The good stuff in Week 15
- Three easy opening drives. After seeing Minnesota struggle so much the past two weeks, seeing the Vikings move the ball effortlessly down the field for scores was both amazing and head scratching. Is this a sign of the offense for weeks to come?
- The sack attack! The Vikings had games this season where they didn’t get a single sack, so seeing the team bring down Ryan Tannehill nine times during this game was great. The pass rush was led by Anthony Barr and Danielle Hunter, who each got two on the day and five others getting one of their own.
- Running the football. Dalvin Cook ended the game with 19 carries for 136 yards and two touchdowns while Latavius Murry added 15 attempts for 68 yards and a score. As a whole, the Vikings ran the ball FORTY times for 220 yards and three touchdowns, which is very impressive considering the past struggles!
- Cornerback play. Holton Hill once again looked very impressive as did Xavier Rhodes and Trae Waynes. The three held Danny Amendola, Kenny Stills, and DeVante Parker to four catches for 47 yards while being targeted twelve times, forcing shorter passes.
- Lightning strikes again. It seems like all Aldrick Robinson does is score touchdowns. He caught two passes during this game, but one was a 40-yard bomb placed on a dime from Kirk Cousins. Those two guys made it look really easy, but then again Aldrick has been doing this since arriving in Minnesota.
