Team Grades: Offensive Ineptitude And Late Defensive Collapse Cost Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings stalled in the red zone and the Buffalo Bills scored in the final seconds for the game-winning score. The Vikings fell to 2-5 with a 17-16 defeat Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium. The Vikings defense was very good, with the exception of a few plays and the game’s final drive. The offense was a disappointment again and Bridgewater is still a work in progress. The special teams were below average.

Against Packers, Vikings Just Got Run Over

The problems for the Minnesota Vikings with Christian Ponder at quarterback were obvious from the start. Their list of missing players on offense has grown long and increasingly conspicuous.

With Bridgewater Uncertain, Ponder Waits In Wings

Teddy Bridgewater is progressing. But will he be ready for kickoff against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday? It could be a game-day decision. Remember two years ago when Christian Ponder had to give way to Joe Webb in the playoffs? It’s ironic that Ponder now serves as the backup. He’s waiting in the wings to prove he can still play.
