Vikings: Footballs on the ground

NEW ORLEANS -- Let’s just get this out of the way now.

It hasn’t been “Pants on the Ground” for Minnesota.

It’s been “Footballs on the Ground.”

The Vikings are fumbling away their chances to play in the Super Bowl. They’ve fumbled six times in this game, losing three amid a total of four turnovers. Two have come in the red zone.

Frankly, it’s amazing they’re only trailing 28-21 with 8 minutes, 10 seconds remaining in this game.

More in a bit.
