Vikings swallow loss; Miami saves its coach
The Dolphins felt great about their win while all three phases of the Vikings struggled at critical times.
VIKINGS JOURNAL: Clock Management Bites The Vikings Once Again
There’s only one game left in the 2014 season. And through the first 15 games of Mike Zimmer’s head coaching career we’ve learned some things.
Defense turns soft and Zimmer turns red
If you were playing Lifelong Vikings Fan Bingo on Sunday, you were able to cross off “punt blocked out of end zone to lose game” and “onside kick from 20-yard line,’’ winning you an autographed copy of Gary Anderson’s just-in-time-for-the-holidays coffee-table book titled “I Only Missed Once.’’
Craig's Five Extra Points
The tone of the first half was set by Asiata on the Vikings’ first possession. He touched the ball on eight of 10 snaps, gaining 32 of 54 yards, including the 1-yard touchdown.
Vikings fall back into old bad habits in another last-minute loss
In a frustrating road loss against Miami, they again showed they have difficulty finishing out.
special teams experience high, then low
The Vikings special teams taketh but then gaveth away in a four-minute span that saw them go from the key reason the Vikings were going to win to the final blunder that gave the Dolphins their game-winning safety in Sunday’s 37-35 win at Sun Life Stadium.
notes: Greenway mourns loss of father but tries to play through
Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway played with a heavy heart on Sunday, two days after the death of his father. Alan Greenway, who lived in Mount Vernon, S.D., died Friday night after battling leukemia for more than two years. He was 56.
safety off blocked punt gives Dolphins victory over Vikings
Mike Zimmer adorned the walls of his team meeting room at Winter Park with an armful of purple-and-white signs that boldly state the mantras he wants his new team to eventually embody.
Vikings blow another 14-0 lead, lose to Miami
The loss to Miami on Sunday takes away a lot of the glamour of the Bears game next Sunday.
Poor defensive play, penalties irritate Zimmer
Mike Zimmer was clearly irked when speaking with reporters immediately after today’s 37-35 loss to the Dolphins, and understandably so. His Vikings blew another double-digit lead, allowed nearly 500 yards of total offense and were flagged a bunch of times in a frustrating loss.
Teddy Bridgewater shines in Miami homecoming
Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was the biggest bright spot in the 37-35 loss to the Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium on Sunday.
Vikings' defense flops in loss
In an attempt to make sure Teddy Bridgewater experiences all there is to experience in an NFL season, the Vikings on Sunday attempted an onside kick from their own 20 yard line.
When the Vikings were 6-7, their goal was a winning season. When they were 6-8, it was a .500 campaign.
Safety Harrison Smith had one of the best interceptions Sunday a Vikings player has had this season. But he wasn't impressed.
Vikings: Loss hits Teddy Bridgewater right at home
Teddy Bridgewater soon will return to his native Miami for the offseason. He won't have bragging rights.
Viking coach Mike Zimmer hot after another fourth-quarter fade
Mike Zimmer is a big fan of signs with sayings. So much so that he covered the walls of the Winter Park Fieldhouse with a bunch of them after being hired last January as Vikings coach.
Tom Powers: Vikings' Christmas miracle short-circuits
After the Ghost of Christmas Present had tripped up Miami's Jarvis Landry at the 5-yard-line, resulting in an unforced fumble and seemingly a sure victory for the Vikings, we appeared to be witnessing a real holiday miracle.
Vikings penalties lead to Dolphins points in tight game
Penalties of any kind can be costly in a close game like the one the Minnesota Vikings lost Sunday, but head coach Mike Zimmer saw too many of the undisciplined kind in Miami.
Oh snap! Vikings lose to Dolphins 37-35 on last-minute safety
Long snappers generally only are recognized when they mess up. Cullen Loeffler messed up.
Vikings' Chad Greenway playing, 2 days after father's death
Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway started Sunday against Miami at Sun Life Stadium after his father died Friday.
Teddy Bridgewater expects to be teased about the Vikings’ loss in Bridgewater’s hometown of Miami, but the Vikings lost two leads en route to a crazy finishing blow on a blocked punt.
Notebook: Bridgewater continues strong month
Teddy Bridgewater continued his improved play of late, capping off a strong four-game stretch. But most of the rest of the stats showed why the Vikings lost.
Vikings record-seekers vs. Dolphins
Teddy Bridgewater continued to move up the Vikings’ rookie QB charts, as did Greg Jennings and Harrison Smith and others.
Vikings defense collapses in 37-35 loss

Greenway playing despite death of his father
Chad Greenway’s father died Friday night after battling leukemia for more than two years, but the linebacker is active for the Vikings.
In a game he played a few miles from where he grew up, in front of scores of family and friends who approached his mother for tickets, Teddy Bridgewater was at his most resourceful on Sunday in Miami.
