Tough losses in the NFL happen, even to the best teams. The difference is whether a team can learn from its mistakes and get better, or whether they'll let the loss snowball and affect them going forward.

Based on Adam Thielen's NSFW quote, it sounds like the Minnesota Vikings are the former.

Minnesota Vikings News

Based on Thielen's quote, it sounds like the Vikings weren't too happy about getting embarrassed by the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football earlier this week. Minnesota fell behind early and never recovered, getting shut out during the second half en route to a 24-7 loss.

While losses like that are understandably painful, they can also be learning experiences. It's still early in the season, so the Vikings can't let one loss get them down too much. There's still 15 games to go, and in a few months nobody's going to care about what happened during Week 2.

It sounds like Minnesota is serious about improving and getting better each week. Philadelphia exposed some of their flaws and simply outplayed them, but the Vikings know they can play better. They just blew out Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in Week 1, after all, so they know what they're capable of.

Vikings vs Lions Week 3 Odds

Minnesota isn't messing around this year under new head coach Kevin O'Connell, especially with a Week 3 divisional matchup against the resurgent Detroit Lions up next. The Vikings are favored by 5.5 points at home on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds, but how they bounce back from their first defeat of the season will say a lot about what kind of team they have.
