Which players from the Minnesota Vikings stood out the most from Week 8 against the Washington Redskins on Thursday Night Football to be the MVPs?
The game between the Minnesota Vikings and Washington Redskins in Week 8 felt really strange. The matchup on Thursday Night Football didn’t fit many of the projections fans or the media had about the game, but thankfully the outcome was a good one.
Minnesota got out of the primetime affair with a 19-9 victory that moved them to 6-2 on the season and kept them in the race for the NFC North crown. While the Green Bay Packers still hold that top spot, the Vikings aren’t quite ready to give up.
Even with the game being a low-scoring effort and there only being 650 total yards gained and one touchdown scored in the entire game, there were still some great efforts on both offense and defense for the purple and gold.
Let’s take a look at some of the best performances from the game on both sides of the ball and name an MVP on offense and defense. Plus, some honorable mentions deserve some love for their efforts in the game.
