Chris Cook Optimistic About Game Against Packers

The Vikings secondary has struggled this year.  Despite that, at least one player on Minnesota’s defense is feeling pretty good about the game on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.

Cornerback Chris Cook sees the opportunity to take advantage of a passing game that is missing its key component.  Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a fractured collarbone a couple weeks ago, forcing backup Scott Tolzien into the starting role.  Since Rodgers’ injury, Green Bay has lost three straight games, and Chris Cook hopes that the Vikings can make it four.

“They’re definitely vulnerable right now,” Cook said to the Pioneer Press. “Rodgers is a key guy for them and he pretty much makes their offense go. This is definitely a must-win for us.”

Chris Cook will get the opportunity to take advantage of this situation on Sunday.  Whether or not he does is yet to be seen, but he is definitely right about this being a “must-win” game for the Vikings.
