Last week, the Skins and Niners played in the mud and combined for nearly twice as many rushes (65) as passes (33). Thursday night, the Vikings got the ball with 1:59 remaining in the third quarter and proceeded to run it 19 times against just six passes, churning out drives that lasted 6:23 and 8:16. And that was that. The Skins lost, 19-9. They’re now 1-7.

If you have to watch the Skins, you poor bastards, at least there’s comfort in knowing it’ll all be over soon.
