vikings.com looks back on the week that was at Winter Park via the "Winter Park Rewind."

November 18

Late on Sunday night Wobschall posted his "What Went Wrong" column that looked back on Sunday's 41-20 loss to the Seahawks in Seattle. Then on Monday he addressed fan comments and questions stemming from the loss via his mailbag piece.

Over the lunch-hour Head Coach Leslie Frazier held his day-after Monday press conference to look back on the loss:

We posted all three segments from this week's "Beyond The Gridiron," which was 100 percent focused on Jared Allen, both on and off the field.

We also posted this week's Pick 6 Video Mailbag where Wobschall talked about, among other things, giving more time to younger players given the team's record at this point in the season.

We posted a pair of photo galleries: one featuring exclusive and behind-the-scenes images from last weekend in Seattle, and another looking back at the Vikings-Packers rivalry over the years.

We posted another story from the AP, this one talking about the Vikings keeping Ponder as the starter despite his struggles in Seattle. Wobschall looks at Jared Allen, who has had double-digit sacks in seven consecutive seasons but with just five so far in 2013 is in danger of having that streak come to an end. Wobschall also looks at comments made by Defensive Coordinator Alan Williams and Special Teams Coordinator Mike Priefer in regards to Sunday's game in Green Bay.
