Dan Bailey's kicking is no concern for Vikings

The Vikings have the fifth-most accurate placekicker in the history of the NFL.

But …

Nothing sets Vikings Nation abuzz with Purple trepidation quite like a clutch kick curling wide left in a critical late-season loss to Seattle.

Can we get an amen?

Not really, says Mike Zimmer, Vikings coach and longtime embattled employer of kickers.

"I have all the confidence in the world in Dan [Bailey]," Zimmer said when asked for his level of concern over Bailey hooking a point-after attempt wide left and leaving the Vikings trailing by four points with 7 minutes, 14 seconds left in Monday night's 37-30 loss to the Seahawks at CenturyLink Field.
