Week 3 of the 2013 NFL season provided plenty of surprises, but it’s safe to say nobody expected the Cleveland Browns to win on the road against the Minnesota Vikings–mainly because the team traded away their best player in Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts earlier in the week. To top things off, the Browns would be starting Brian Hoyer–who previously had one career start prior to Sunday’s game–at quarterback while Brandon Weeden recovered from a thumb injury.
When taking all of this into consideration, it’s easy to see why the Browns arguably pulled off the biggest shock of Week 3 and the Vikings were so caught off guard by the upset–even Adrian Peterson’s daughter didn’t see it coming.
So my daughter is laying here under me and just out the blue she says… I can’t believe you lost to the Browns Daddy! Smh

As if Peterson already wasn’t frustrated enough over the way things have gone so far this season in Minnesota, even his own daughter is taking shots at him over Sunday’s loss. It’s one thing to allow a team like the Browns to score 31 points on the road after scoring just 16 points over their first two games, but give Cleveland credit for their win as the real problem here is clearly the Vikings are just a terrible football team.
Peterson played a big role in helping this team get to the playoffs last year and after an 0-3 start–his team is going to need him more than ever if they’re going to have any shot at playing in January. Otherwise, the shots may be continued to be fired from Peterson’s daughter if her dad’s team continues to lose more embarrassing games.
