Last week the Minnesota Vikings suffered an ironically painful loss with the NFL Odds at the Kansas City Chiefs. Ironic in that 50 years ago the Vikings were annihilated by the Chiefs 23-7 as 12-point chalks. Over the past five decades Minnesota has been good enough to entice gamblers into action but ultimately unable to finish. The same can be said for their quarterback Kirk Cousins. The Dallas Cowboys have also been a perpetual tease since Jimmy Johnson left town in a huff after winning his second consecutive Super Bowl in the 1993 season. Since that time owner Jerry Jones has not been a good general manager while playing one on TV.
