Before today, the last time a Minnesota Vikings player scored four touchdowns in one game was Ahmad Rashaad in 1979. 41 years ago.
A lot of you cats weren’t even born yet. And the next time it happens, a lot of us might not be alive.
The Vikings aren’t a good football team, which is why fans of the Green Bay Packers should be worried that their defense got shredded for the 2nd time in three weeks on Sunday. The last time was to a good football team. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers lead by Tom Brady.
The road to the Superbowl will run through the Bucs or the Seattle Seahawks, who have been truly the best team in the NFC at this point.
Packers defensive coordinator Mike Pettine and Head Coach Matt LaFleur need to come up with something quickly. While the Pack is still 5-2, home field will be important this year. You want Brady or Russell Wilson to come here in January, but you guys already know that.
The frustrating part is just being torn apart by one player. Four touchdowns and over 200 yards from scrimmage for Cook. Green Bay just didn’t have an answer for the former Florida State Seminole. They can’t allow one player to take them out like that.
Luckily the damage isn’t too bad. The Vikings are still 2-5 and still have a long road back. The Chicago Bears decided they wanted to play Mike Tyson’s Punchout with the New Orleans Saints and lost to fall to 5-3, There shouldn’t be panic. Green Bay is still in first place.
But there should definitely be concern.
