The Minnesota Vikings finally got over the hump with their first win of the season.

Following three straight losses to kick off the season, the Minnesota Vikings secured their first win of 2020 in Week 4 against the Houston Texans. The Vikings offense exploded during their victory as Dalvin Cook, Adam Thielen, and Justin Jefferson each racked up over 100 yards.

Minnesota’s defense came away with some key stops when it mattered, including on the final drive of the game as Houston was inside the red zone.

Once again, the stars for the Vikings stood out as we expected them to on both sides of the ball including Yannick Ngakoue, who continued his hot stretch with another sack, his third of the season.

With the core guys leading the way, Minnesota looked like the team we expected them to be from the jump. The offense can put up points in a hurry while the defense makes some plays here and there to keep them in the game.

Aside from the stars, who made a sizeable impact during the win for the Vikings? Let’s take a look at the unsung heroes of the week.
