It's a tough one.

I think the Defense played well enough to win, offense was asleep for 3 quarters and they put the D in a bad position.

They did struggle to get consistent pressure but managed to slow Cook down in the 2nd half.

Nah. They played their hard-hitting back. We didn’t.

Offense was bad but they allowed Cook to get big yards and a bad offense in Minny put up 26

Re: One thing worried me since 2017

I think losing two starting d-lineman had a huge impact. We did a great job of patching that line, but it exposed a very weak and sketchy defensive backfield.

At times the defense played like crap, they came on in the 2nd half.
Offense was non-existent for 3.5 quarters.
Special teams missed a field goal. Why? Did the A/C make it drift?

Breakdowns at every phase of the game and we definitely got outcoached.

We held Minny to 20 points in regulation, and we lost 2 of our top 3 D-linemen and our #2 CB.

I don't think Dennis Allen was a problem.

Our defense did their job. I can’t blame them one bit. I would love to know why Lattimore had to be separated from Aaron Glenn though. Is there some turmoil in the DB room?

Lattimore lost the ball in the lights and Thielen put a dagger in us

Lattimore was owned by Thielen today and MW was no help.
