The Minnesota Vikings haven’t looked good at all through the first two weeks of the season.
Dropping their home opener to Baker Mayfield and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers sounded off some alarms, especially given the way they failed to take care of the football.
Unsurprisingly, that only got worse in the second game of the season, as they faced an elite Philadelphia Eagles defense with a great nose for the ball.
Even superstar wideout Justin Jefferson had a costly turnover in this game, fumbling the ball in the end zone for a touchback.
That touchdown would’ve put the Vikings on top of the Eagles right before halftime, and the Vikings could never truly recover from it.
Judging by what we’ve seen thus far, former NFL star Plaxico Burress believes the Vikings are going to end up last in the NFC North, via “The Carton Show.”

He stated that he no longer believes the Green Bay Packers are the worst team in the division, predicting that the Detroit Lions will finish in second place right behind the Chicago Bears.
Burress claimed that the Vikings simply cannot run the football, and their defense can’t get any stops, so it’ll all go down to whether Krik Cousins can lead them to success or not.
It’s still early in the campaign and there’s a lot of football left on the schedule.
Still, not many teams can win by averaging 3.5 turnovers per game, not even if their quarterback has the performance of a lifetime.NEXT: Skip Bayless Has Brutal Criticism For Kirk Cousins
