Vikings vs. Colts: 9 Things We Learned from Minnesota's 23-20 Loss

Despite a fantastic fourth quarter from the Vikings offense, they found themselves in a familiar situation: With 30 seconds left on the clock, a young quarterback improbably led their team to a touchdown to seemingly change the fortune of the game.

In response, the unproven prodigy from the other squad inexplicably found enough time to drive his team to within field-goal range and change the narrative, allowing his kicker to complete from over 50 yards.

Unfortunately, the Vikings lost in the familiar retelling off this tale.

Fans still have a number of takeaways from the game—not all is lost, but there's still a lot of work to do.
