The Vikings are outplaying the Buccaneers today in Tampa Bay. At every position except kicker.

Minnesota kicker Dan Bailey has missed an extra point and two field goals, and as a result the Buccaneers are beating the Vikings 7-6.

The Vikings’ offense has moved the ball well, with accurate passing from Kirk Cousins and tough running from Dalvin Cook, and the Vikings’ defense was frustrating Tom Brady early. But Brady settled down, hit Scotty Miller for a 48-yard touchdown pass, and the Buccaneers took a 7-6 lead.

Bailey may need to make some kicks in the second half to save the Vikings’ playoff hopes, and to save his own job.

  1. Seriously what did the Vikings do to anger the kicking gods? This is ridiculous.he’s been missing ex points and field goals all year and zimmer keeps him

  2. Are you sure Vikings are of playing the Bucs? Sure doesn’t look it to me. I really don’t think their kicker is their only problem.

  3. First time I have ever seen a PI call on a Hail Mary. Vikings got jobbed on that call.

  4. The kicker missed an extra point, a chip shot field goal and then Zimmer marches him out there for a 54 yard kick?

    What else was he expecting besides one of the worst shanks of the year. Coaching like that helped the Bucs stay in the game.

  5. Why can’t this team EVER click on all cylinders? It’s always something. Curse of the Vikings.

  6. he missed again, cost us the game, the season, hope it cost him job, CUT HIM Immediately after the game

  7. As a Vikings fan, they’re just a average team with average players. Zimmer will never get Vikings to Superbowl. I’m calling for Zim to be fired so as Spielman.

    Context.

    Try a field-goal and get 3 points or try to go for a hail Mary after Cousins just took 2 sacks for 20 yards…

  9. Hang down your head Dan Bailey, Hang down your head and Cry, Hang down your head Dan Bailey, the Viking’s will hang you out to dry.
