Give an assist on the FG to E. Griffen. Vikings with 105 yes in penalties, another undisciplined under head coach, Leslie Frazier.

Vikes have perfected the new "toast" defense.

Is it too soon to start doing mock drafts? We need a quarterback and a coaching change for next season.

They say Defense wins Championships, but as we saw today, penalties lose games.

Colts were far better team today. 49ers next.

Yes, we do need a QB and a head coach, but not next year, how about this year??? How about next week!! Penalties, stupid play-calling and an absolute almost league-worst on pass defense will get you exactly what the Vikings got today! Man, this is going to be a year we may want to forget! Such a shame...the whole season already is a goner!

I hate to say this! I only see the possibility of 1 or 2 victories in the rest of the schedule and even if we get the first selection in the draft, is there a college quarterback that is clearly NFL material? We have so many holes to fill, it will take years!

Question: And yes this was not the reason the Vikes lost...I have watched the Colts final field goal a few times on DVR and when Luck spikes the ball they get about 50 sec. to get set up and kick the field goal. If you watch you will even see the play clock run down to zero about ten secs before he kicks it. Anyone know why that was not a delay of game? Just asking...

Vikes showed some heart with another comeback, but their secondary needs major work. That swiss cheese cover 2 D just doesn't work. Game would have been real ugly without Harvin. We need another legit WR, a quality SS (raymond sucks), cover corners and fewer penalties.
