The good stuff from Week 11
- Not being afraid to use Harrison Smith. Whether he’s near the line of scrimmage or back in coverage, Smith can be a playmaker and make opposing offenses question what he is going to be doing based on his positioning on the field.
- Making the most of your opportunities. Anthony Harris is usually forgotten sometimes with Andrew Sendejo, George Iloka, and Jayron Kearse at safety. However, he continues to make a great case for more time when he shows good coverage skills and even snagging an interception or two on the night.
- Stefon Diggs came to play! The Vikings offense struggled mightily, but Diggs put together a great performance. He caught 13 of the 18 passes thrown his way for 126 yards and a touchdown on the night, leading the team in receptions and receiving yards.
- Making the stops. When ball-carriers came face-to-face with Eric Kendricks, odds are they got stopped. The linebacker had a team-high 12 tackles on the day, with all 12 of them being solo efforts. He has quite a nose for the football and made some great stops during the game.
- There can be only one. During the game, only two hits were registered on quarterback Mitchell Trubisky…and both came from linebacker Eric Wilson, who was also the only person to sack the Chicago quarterback as one of his seven total tackles. Not bad for the guy filling in for Anthony Barr!
