Frazier: Vikings coaches need better communication


EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (KTTC/AP) -- Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier says the coaching staff will have to re-evaluate how they talk to each other about plays that may need to be challenged during a game.

On third-and-goal in the fourth quarter in Sunday's loss to Atlanta, the Vikings gave the ball to Percy Harvin. He was stopped near the line of scrimmage by the Falcons defense, which also stuffed Toby Gerhart on fourth-and-goal from the 1.

Replays appeared to show Harvin getting the ball across the goal line on his second effort. Frazier said Monday that coaches who are charged with monitoring replays never brought the possibility of a challenge to Frazier's attention.

He says they have to review how they handle those situations "based on that play alone."
