Vikings vs. Bengals: Takeaways from Minnesota's 42-14 Loss to Cincinnati
Trevor Ruszkowksi-USA TODAY Spor

As well as the Minnesota Vikings played against the Philadelphia Eagles last week, they looked equally bad against the Cincinnati Bengals this week. 

Quarterback Andy Dalton had a big day as he led the Bengals to a 42-14 win over the Vikings. This one was over by halftime, as the Bengals built a 28-7 lead. The Bengals had plenty to play for as the win secures them a playoff spot.  

After a great game last week against the Eagles, quarterback Matt Cassel struggled against the Bengals' top-10 ranked defense. He accounted for all four of the Vikings turnovers in this game.   

The lone bright spot for the Vikings was rookie Cordarrelle Patterson, as he continued to make teams regret kicking him the ball.

The loss drops the Vikings to 4-10-1, with one more game remaining.

Here are some takeaways from this tough loss.
