The Minnesota Vikings did it again this week.
Blew a halftime lead and lost, this time in their home opener to the Tampa Bay Bucs, 24-20. The Vikings led 17-0 at halftime, and played a near-flawless first half. Then didn't show up for the second half. (I'm certainly glad to be seeing the last of those Tampa Bay teams.)
Green Bay and Detroit both won, and are 2-0. Chicago is 1-1, having lost in New Orleans.
I recently got NFL Red Zone on my TV, and it's pretty cool, as they go in and out of all games all day, and saw some of the Vikings-Bucs game, including Tampa Bay's winning TD with 31 seconds left.
The Vikings are 0-2 and picking up the rear. Why do I have this feeling they are likely to stay there?
Liverpool got rolled by Tottenham Hotspur, 4-0 earlier today in London.
At least Notre Dame's win over Michigan State kept this from being another lost weekend.
