Vikings Outlook After Week 2: Still Thumbs Up!

The Defense had a bad quarter and Cousins performance was atrocious for the most part.  Losing the second game of the season in Green Bay 21-16 does not give me a reason to panic.  The penalty call on the Diggs touchdown was bogus and without it, I don't think Diggs takes his helmet off.    The Defensive performance in the final 3 quarters was steller.  Our running game is solid.  Sure it's tough losing a game that was there for the taking, but it isn't the end of the world.  Cousins play is what it is, which is wildly inconsistent and generally below average when facing good opponents.  On Sunday his play was just flat out poor and it cost us the win.  Hopefully, the coaching staff can find a way to get into Cousins's head and get him to perform better when the lights are brightest.  I don't see us losing versus the Raiders at home and the Bears game is definitely winnable if we can eliminate the turnovers.  My outlook for the team is still positive.
