Disagree. It might not have been the only bad move, but it was definitely one of several that caused out demise.Zeus wrote:

Or was he right to try and slow Atlanta’s momentum and allow his team a chance to regroup by going to overtime? The gamble in the latter was not getting the ball — but the Vikings did get it in overtime. Twice.
After the Cunningham fumble, the offense went into a conservative shell, and the defense was playing with injuries and ineptitude. Those explain the loss. Going into overtime gave Atlanta momentum.
Play to win, or go home. Neither Dennis Green nor Brad Childress played for the TD late in the game; they both lost to inferior teams.

In the NFCC against the Falcons, Dennis Green and Brian Billick lost their moxie when Cunningham fumbled before the half. They played a conservative game, likely to keep the battered defense off the field, and it did not work. Brad Childress was known for going into an offensive shell when up by a touchdown at half, so it was nothing new for him. Brett Favre, with his audibles, and Darrell Bevell, working with the quarterback instead of as adversaries, had done more for the Vikings offense than Childress was able to do. In the end, Childress was determined to play for a field goal. It almost worked, but the Vikings messed it up with an unforgivable penalty for a professional football team. Favre, who had pulled the Vikings out of many jams during the season with his arm, made a blunderous throw on the next play. Then again, the Vikings would have won that game had it not been for fumbles by key offensive personnel.
