Man that looked like our Divisional playoff vs The Greatest Show on Turf without the 2nd half Kickoff and the 3rd qtr meltdown.
The pass rush can't get home. McVay owned Zimmer tonight, however it's tough when guys can't win up front.
Cousins is a player, though our offense had the several chances to take over at crucial moments. They seemed to always be in desperation mode and couldn't make that play when needed. We had a chanc at 17-14 to make it to 24-14, instead 3 & out and next you know 28-17 Rams.
Still we played this juggernaut tough in their house. Hopefully the Rams peaked too early and we get them back in January.
Was the three and out when the Vikings were up 17-14 the series when the dumb asses called two up the middle running plays on 1st and 2nd down? I can't blame Cousins for that.
I swear Zimmer says "if we are ahead at all you must run the ball early and often". It happens all the time with the Vikings, get a lead and just run the damn ball.
Maybe every single RB needs to be cut to take the sharp objects away from Zimmer.
I thought that was a turning point in the game, and highlighted the difference in philosophies between the two teams.
I mentioned it in the game day thread, but it appeared as though our coaching staff were the only people in the world that were unaware that we were in a shootout.
