Which former Minnesota Vikings players performed the best in Week 1?

After years of being able to roll with the same core group of players, the Minnesota Vikings were forced to make a bunch of changes to their roster this offseason and it resulted in a number of notable names being let go.

Against the Green Bay Packers in Week 1, the Vikings stepped onto the field without the services of guys like Stefon Diggs, Everson Griffen, Linval Joseph, Xavier Rhodes, Trae Waynes, and Mackensie Alexander.

Just as their old team did, a number of these former Minnesota players kicked off their 2020 season on Sunday in their new homes. Some continued to produce at a high level while others proved the Vikings right in their decision to let them out the door this year.

In addition to the guys who were on their roster in 2019, there are also other former Minnesota players who made their 2020 debuts this past weekend, including the franchise’s all-time career rushing leader.

So of all the former members of the Vikings roster who played in Week 1, who are the guys that delivered the best performances?
