Great effort from our defense but the two scoring drives shows the coaching staff still hasn't learned how to stop a two minute offense. The Vikings only points came with 0:14 to go at the half, and 1:00 to go in the fourth. The scores capped off an 89 yard TD drive and a 76 yard drive that ended in a field goal on 4th and 1 on the Carolina 4 yard line. On the field goal drive third down was an incomplete pass and why the Vikings coaching staff elected not to give Peterson two shots to pick up one yard is beyond me and likely cost them 4 points. The Vikings only had 125 yards of offense outside those two drives, with the next longest drive going for 45 yards. I know the TD was against our second team and it didn't matter because the game was out of hand. The fact remains Carolina spotted a bad team 10 points with prevent defense and soft zone coverage on those drives. Look at the schedule coming up. What do you think Brees (x2) will do against the same defense? What about Brady, Kaepernick and Ryan(x2)?
