Vikings-Panthers Recap: The Disaster Artists

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings squandered away numerous opportunities in Charlotte and fell to the Carolina Panthers 31-24 on Sunday. Case Keenum showed off the entire spectrum of Case Keenum, the offensive line was porous and banged up, the receivers had uncharacteristic drops, and the defense suddenly can't stop the run (although we warned y'all about that). But other than that... Everything is peachy!
