A much needed and unsurprising win. The Vikes tend to win these regular-season rematches after they get bounced out of the playoffs. I'd rather they win in the playoffs instead, but whatever.
They still have some work to do but they are on the right track.

I feel a lot better about the defense which means I feel a lot better about the team. They looked pretty stout until they went to cover-2 prevent that last drive.
Wentz was good too, he made plenty of nice throws and escaped some dicey situations; his line was bad but the QB wasn't giving away possessions with poor decisions and sloppy play. So it's not like the D got a break facing a good QB who was having an off day.
I want the Buffalo game back and I want the crack at the go ahead TD against LA back, but all in all 2-2-1 isn't too bad with their schedule thus far. And after this stretch, national expectations are drastically reduced. The NFC North isn't particularly tough either; if they have their act together now I like where the Vikings are at. Let the Rams keep carrying this ridiculous banner that they're far and away the best team in the NFC; I don't want that banner.
