Giveaways have been a common thread in Vikings losses this season
His patience has been tested with the suspension of his star running back, myriad kicking issues, near-annual changes at quarterback and offensive coordinator — not to mention his own vision problems in 2016.

As Vikings' bold plans fell short, they ran for 22 yards against the Bears

Examining Vikings' body of work and what's next
The Minnesota Vikings are 5-4-1 on the season, which is not a record that anybody expected to see where things stand this late in the year. As big of a cliche as "you are what your record says you are" is, that seems to be exactly what the case is for a team that has rarely been able to put a string of well-played games together despite having Super Bowl aspirations for this season. 24/7 Sports November 19, 2018

Zulgad: Super bust: Vikings’ season shaping up as massive disappointment
Six games. Twenty-four quarters. One-month and five days. That’s the amount of games, quarters and time (tick, tock) the Vikings have left to salvage this season and make sure that 2018 doesn’t go down as one of the biggest disappointments in franchise history. 1500 ESPN Twin Cities November 19, 2018

Zulgad: Cousins talks a big game, but fails to back it up when it matters most
Kirk Cousins’ pregame address to his Vikings teammates on Sunday in Chicago included this bit of bravado. “They’re not the reason this game moved to prime time,” Cousins was heard saying on NBC. “We are.” 1500 ESPN Twin Cities November 19, 2018

In loss to Bears, Anthony Harris makes his case at safety
Whether the Minnesota Vikings had a good defensive performance on Sunday night in a 25-20 loss to the Chicago Bears would be a good debate. While they allowed 148 yards rushing and 6-for-12 on third downs to Chicago, the Vikings also only gave up 165 yards passing to quarterback Mitch Trubisky and picked him off twice. Both interceptions came from safety Anthony Harris. 1500 ESPN Twin Cities November 19, 2018

Cousins: Vikings will have ‘sense of urgency’ after loss to Bears
Kirk Cousins has been given three opportunities in primetime to give the Minnesota Vikings a signature win. He’s come away 0-for-3. But he will get another opportunity in short order as the Vikings play on Sunday Night Football at US Bank Stadium next week against the Green Bay Packers. 1500 ESPN Twin Cities November 19, 2018
