The Minnesota Vikings lose are crushed by the talons of the Seattle Seahawks on December 6, 2015 at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota. With the loss the Vikings fall to 8-4 and have lost the last two home games. The Seahawks, now 7-5, looked like the Seattle squad from the past few years.
There were not too many high points for Vikings fans this afternoon. Teddy Bridgewater threw for 118 yards, no touchdowns and one interception, a pass that missed the receiver high and was recovered by the defender. Adrian Peterson was limited to 18 yards on eight carries. The longest reception went to Mike Wallace for 25 yards, almost one quarter of the Vikings’ total yards on the day.
In the press conference after the game, head coach Mike Wallace said that the team was “not as good as we think we are” and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater agreed with the sentiment when questioned about it.
With just four days before they play their next game, Thursday in Arizona, coach Zimmer said that the team needs to put this game in their past and, starting tonight, put all their focus on Arizona.
The Vikings will play at home next on December 20 against the Chicago Bears, followed by hosting the New York Giants a week later and, on January 3, 2016, they will wrap up the regular season at Green Bay. With two divisional games remaining and a record tied with Green Bay, the Vikings will likely need to win the rest of their games to stay in the playoff hunt.
