - Jakcsonville Jaguars

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings completed the first 25% of Operation Win Out, downing the Jacksonville Jaguars 25-16 Sunday at Historic Everbank Field. Sam Bradford and the offense opened things up deep, but still had familiar short-yardage struggles that kept this game closer than it should have been. Oh, and the defense is still pretty pretty pretty good.

Talkers Include:
• I Love that the Offense Went YOLO
• The Mandatory Offensive Line Talking Point
• The Defense is Rock Solid Still
• Anthony Harris Evaluation
• The Matt Asiata Experience
• Pay Adam Thielen
