Vikings Fall to Seahawks 37-30 in Monday Night Meltdown

Cook had 9 carries for 29 yards and a touchdown, and three catches for 35 yards prior to exiting. They don't play the Vikings this season, so head-to-head won't come into play, but Minnesota has one fewer game against the NFC remaining so the Rams are technically in control of that tiebreaker.

Quarterback Kirk Cousins tries a short pass over the middle to Dalvin Cook, but it falls incomplete. One also has to question him saying he could have returned.

Seattle has been known for their fantastic touchdown dances this year. That gave the Seahawks a first-and-10 at the Vikings 30 instead of making it 2-and-11 at the Vikings 45. Seattle scored on the drive to tie the score at 17. However, the Vikings seemingly went away from everything that has made them successful on offense thus far. Moore said after the game that the receivers decided "We wanted to go back old school a little bit, and New Edition was one thing we all came up with".

It might not be remembered to the extent of Michael Jordan in the NBA Finals, but a couple of Seahawks had big games last night, despite the flu bug that swept through the team last week. Linebacker Eric Wilson started for Gedeon against the Seahawks. "They didn't want any shots thrown on them".

Google founders Larry Page, Sergey Brin step down from Alphabet
Page began working on personal computers when he was just 6 years old in 1979, when home computers were a rarity. However, Page and Brin said, "Alphabet and Google no longer need two CEOs and a President".

Wendy Forte asks about the Canada onesies worn by Tyler Lockett and David Moore on Monday, and Kathie Klatt from Vancouver, B.C. writes to say she is "very impressed with the wearing of the Canadian onesies in support of Luke Willson". They also will need the Packers to lose to either the Redskins, Lions or Bears if they want to win the NFC North. "We played right through it".

Cook did tell reporters after the game that he injured his chest (or re-injured his chest, as he showed up on the injury report this week), and that he'll "definitely be ready to go Sunday". The odds of that happening seem to be a long shot unless Zimmer can find some magic fix.

If there ever was a game that encapsulated the experience of being a Vikings fan, it was Monday Night's game in Seattle.
