Vikings Lose Clunker of a Game to the Browns 31-27

MINNEAPOLIS – The Vikings couldn’t take advantage of an offense that lost running back Trent Richardson and started their third string quarterback today, losing their home opener 31-27 to the Cleveland Browns.

The Vikings are off to an 0-3 start this season. Since 1990, only three teams have reached the playoffs after starting 0-3.

There has never been a team to start 0-3 and make the Superbowl.


Christian Ponder managed to run for two touchdowns in the loss today. But he also fumbled and threw an interception.

Ponder finished 25 of 42 today with 228 yards.

Adrian Peterson was fairly quiet after scoring the first touchdown of the game. Peterson finished with 25 carries and just 88 yards rushing.

Brian Hoyer made the start for the Browns and pulled off a victory despite three interceptions. Hoyer went 30 for 54 today for 321 yards and three touchdowns against a depleted Vikings secondary.

Jordan Cameron caught three touchdown passes, including one with 51 seconds to go to give the Browns a 31-27 lead.

The Vikings will travel to London to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers next week.
