More good stuff
While it didn’t result in many sacks, the Minnesota Vikings did get consistent pressure on quarterback Chase Daniel. Both Everson Griffen and Danielle Hunter were constantly forcing him out of the pocket or making him make adjustments, proving the pass rush is no joke.
Griffen has been on fire this season and pairing him with the amazing athleticism of Hunter has been a recipe for success against most opponents in the past, but the Bears gameplanned well for the pressure.
Here are some other good things to come out of Week 4 for the Minnesota Vikings:
- After being quiet for most of the season, Stefon Diggs had a nice game that saw him catch all seven of the targets thrown his way for 108 yards, including a great 39-yard play to put the Vikings in a good position to score.
- For a rookie, Bisi Johnson looked like a veteran on the field. He caught all four of his targets for 35 yards. If he can continue to prove to be a reliable target, he could continue to get more looks on offense this season.
- Eric Kendricks didn’t flash in coverage, but he played the run well in the game. His 12 tackles (eight solo) showed his commitment to stopping the run and limiting yardage on short passes.
