Minnesota Vikings: 5 People Who Still Aren't Getting It Done

Though the Minnesota Vikings finally snapped their losing streak and won their first game of the season, there are still some definite areas of concern and members of the team that aren't getting their job done.

The Vikings defense was outstanding. With three interceptions, a forced fumble and four sacks, Minnesota's defense really stepped up. With an injured Antoine Winfield, the young guys in the secondary like Asher Allen, Husain Abdullah and Jamarca Sanford really played well and made their presence felt.

The Vikings got it going on offense with a refreshing ground game that accounted for all four of their touchdowns. It seems that offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave finally figured out that he has the best running back in the NFL—and Adrian Peterson proved that statement by getting into the end zone three times in the first quarter.

Though the Vikings won against Arizona, it's still important to realize that they haven't changed much. They still were very unproductive in the second half, totaling only six points off of two Ryan Longwell field goals. The only difference seemed to be that the defense really stepped up—and that could be attributed to a very weak opponent in the Cardinals.

That being said, there are certainly still some guys within the team and organization that aren't getting their job done, and thus still inhibiting this team.

Here are five guys that still aren't getting it done for the Vikings.
