Coming into Saturday’s game against the Colts, the Minnesota Vikings had been on a roll since their beat down against the Dallas Cowboys a few weeks ago.

But early Saturday, they ran into a buzz saw in Indianapolis. The Colts came out fast and quickly and buried the Vikings early ,taking a 33-0 lead at the half.

The 4-8 Colts have run, thrown, and played good defense against the Vikings and looked like a juggernaut. It looked like the game was over, at least in the first half.

Fans around the NFL gave the Vikes a hard time for their horrible play early and said not only are they frauds, but they are the worst 10-3 team in the league.

Vikings fans even booed their team Saturday for their poor performance early on.

The Vikings can score a lot of points, but their defense seems to give up a lot of points as well. Their best win may have been against the Buffalo Bills and they were lucky to win that game. If they continue to play the way they did in the first half here in the playoffs, they may not be set for a long playoff run.
