Vikings are 0-2 after Colts overwhelm Kirk Cousins
Winless Vikings were even worse than in their awful season opener
September 21, 2020
INDIANAPOLIS - At the end of a loss he didn't expect, which gave him a record he hasn't experienced in seven years as Vikings coach, Mike Zimmer tried to sum up a team he didn't recognize.
"This team has kind of been built on controlling the time of possession, playing great in the red zone and on third downs, and we haven't been doing that very well," Zimmer said. "We're going to have to get back to work and try to figure out what's wrong because the identity of this team has not been what it has been for the last six years."
Before Sunday, the Vikings hadn't started a season 0-2 since 2013, when they allowed more points than any team in the league in Leslie Frazier's final year as head coach. They are there again after a 28-11 loss to the Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday that showed them perhaps even more off their moorings than in their season-opening loss to Green Bay.
