Hard to say who's 0-3 start is worse between the Minnesota Vikings and the Kansas City Chiefs. While the Vikings have blown big leads in all three of their games, the Chiefs have lost by an average of more than 27 points. Safe to say, no one really envies either fan base right now.
Of the two, the Vikings seem more capable of possibly turning this into a respectable season, but they'll need to stop coughing up leads. Last week they were up 20-0 before falling 26-23 to the Detroit Lions in overtime. In Week 2, they were up 17-0 before losing 24-20 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Just for good measure, they were also up 17-7 at halftime before losing to the San Diego Chargers in Week 1.
After giving up 89 points in their first two weeks, last week was at least a step in the right direction for the Chiefs. They never led against the Chargers, but at least the 20-17 loss looked respectable and Matt Cassel easily had his best game of the year, tossing a pair of touchdowns and completing 15 of 22 passes.
