What’s next for the Vikings?
The Minnesota Vikings stayed in the game for three quarters, but interceptions on back-to-back drives allowed the Seattle Seahawks to pull away for 41-20 victory at CenturyLink Field. The offense was okay in the first half, but horrible in the second half. The defense was okay in the first half and good in the second half before wearing down.

The Minnesota Vikings have only one win through the first quarter of the season, but Cordarrelle Patterson, Xavier Rhodes and Marcus Sherels have played well. The Vikings need Chad Greenway, Erin Henderson, the offensive line and Christian Ponder to step up to get the team back on the right track.
Kyle Rudolph has some of the surest hands in the NFL, with a 6-foot-6, 260-pound frame fit for the type of tight end who can be one of his team’s best passing targets. As long as he plays for the Minnesota Vikings, though, his potential is probably not on track to become the next Tony Gonzalez. No matter how much ability Rudolph has as a receiver, run blocking must be an equally important part of his skill set. “There aren’t very many guys in our game anymore who are doing the run blocking and the pass catching,” Rudolph said.
The Minnesota Vikings have two picks in the first round of the NFL draft and one big hole in the middle of their defense.
