Offensive MVP – Stefon Diggs, wide receiver
It’s kind of weird for the offensive MVP from this game to only have three catches, but that is the case for Stefon Diggs. Considering there were only 16 completed passes in the game as a whole, three isn’t that bad.
Diggs’ catches went for a total of 57 yards, which led the team. One of those was a 21-yard touchdown grab while another was his longest completion of the day for 28 yards. This other catch was for eight yards.
There seems to be a real connection between Diggs and Kirk Cousins have regularly connected on mid to deep throws the last few weeks and that trend seems to be continuing into the final weeks of the regular season.
Stefon Diggs nearly had a completed pass as well, as the Vikings version of the “Philly Special” nearly moved the chains for Minnesota. Sadly, he overthrew Kirk Cousins by a bit, and a play that could have brought some energy to the offense fell to the ground.
Which other players from the Minnesota Vikings do you think deserve some recognition for their efforts in Week 16 against the Green Bay Packers? And who do you think should be the MVPs? Let us know in the comments section!
