We gotta quit just hanging in games. Every game we just hang around, hang around, let the team hang around, instead of putting our foot on the gas and going,” Thielen said.

The Vikings offense finished the night with 278 yardas totales, with just 184 coming from the arm of quarterback Kirk Cousins. The offense looked like a rendition of the NFL during the 1980s. The deep ball was nowhere to be found for Minnesota. Cousins himself only attempted three passes past 15 yardas. That’s not going to get it done in the pass happy NFL in 2021, and Thielen knows it.

It’s been a topical discussion of the team under head coach Mike Zimmer. The Vikings have had talented rosters for years but seem stuck in neutral. Ahora 3-4, Minnesota needs to get its act together to reach the playoffs.

In the stacked NFC, it’s gonna take Cousins having more freedom to throw down the field. That didn’t happen last night, and Dallas took advantage. With the loss, Cousins’ infamous primetime record moved to 8-17.
