Vikings set all time low


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings set a franchise record in their season opener for what they didn’t do: keep the ball. The Vikings established the mark with an all-time low time of possession of 18 minutes and 44 seconds and lost to the Green Bay Packers 43-34. In only four other contests since the NFL began tracking possession time in 1977 had the Vikings kept the ball for less than 20 minutes. Their previous record of 19:06 also came at home against the Packers in 2013. An offense built around dual threat running back Dalvin Cook was unable to unleash its strengths.
