2. Vikings defense responded with tenacity
Head coach Mike Zimmer comments often about wanting to see his team fight through adversity. He certainly saw that on Sunday at Lambeau Field. The Vikings were down 21-0 after Green Bay’s first three possessions. From that point on, though, the Vikings defense was dominant. Green Bay’s final 11 possessions ended like this: fumble, punt, punt, downs, punt, fumble, punt, punt, punt, punt, punt. In that span, Green Bay was just two of 12 on 3rd downs and they had six drives of four plays or fewer. The tape of this game will provide Zimmer and the defensive staff with plenty of teaching material – both constructive criticism and a model of how things should be done.
