Troy Taormina-US PRESSWIRE
The Minnesota Vikings opened the regular season up at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars, a team that finished 2011 with a 5-11 record.
Like the Vikings, the Jaguars have a second-year QB who struggled as a rookie and numerous other questions up and down there roster.
This matchup is one of only a few games that the Vikings will be favored in all year and was a must-win for this team.
While the Vikings did get the win, the offense seemed very "vanilla" to open the game, and its quarterback was timid.
While this does not directly fall on Frazier but rather Musgrave, any losses are almost always directed to the head coach.
Once Ponder settled in and Musgrave opened up the playbook to finally include Harvin, the offense started to move, but they still are missing something through the air.
On defense, the linebackers are only OK, and the secondary still has many issues.
Missed tackles and poor coverage plagued the Vikings defense on Sunday.
Thankfully for the Vikings, the Jaguars struggled to move the ball, but the Vikings will face much stronger competition as the season progresses.
The Vikings will face off against the Indianapolis Colts who struggled in Andrew Luck's debut game against the NFC North's Chicago Bears.
The Vikings must consider the matchup with the Colts another "must-win" game to keep pace in the division.
