Leslie Frazier says unforced errors killed Vikings vs. Packers

Head coach Leslie Frazier says the Vikings couldn't afford mental mistakes against a good team.

Playing the Green Bay Packers for the second time in as many weeks, the Minnesota Vikings needed to put together another complete game to get past their division rival. The task got a lot harder when the team announced just hours before the game starting quarterback Christian Ponder wouldn't be able to play meaning back-up Joe Webb, who hadn't taken a snap all season, would be under center.

The Vikings had a tough time from the get-go, with Webb finishing the game throwing for 180 yards but completed just 11 of his 30 pass attempts. The Vikings also coughed the ball up three times, one via a Webb interception and two by a fumble. Head coach Leslie Frazier wasn't pleased with his team's sloppy play following the game.

Unforced errors in a game like this. It's going to kill you against a good football team.

The Vikings also committed four penalties for 30 yards while the Packers racked up just 10 yards in penalties in addition to keeping a goose egg in the turnover column.
