Greg Joseph's missed kick sends the Vikings to a 34-33 loss in Arizona
The Vikings are 0-2 heading into their home opener next Sunday after Joseph missed a 37-yard field goal as time expired
September 20, 2021
GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Vikings started the 2020 season 1-5 because of two one-point losses. They have been outscored by four points in their first two games of 2021, but they are 0-2, heading home to face a quarterback they've never beaten in seven tries, because of a one-point loss they will rue for a long time.
Greg Joseph missed a 37-yard field goal wide right as time expired, giving the Cardinals a 34-33 win over the Vikings on Sunday at State Farm Stadium. The Vikings' home opener is next Sunday against Russell Wilson and the Seahawks.
On a day when Kirk Cousins provided a level of efficiency that countered Kyler Murray's electricity, the Vikings' biggest laments were on special teams: a botched Joseph extra point, a Dede Westbrook punt return from the Vikings' 6 that lost four yards, a squib kick at the end of the first half that put the Cardinals closer to a field goal.
