Vikings Vs. Colts: Jared Allen Embarrassed By Minnesota Defense

The Minnesota Vikings rallied to tie the Indianapolis Colts with just 31 seconds to play in the fourth quarter, but despite having little time, Andrew Luck was able to guide Indianapolis into range for the game-winning field goal. The Colts prevailed, 23-20.

After the game, Minnesota defensive end Jared said he was not proud of the effort from the team's defense. "That was embarrassing," Allen said. "Yeah, I don't know. I've got nothing to say."

The Vikings rallied from a 14-point deficit in the final quarter only to have their hopes dashed by that last effort from the Colts' offense. Overall, though, Minnesota's defense wasn't bad. The Vikings allowed just 278 total yards to the Colts, who averaged just 4.4 yards per play.

Minnesota hosts the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3.
