2020 NFL Week 4: Minnesota Vikings at Houston Texans (maybe)

Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Let’s see what happens, shall we?

As the late, great Gorilla Monsoon may have put it, this Sunday will pit the resistable force against the moveable object when your 0-3 Minnesota Vikings travel to Texas to take on the 0-3 Houston Texans.

Both of these teams have faced pretty stiff competition over the first three weeks, as the combined records of both of their opponents is 8-1 thus far. The Texans have lost to the Kansas City Chiefs, Baltimore Ravens, and...

It’s the Turnovers, stupid.

Before the Tennessee Titans game in Week 3, the Minnesota Vikings were holders of an abysmal time-of-possession ranking. The team ranked dead last in time of possession and was retaining the football just one-third of the time offensively.

With a start like this, it almost makes you long for the off-season

Merry Tuesday, everyone!

Alright, we’re done with the last game, and getting ready for the next. It doesn’t get any easier for the Vikings, as they will head southward to Houston for a showdown at high noon on Sunday against the Texans. The Texans won their division last year, then pulled off a comeback in the wild card round to beat the Bills, then lost in the divisional round via a comeback victory by the Chiefs. If I...

Vikings Receiving Core vs. Stefon Diggs

It’s not an understatement to say that the Minnesota Vikings have been disappointing this year. Despite having realistic playoff and even superbowl aspirations going into the 2020 season, following their week three loss to the Tennessee Titans, the team sports a winless record on the year at 0-3.
