Vikings Chiefs Preview

The Minnesota Vikings have held double-digit leads going into the second half of every game this year. The Kansas City Chiefs haven't held a lead at any point.

However, the teams have more in common than you would think: both sit at 0-3 and at the bottom of their respective division.

The Vikings are looking to pick up a win and avoid their first 0-4 start since 2002. This 0-4 team is the best first half team in the game so far this year, outscoring their opponents 54-7 in the first half while losing 6-67 in the second half.

The Chiefs who started 3-0 last year are staring an 0-4 start in the face for the first time in three years. They have given up an NFL-leading 109 points and have scored a league-low 27.

Both these teams look pathetic on paper and desperate on the field. I was at both the Vikings-Buccaneers and the Vikings-Lions games and trust me, the crowd turned ugly at the sight of our Vikings throwing away double-digit leads.

Minnesota has lost all three of its visits to Kansas City since winning its first one in 1974... at least they'll be on the road. Vikings fans shouldn't have to put up with anymore opposition cheering in the ugly Dome.
