First of all, I have to give credit to Colts QB Andrew Luck who looks like a seasoned veteran running the two minute (or in his case the :31 second) offense. But what on earth is the Vikings defense thinking? At the end of the first half, the Colts led 10-6 and had moved the ball from their 36 to the Vikings 30 with :14 left. With the Colts out of timeouts, either they are going to throw to the end zone or throw to the sidelines. Just keep them inbounds and the clock will run out. What happens? The Vikings allow a 30 yard touchdown pass. 17-6 Colts.
At the end of the game, the Vikings have just scored a TD with :31 left to tie the game at 20. Two 20 yard pass completions both followed by a Colts timeout, a 7 yard pass play with a 5 yard penalty on the Vikings, and a spike leads to the Colts kicking the game winning 53 yard FG with :08 left. And no, I don’t fault the Vikings offense for leaving :31 on the clock when they tied the score. That’s two weeks in a row the Vikings have been written up.
