THE VIKINGS ARE COMING
It was an impressive win.
For too long we have heard the rumblings of Kirk Cousin's demise, but no longer. He was a spectacular 27/34 for 337 and 4 TD's in a statement game within the division. The Detroit Lions in Detroit? I'll take it.
Dalvin Cook put 142 on the ground and the 40-yard strike to Stephan Diggs in the 4th quarter was exactly what happens when you are successful in the running game. With the Bears sputtering and the Lions not being ready for prime time, it looks like a 2 horse race in the division with Green Bay and Minnesota. It will be pretty interesting to see if it comes down to the Christmas eve game in Minnesota.
Here's what Fox Sports has to say
It wasn’t too long ago when it looked like the Minnesota Vikings’ offense was in shambles.
It had just been held to six points and 40 rushing yards in an ugly loss to rival Chicago. Was the clock ticking on Kirk Cousins’ status as commander of the offense? And was Kevin Stefanski over his head with the promotion to offensive coordinator?
Fast forward three weeks, and Stefanski’s unit looks unstoppable.
