Jackson is the Lions’ starter at left guard, so his absence is likely going to be notable for the Detroit offensive line. All four...

SB Nation Reacts: Confidence in Vikings drops after loss

Photo by Kyle Ross/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

As expected

As I’ve mentioned in this space before, in the time that we’ve been doing SB Nation Reacts questions about the Minnesota Vikings, very few teams across the SB Nation family of websites have had confidence results that have fluctuated as much as ours do. Following the team’s first loss of the season, we’re seeing that trend get started again.

After 94% of Vikings fans said that they were confident that this team...

Nincompoop of the Week: Week 2, 2022

Photo by Kyle Ross/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

It was a rough week. Let’s just jump right in.

Irv Smith Jr.

Irv Christian Watson’d the deep pass that would’ve brought the team back in the game. That alone is enough for a nomination. The worst part about it was that wasn’t his only bad play of the game. There were several key spots early in the game Kirk looked his way and he just couldn’t make the catch. Irv is a big bodied receiver that hasn’t learned to box out the...

Monday’s Best

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

There isn’t much to write about positively after the dumpster fire Monday night. Not everyone played poorly though. Here are my best from Monday.

Ryan Wright

Ryan Wright is the punter for those who don’t know. His kicks were superb. He had 3 of his 5 punts inside of the 20. He pinned the Eagles deep all game. However, the defense let them off the hook.

Greg Joseph

Greg the Leg is still perfect on the year. His kickoffs, however, are what got him on my...
