Vikings have one of their worst defensive performances, ever
Not only were the Vikings on the wrong side of the NFL's first six-touchdown day since Gale Sayers in 1965, but the Vikings generally had one of their worst defensive performances in team history.
The 52 points allowed by the Vikings are the first time since 1984 that the Vikings have given up 50 or more points, a loss of 51-7 against the 49ers during the Les Steckel debacle in one season.
It is also most of the points the Vikings have allowed in since 1963, when the Cardinals defeated the Vikings at 56-14 in the third year of their existence in Minnesota.
The Vikings have another 50-point game against them: 1961 against the Bears, a loss of 52:35.
Yes, today was the worst for the Minnesota defense, in a season where there was still half-plausible hope of playoffs before the game started. Now? Not.
The show underscores the reality that by 2021, many people in the organization will be in a hot seat. However, given the way things have gone since Mike Zimmer became head coach in 2014, next year will culminate in a guaranteed playoff spot. The Vikings make it in the odd years and miss the postseason in the even years.
