Tark 2.0 Leads The Vikes To Victory In Atlanta


The rook, Jaren Hall, only lasted two series before he got a concussion trying to run the ball into the endzone on third down. Hall did look good in that second series. So the QB that we traded for last week was thrust into the game. Zero practice reps with the Offense, because they were getting a rookie QB ready to play. What Dobbs, KOC, and the Vikings Team pulled off in a hostile stadium with a solid defense was astonishing. The Vikes got one TD with Dobbs and I was impressed. Then he got a second TD to tie the game at 21 on an amazing scrabble. Wow! Then we got an interception and the Vikes took the lead on a field goal. The teams then traded off punts before finally, the Atlanta OC came to his senses and started pounding the ball right down the field and into the endzone. With two minutes left in a raucous domed stadium, Tark 2.0 went to work and could not be denied. Vikings 31 Falcons 28, scoreboard at 0:00.

Coach Kevin O'Connell now owns three of the most improbable victories in Vikings history. I still can hardly believe this happened. I don't think it's an understatement to say this was one of the all-time great total team wins in NFL history. Simply incredible!

I don't know what the future holds. I am sure the Saints Defence is chomping at the bit to get their shot at Tark 2.0 in Minneapolis this week. If nothing else, we will always have Atlanta, Mr. Dobbs.
