FinalL 16 - 17
The more things change, it seems, the more they stay the same. For 57 of 60 game minutes, the Minnesota Vikings were either tied with or lead the Buffalo Bills, including the entirety of the third and fourth quarters. Of course, they lost on the last offensive play of the game when Kyle Orton hit Sammy Watkins for the game winning score with two seconds left. I can handle losing; I'm a VIkings fan, after all. But I hate watching Minnesota lose games...heck, GIVE AWAY games...they should, and could have won. But I've seen this dance far too often, and when the Bills converted that 4th and 20...

Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen tied a career-high three sacks and a forced fumble in the 17-16 loss to the Bills on Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium, and he didn’t feel any personal satisfaction for his individual performance. “No man, we want the victory,”...

There is no pain you are receding A distant ship smoke on the horizon You are only coming through in waves Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse Out of the corner of my eye I turned to look but it was gone I cannot put my finger on it now The...

With all their missing players and a rookie QB, the team simply has not been able to score.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- This is supposedly a new era under Mike Zimmer. But Sunday it looked a lot like Leslie Frazier's last season as Vikings coach.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Chad Greenway now can start a new streak.

My initial reaction from Buffalo, where the Vikings lost 17-16 on a 2-yard pass from Kyle Orton to Sammy Watkins with two seconds left? When did I wake up in 2013? The four-minute offense and the two-minute defense collapsed late in the same game and the Vikings walked off the field shaking their heads following a game-losing touchdown. Sounds like Chicago, Cleveland and Dallas from last season. And sort of like Baltimore, although that was the wildest scoring exhibition by both teams at the end of a game in the history of the NFL. Because the Vikings couldn’t close the deal, a lot of good...

Anyone who has watched enough football knows there are two specific scenarios that give fans a bad feeling about what’s to come: 1) A missed extra point early in the game coming back to haunt and 2) Missed opportunities to pad a lead coming back to haunt. The Gophers (scenario 1) and the Vikings (scenario 2) played games this weekend that followed both of those scripts, and the way both games played out says everything you need to know about each team right now. 1) The moment the Gophers missed an extra point against Purdue, particularly in the manner in which it happened (doinking the...
