Great News: Josh Dobbs, Ivan Pace Have The Vikings On Track Despite Week 11 Setback…

The Minnesota Vikings seem to be headed for a shot at the postseason, despite their dismal start of losing their first three games.

The Vikings’ five-game winning streak was largely attributed to their trade deadline purchase of a backup quarterback, Kirk Cousins, who had ruptured his Achilles, ending his season.

Rather than taking a risk with inexperienced quarterback Jaren Hall and injured third-team player Nick Mullens, general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah acquired Arizona Cardinals Josh Dobbs. After starting eight games for Arizona, Dobbs was sent to the sidelines by the Cardinals due to Kyler Murray’s impending recovery from a knee injury.

After two outstanding games in which the Vikings nearly pulled off a miracle victory, Dobbs and his colleagues were unsuccessful in their matchup with the Denver Broncos. The Vikings had the lead for most of the game, but in the last quarter, Russell Wilson guided the home team Broncos to victory with a 21–20 score.

The Vikings (6-5) have nothing to scream about in their brew. They are still in the playoff picture, sitting at No. 7, and they have a great chance of moving up to No. 6 and past the Seattle Seahawks. But it seems unlikely that they will be able to unseat the Detroit Lions in the NFC North.

The Lions overcame a 12-point deficit in the last minutes to defeat the Chicago Bears, while the Vikings lost to Denver in the final minute. The Lions now lead the division by two and a half games with an 8-2 record.

Weeks 16 and 18 are the final two games between the Lions and the Vikings. Should the Vikings win both of those games, they would still be behind the Lions unless Detroit loses one more game than the Vikings for the rest of the season.
