Minnesota is a really hard place to play and Allen made it look easy on a 75-yard touchdown drive to start the game.
If we expand it to 13, we bring it to 3 other games where the margin was 18. They will travel to Los Angeles to play the Rams on Thursday night, September 27.
The 0-2 Bills are off to a rough start in 2018, and are expected to be in tough against the undefeated Vikings. But Buffalo, which was a 16.5-point underdog in the game, did the seemingly impossible, soundly dispatching Kirk Cousins and Co.
Vikings: Play the Rams in Los Angeles on Thursday night. It's possible he is a Madden computer-created simulation player and that's why the Vikings made a decision to completely ignore him on the field. Turns out the defense was just getting started.
Those are the two words (fit for a website read by people of all ages) that best describe a 16.5-point home favorite embarrassing itself with a completely inept performance against an National Football League bottom-feeder starting a rookie quarterback.
Unai Emery's Arsenal look to arrest defensive problems as Everton come calling
Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a brace, following which Danny Welbeck and Mesut Ozil added two more to the tally. Everton made an excellent start to the game and should have gone ahead inside two minutes.
Cousins had three turnovers, including a lost fumble on a third-down sack inside Minnesota's 20-yard line, on each of the first two possessions.
With running back Dalvin Cook (hamstring) inactive and the score so lopsided, the Vikings set a franchise record for fewest rushing attempts with six. The Bills turned the Vikings into the exact type of team Mike Zimmer doesn't want them to be. At least one very bad gambler dropped $9,000 on a Vikings moneyline bet in Vegas.
Maybe not, but you are supposed to compete and the Vikings failed to do that.
It was really just a sign of things to come for Minnesota on Sunday.
