Honorable mention – Offensive MVP
Unlike last week, this week was a good one for the Minnesota Vikings offense, with several players scoring touchdowns and contributing while the squad put 41 total points on the board on Sunday.
Latavius Murray, running back
While not targeted in the passing game, Latavius Murray got 15 carries and accumulated 68 yards. With an average of 4.5 yards per carry and scoring one touchdown, Murray’s day was highlighted by an 18 yard run off tackle to give Minnesota a 21-0 lead after the extra point.
Aldrick Robinson, wide receiver
Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen might be reliable players, but Aldrick Robinson is starting to get known as the big-play guy for the Vikings. He snagged a 40-yard touchdown to extend the Minnesota lead in the fourth quarter and put the game out of reach.
Kirk Cousins, quarterback
He had a big mistake on a swing pass which was intercepted for a touchdown, otherwise, this was a solid game for Kirk Cousins. He completed 14 of his 21 passes for 215 yards and two touchdowns while only taking two sacks on the day.
