Despite what happened in Seattle on Friday night, Mike Zimmer’s secondary isn’t suddenly a weakness.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson tore through Minnesota’s first-team unit, lighting the Vikings up to the tune of 206 yards and two touchdowns. His performance — one of midseason form — put the Seahawks ahead and kept them there, as Seattle went on to defeat Minnesota 20-13.

It was an ugly, uncharacteristic outing by the Vikings, marred by a few-too-many mental lapses early in the game. Granted, Zimmer was down two starters (Andrew Sendejo and Trae Waynes) in the secondary, but it was the players on the field making the mistakes. From the linebackers to an arguably thin group of cornerbacks, few stepped up against one of the NFL’s more dangerous quarterbacks.

“We got to do better in the coverage aspect,” Zimmer said Sunday, per Ben Goessling. “We had, I think, two or three twenty-yard or more plays, so that’s going to be a big point of emphasis for us.”
