Not overreacting here. I realize this is only one loss, and it's way early in the season but the thought crossed my mind. I mean I know we're a real good team and almost certainly a playoff team, maybe just not Super Bowl favorites or even deserving of #1 in the power rankings. Just trying to honestly evaluate where the team is at. Hopefully we'll go on a tear from this point forward and be dominate again.
No, this is the most complete team in the NFL that had a bad game and had to travel to the East Coast and play a 10AM body-clock game.
They were amped for us, we were coming off a high. We came out flat and they came out hot. It's very hard to come back from that on the road.
Sometimes a team is not in rhythm and this was one of those days. We played down, and they played perfect. Congrats to them on the win. We will have a better season.
Credit the Vikings, but this does come off as a flukish loss. We will know more after this upcoming week
