There were some great performances by the Minnesota Vikings in Week 1 of the 2019 NFL season. Here are the MVPs from the game against the Atlanta Falcons.
The Atlanta Falcons are no joke. They have one of the most threatening offenses in the NFL and a defense that has many young players and potential. Still, the Minnesota Vikings bulldozed the team led by Matt Ryan in a lopsided affair.
Minnesota just looked ready for the game. Their offense was efficient and strong while their defense not only kept the Falcons run game in check but shut down their passing game until the game was already pretty much in the bag.
This was a great performance by the team as a whole, but there were still some players who stood out in a big way on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball during Week 1 of the 2019 NFL season.
Let’s take a look at some of those individuals who stood out among the best players on the field for the Minnesota Vikings and deserve to either be named an MVP or were in the running for that honor based on their performance in the 28-12 rout on Sept. 8, 2019.
