New week, same result

We'll let you assign some goat horns while we go down and work the locker room after another second-half meltdown. This one was worse that last week. Vikings outscored 24-3 in the second half by a team they were dominating 17-0 at halftime.

This is only the second time in franchise history the Vikings have posted back-to-back 0-2 starts.

And here come the Lions, who beat the Bills 48-3.
