Let me review their losses (because I now live in Florida and have watched all of their games) ...
Giants (they were up big in that game and should have won that. As a real young team they just choked up and let the SB Champs come back. It took a monster effort in the 2nd half by Eli to pull this off.)
Cowboys (they had no business losing that game. They dominated the Cowboys for most of that game however Schiano was handcuffing Freeman. If they had an resemblance of an offense they would have blown out the Cowboys like they did the Vikes tonight.)
Redskins (I was at that game. They should have won this one too. However miscues led the them to giving the Redskins a chance and the Skins win it on a last second FG.)
Saints (Another game where they had a huge lead. Just like the Giants they let the Saints back in the game. This time they miraculously tie the game in the closing seconds ... but wait there is some stupid NFL rule where a defender can throw a WR out of bounds and eliminate him from the play ... so a penalty is called and the Bucs lose)
That's their 4 losses. So don't think the Vikes got thrashed by a horrible team tonight. The Vikes can still beat the Texans if the chips fall into the right places.
