The Minnesota Vikings found a way to beat the Buffalo Bills on Sunday afternoon by a score of 33-30. The win didn’t go without its issues, however, as Greg Joseph missed his fifth extra point on the season.
Joseph now has a total of 10 missed kicks on the season and with half of them coming on extra points, the Vikings could have an issue on their hands as the season moves forward.
Joseph has struggled this season after a hot start and has fans wanting a change at the position. Here are six kickers that the Vikings should look at signing.
