Bills vs. Vikings: Minnesota aims for easy win against struggling Buffalo

Thankfully for them, the Vikings didn't do anything about it either. "So it's embarrassing on our part, the performance that we put forth today, and it's a shame it was here at home in front of our fans". Right now, they don't deserve any respect amongst the league.

Wide receiver Adam Thielen called it "butt-whooping". The Vikings' record for attempts is 63 (1981, 1991).

Told about White using his catchphrase, Cousins shrugged and said that is "pretty much the most common thing I hear on the field".

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen dives for extra yardage during the first half of an NFL football game against the Minnesota Vikings, Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018, in Minneapolis. The Bills gashed Minnesota every which way, with the D giving up 128 rushing yards, allowing Allen to go 15-of-22 passing for 196 yards and a touchdown, and failing to contain an offense that had no business running the Vikings out of their own stadium.

55 Kirk Cousins attempted a whopping 55 passes, completing 40.

Cousins especially hurt the Vikings (1-1-1) by losing fumbles on consecutive first-half possessions. Two plays later, Allen threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to Jason Croom for a 17-0 lead.

But that needle looked broken beyond fix as days without a win grew to months, the months without a win grew to years. Only when he was on the green, the last one to putt after Rory McIlroy tapped in for birdie, did it start to sink in.

"He had always given me a hard time when I played him, so I just felt that these guys were going to be a challenge", Cousins said, "and they were". Bailey never left the sideline Sunday other than to boot the opening kickoff and another one following the Vikings' meaningless TD late in the fourth quarter. Costly penalties on special teams hurt the Vikings in the field-position game. "I think a lot of people were underestimating the Buffalo Bills last week".

Records were also broken elsewhere as Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes led his side to a 38-27 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Coming off two embarrassing losses in a row, one short week removed from the weird Vontae Davis situation, on the road in one of the loudest stadiums in football, and then running back LeSean McCoy was ruled out for the game, it seemed Buffalo had absolutely zero shot at even scoring points on Sunday.

The Vikings nearly made history with their futility running the ball. That will again be the case in Week 3 as running back Dalvin Cook will likely not be playing as he's nursing an injury. This is the type of game that can wake a team up, or have the season spiral out of control.

"It's a short week and we're going up against a good team", Weatherly said. "I obviously didn't do a well enough job preparing this football team for this game".

After being outscored 75-9 over their first six quarters of the season, the Bills have enjoyed a 41-9 advantage over the last six periods. Griffen was not at the game, and Zimmer said he was dealing with a "personal matter.".
