Cook won’t be stopped

If this seems like a reason why the Vikings should win just about every week, it’s because it is. But until an opposing team figures out how to slow down Dalvin Cook, it’s going to continue being a main reason why Minnesota should come away with a win.

Cook has been on a path of destruction ever since Week 1 and just about everyone has failed to slow him down.

He’s rushed for at least 97 yards in a game seven times this season there have only been two matchups this year in which he hasn’t made a trip to the end zone. In addition to his excellence on the ground, Cook has also caught 40 passes for 424 yards and two touchdowns this year.

His 40 catches so far are the most by a Vikings running back in the team’s first 10 games since Moe Williams grabbed 41 in 2003.

On Sunday, Cook will be going up against a Broncos defense that has done a decent job at stopping the run this season. However, Denver hasn’t really faced any running backs that are as dynamic as both a rusher and a receiver as Cook.

Will Cook rush for 225 yards against the Broncos on Sunday like Leonard Fournette did in Week 4? Probably not, but the Minnesota running back should be able to add another impressive performance to his 2019 season when he faces the Denver defense.
