The interesting and funny part of all this is if they had gone for the field goal and missed then still lost the game everyone of the second guessers would be saying you go for it every time.
Mattison missed the hole or it's game over. I know there are different opinions and personally either way I was fine with. Going for it was my preference in the moment so I would say it is still my preference now. Had they kicked the field goal I would also have been fine with it.
Fact is, there are so many different factors that go into wins and losses in a football game. IMO the Vikings should never have been in that situation in the first place... once again.
