He still has room for growth in the "don't get called for silly clipping" department.


But he's got the diva WR "argue with the officials on every play" part nailed!

I love him and I'm stoked the Vikings found gold but he doesn't do the whole "aw shucks" Minnesota bit. Actually, I guess that's fine by me, I've grown tired of that mentality.

Awful clock management there at the end of the half.

Don't agree. The number one goal is to avoid quick three and out and give Falcons short field to score.

It's still Case Keenum.

I'm referring to later in the drive. They didn't use the sideline once. You don't win by playing scared.

That's fair. I don't think it was fear though, they did push up the field.

Playing scared again.

1st and 25: -1 yard swing pass.
2nd and 26: -2 yard swing pass.

Giving up on a drive on 1st down, in a 5 point game. Not a fan. I get it's a tough spot, but at least try to get 7 or 8 yards, and get yourself a 3rd and 9 or 10.

Huge conversion there. Don't let up, score 6 here.

I'm admittedly a bandwagon football fan, but that is a really solid win. Vikes are tough and built well, no outcome would surprise me this season.

I'm also very bandwagon, and despite only 14 points today it's hard to be anything but impressed with how the offense performed.

On the road, against the reigning conference champions, yeah, pretty much any W is impressive.

This team looks like it's for real.

Surprisingly undisciplined defense here in the early going.
Drive extended twice by careless and unnecessary facemasks.

Anthony Barr is having a rough day.
He's a good player, obviously, but he also has spells where he just disappears.

Wow, wth is going on with these Vikings? They look shellshocked. Perfect route, perfect pass, wide open Rudolph just drops it.

On a positive note, Trae Waynes is really playing well right now.

Come on, a TD here eliminates a lot of rough first half play.

Keenum throws 3 consecutive TD passes and comes away with zero points due to one stellar defensive play and two near misses by his receivers.

Down 1 at half, on the road, to a pretty good team, not a terrible position to be in.

No, not all, considering how they've played.
Hopefully they come out more focused in the second half.

That wasn't an impressive start to the half though.
