    Honestly there wasn't anything dazzling about this game... Minnesota dominated both the offensive and defensive lines. They garnished 8 sacks, and honestly this was still a 14 point game without the kaka del rio strip call that should have been blown dead.
    we were also a dropped TD from losing that game.
    Donald Lee's drop would have tied the game and also wouldn't have had the Vikings starting a drive from the 1yd line.
    That drive from the 1yd line went 41 yds before stalling.
    I imagine the Vikes would have been able to score on the drive if it started from the 20 from a GB kickoff.
    Thus, Vikes win anyway.

    As for the OL dominating....
    if they did where was the running game?
    GB's front 7 were focused on stopping the run.
    Getting to Favre was secondary.
    They run blitzed ensuring gap dicipline incase it was a run, not much overloading or stunts.
    They were relying on Favre to do something stupid or our receivers to drop the ball like last week.
    If either happened Vikes would have lost the game.
    Plus the Vikings would have gone into the Prevent Defense and not run all three downs and punt... we would have probably scored again. but ifs are just ifs
    My point is, Lee's drop wasn't a game breaker.
    Now MM's decision to go for it against the best goalline D in the NFL, rather than kicking a FG, is just stupid.

    Lees drop was a gamebreaker.
    At that point, it wouldhave made the game 21-28, a one score game.
    Lets say both teams score the same amount of points they would have, but rather than going for a two point conversion on a TD, the pack kickes the XP, that would put the pack up 31-30, as if they were only 7 points down, they'd have no reason to go for two.
