Since Gale Sayers in 1965, the Vikings have not only been on the wrong side in the NFL’s first six touchdowns, but the Vikings are usually on the defensive history of their team. One of the worst.
Since 1984, the 52 points allowed by the Vikings became the first time the Vikings surrendered 50 points or more. This was the 51-7 blowout loss of the 49ers during the fiasco of Les Steckel in a single season.
This is also the highest score allowed by the Vikings since the cardinal defeated the Vikings 56-14 in the third year since the founding of the cardinal in Minnesota in 1963.
The Vikings also have another 50-point confrontation game: they lost 52-35 points against the Bears in 1961.
So yes, today’s situation is as bad as the state of Minnesota’s defense. In this season, before the start of the game, there is still hope that the playoffs will be abandoned halfway. right now? Do not.
The display highlights the reality that by 2021, there will be many people in the organization sitting in hot positions. Since Mike Zimmer became the head coach in 2014, things have passed, but next year will be guaranteed a place in the playoffs. The Vikings marched in odd years and they missed the playoffs in even years.
