Given the play, I'm guessing there won't be much activity here. Is this too early to be a must win?

 

Anyways, there should be a good conversation over at purple pain if you want to chat Vikings today:

I'd rather gouge my eyes out.

I think this is winnable, at this point I just want to see the defense look competent again.

My neighbor in Nevada is a diehard Vikings fan, and he still holds out hope for the season. I tried not to be too obviously pitying when we visited last week.

yeah, the D needs to turn it around, and do so quickly, or this season is toast.

I'd say it's about as close to a must win game as you can have in week 5.

If they lose today, they'd likely have to go 9-2 the final 11 to guarantee a playoff spot.

KC looks legit.

I remain hopeful on Buxton and Sano.....but I'd not bet the franchise on them.

This is a big game. I'm hopeful the defense figured it out. Eliminate the big play today and that will be a major improvement.

Elflein's mobility is on display this drive.Might help the run game a lot.

Theories on what we have to do to Blair Walsh to break the curse? Or is it Gary Anderson?

Especially painful after watching the way the Giants lost.

These dumb pass plays on 3rd and 2 are becoming problematic. They are getting a good push up front, run the ball. They already converted once, keep doing it.

Team looks good to start the game though, eagles are a little flat.

not sure I'd call 3-3 looking good. Offense missed a FG in the redzone and coudln't get 6 on two trips there. Eagles get one nice play to tie it up.

I was going for a fat guy dance, but he only hit a home run... and blew kisses.

hopefully the Z-fence can keep this up for more than 1/2 a football game.
