Through the first two games of the season, the Vikings have found ways to put their fans through a variety of different emotions.

In Week 2, Minnesota took the early lead against Arizona when quarterback Kirk Cousins threw a touchdown pass to wide receiver K.J. Osborn.

The Vikings almost forced a turnover when cornerback Bashaud Breeland knocked the ball out of wide receiver Rondale Moore’s hands before he could reach the end zone, but the ball technically went out of bounds. Then, the Cardinals made it a one-possession game when Kyler Murray ran in for the score.

Murray used his arm on Arizona’s next touchdown, finding Moore on a 77-yard touchdown pass that helped the Cardinals take the lead with the extra point.

The Vikings got one more drive on offense in the first half, and put kicker Greg Joseph in range to hit a 52-yard field goal. Cardinals kicker Matt Prater helped Arizona retake the lead when he hit a 62-yarder as time expired in the half. At the time this article was published, the Cardinals led the Vikings 24-23.
