Cook should be able to do whatever he wants

It hasn’t really mattered who the Vikings have played this season, Dalvin Cook has usually found a way to put up a bunch of very impressive numbers each week.

The NFL’s current rushing leader will have a great opportunity to add a good chunk of yardage to his total on Sunday against a Chiefs defense that has struggled against opposing running backs this year.

So far this season, Kansas City is allowing the third-most rushing yards per game and the third most yards per carry to opposing offenses. Four different running backs have finished with at least 100 rushing yards in their matchup against the Chiefs this year.

Kansas City’s defense has struggled to contain opposing running backs in pass coverage as well this season. Just last week, the Chiefs let Packers running back Aaron Jones haul in seven passes for 159 yards and two touchdowns.

As good as Cook has already been playing in 2019, he has a very good chance to have the best game of his young career on Sunday in Kansas City.
