The rout is on in Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS, MN - SEPTEMBER 18: Fans clap in unison during a "Viking Chant" before the Minnesota Vikings play against the Green Bay Packers in the first regular season game at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota on September 18, 2016. (Photo by Hannah Foslien/Getty Images) Getty Images

The Texans had a hard time two weeks ago against the Patriots. They’re having an even harder time against the Vikings.

Minnesota leads 24-0 in the second quarter, after a 79-yard punt return from Marcus Sherels.

The score came only three snaps after Vikings safety Harrison Smith dropped an interception in the flat, that he easily would have returned for a touchdown.

The Texans have been unable to get anything going offensively, just like that Thursday night in Foxboro.

    Osweiller is an embarrassment to the great state of football.

  4. tjacks7 says: Oct 9, 2016 2:16 PM

    At least the refs are trying to give Houston a chance with the weakest pass interference call in NFL history.

    I love my Team

    Osweiler doesn’t look like the guy. There’s blood in the water and the feeding frenzy is on.

  7. rabidbillsfan says: Oct 9, 2016 2:18 PM

    Everybody is drooling over Toms Knob as he lights up the browns(The Browns, people), yet ignore possibly the best team in the NFL, and by far the best in the NFC. Go Vikes.

  8. tjacks7 says: Oct 9, 2016 2:24 PM

    Man, are these the Packers refs? Terrible offsides call on 4th down. So predictable.

    Lol@texans wasting all that money on osweiler

  11. realfootballfan says: Oct 9, 2016 2:29 PM

    Like I said when they signed Osweiler, who was statistically Brian Hoyer down the stretch last year, without the coaches meeting him, who was going to take the fall for that at the end of the year, the guy who didn’t meet him and probably didn’t want him or the GM who apparently has farm animal pictures of the owner who also wanted him? Yeah, might want to get the resume together Bill O’Brien.

    Too true. 2 point greater differential at the half and against a team that isn’t the Browns.

    Zimmer came over from Cincinnati. The Cincinnati Zoo killed Harambe. The Vikings pay tribute to Harambe during pregame. Coincidence?

  23. idiedpretty says: Oct 9, 2016 3:31 PM

    Lesson to the Texans. Don’t pay a kid $72M who has only 7 starts, mediocre stats, was carried by his defense based on a phone call with the owner!! Like maybe the HC would have like to have met him in person??

    It does my heart untold good to know that you can’t even enjoy the best start the Vikings have had in a very long time because the Packers own every inch of you and always will.

    Packers were 1-0 when we played them.
    Tennessee was 0-0.
    Carolina was 1-1.
    Giants 2-1.
    Houston 3-1.

    All winning teams or .500 at the time. We’ve had decent opponents, and still drubbed them.

    Life in Purple is good.

    Schedule just gets easier. Philly is the only tough game left.

  26. coltluger says: Oct 9, 2016 3:44 PM

    National coverage switched to PIT-NYJ. You know it’s a beat down. I guess the Texans are really, really beating themselves.

    It’s always a good day when the Vikings win. Now let’s hope the Giants can smash the Packers tonight and today will be a great day.

    The Almighty brussel sprout is off the chain watching a historic defense emerge and knowing his teams future is all but over. If it makes you so mad quit reading Viking posts. Living rent free in right between you’re ears.

    so are we done with talking about the Houston Texans being any good? Every year….”they have tough defense”….garbage…their coach is a a complete chucklehead, one can see this by just watching the guy on the sidelines. I expected the Vikes to win this game, but for Houston to not even show up? Pathetic.

  44. dirtyhelmet says: Oct 9, 2016 5:02 PM

    I’m really starting to enjoy cabbage and coyote coming on and commenting on every Vikings win. I get a good chuckle when I picture them typing angrily with tears in their eyes and the lower lip poking out.

  45. littleman8001 says: Oct 9, 2016 5:12 PM

    Can we quit with this notion that this loss falls on the shoulders of Osweiler? The defense gave up 24 points and special teams gave up 7. They were out matched in every phase of the game. As much as I wanted the Texans to win, this is simply what happens when they play a great team. We are a good team that’s capable of beating other good or worse teams but get crushed by great complete teams. Like them or not (I like them ) but the Vikings this year are a great team. Congrats on the win.

    Hey cabbage, remember a couple January’s ago, when you had a 13 pt lead with 4 min to go, in the NFC championship game?

    And you BLEW it?? At least that one was so bad it helped you forget about the 4th and 26 in Philly….that was another choke…

    But go to bed tonight knowing your team owns the all time choke record, ever…..choke choke choke….

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Coming from a guy whose team was leading by 16 points at the half, by 12 points with 10 to go in the game, leading by 5 with 2 minutes to go (and about to get the ball back to run out the clock) in the NFC Championship Game a few years ago…

    Do you need me to remind how your squad was celebrating their “win” prematurely by going over what happened in the last two minutes and overtime?

  57. idurenn says: Oct 10, 2016 10:41 AM

    This is fun.

    I hate to get too excited, because I’ve been let down by the Vikings too many times before.

    I foresee 2 losses over the next 11 regular season games….if that.

    14-2.

  58. packerenglishmajor says: Oct 11, 2016 5:51 PM

    To this Day I remember USDCoyote crying on his keyboard after the Pack choke to the S-hawks.

    He’s such a rube he was literally asking people to feel sorry for him (them?).

    To quote the noted buffoon authority Bugs Bunny: “What a maroon”!
