Danielle Hunter – WINNER
The Vikings’ defense is no slouch. NFL teams know this by now. The Vikings are known for their excessive pass rush and turnover-forcing abilities. They proved themselves again in Thursday night’s game against the Cowboys.
The leader of this pass rush is new-comer Danielle Hunter.
Hunter leads the team in sacks with 9.5. He had 2 sacks against the Cowboys and hit Dak Prescott 4 times. To add to that, he had a tackle for loss on Ezekiel Elliott late in the game.
The Vikings need to start winning, that much is obvious. With only 4 games remaining, they’re sitting at .500 on the season. That all begins with the pass rush. The pass rush, and Danielle Hunter, did their job and more in the game against the Dallas Cowboys.
