Welcome to the Friday edition of the Pick Six newsletter!
Let me start things off here by saying that if we learned one thing from Thursday night’s game, it’s that you should never turn off a Vikings game until it’s actually over and although I think we actually learned that earlier this year, it’s definitely a rule that we all need to now live by. At one point in last night’s game, the Vikings led 29-0 and if any other team was playing, I would have gone to bed, but if there’s any team in the NFL capable of blowing a 29-0 lead, it’s definitely the Vikings and it almost happened.
The Vikings had to hold on for dear life in the fourth quarter, but they ended up coming away with a 36-28 win, which is good news for Mike Zimmer, because I’m 75% sure he would have been fired immediately after the game if the Vikings had lost.
We’ll be going over the game in more detail in today’s newsletter, plus we’ll be taking a look at the unexpected death of former Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas, who tragically died on Thursday.

Here are a few key aspects of the game that we touched on:
