I can recall four games when the Vikings beat the Packers at Lambeau Field: 1998 (though I didn't watch this game: I was was at play rehearsal for O Pioneers!), 2003, the 2004 playoff game, and 2005. It's always special when the Vikings win at Lambeau, and we can always hope they will (because sometimes they do), but we shouldn't ever expect it to happen. It is rare. Even a good Viking team is likely to struggle at Lambeau: if the Vikings can get a season split with the Packers, they should be OK.
The Vikes played a good opponent on the road to within a touchdown and lost. So now we move on. This Sunday is the home opener against an Indianapolis team that just suffered a bad home loss to the Bears. The Colts are still scary, but it appears that now is the right time to face the Peyton Manning passing attack, and if Matt Forte can run well against the Colts' defense, Adrian Peterson should be dynamite.
Patience. The Vikings fully revealed their weaknesses on Monday Night, but this can still be a special season.
