Not to give away too much of this game or anything (ha ha), but the Vikings lost Super Bowl 11 for the same reasons that they lost their three previous Super Bowls. They were overmatched upfront on both sides of the ball and couldn't run or stop the run in any of these games. When you can't do that, you put a hell of a lot of pressure on your passing game and pass defense because your opponents know when you are going to throw the ball and will be able to throw the ball successfully against you whenever they want, because you are so concerned about their running game.
