Which former Minnesota Vikings players performed the best in Week 5?

During his tenure as the head coach of the Minnesota Vikings, Mike Zimmer has been able to lead the franchise to a good amount of success.

However, Zimmer and the Vikings have been experiencing an unfamiliar amount of struggle this season. Minnesota has only come up with one win in their first five games and a return to the playoffs is looking less and less likely as each week passes by.

One of the reasons for the Vikings’ lack of success this year likely has to do with the amount of roster turnover the team experienced during the most recent offseason. A number of Minnesota’s longtime contributors departed earlier this year and they have been continuing their NFL careers in a different uniform.

A few of these former Vikings players have had themselves a standout performance or two this season. Of these former Minnesota players, which guys delivered the most impressive performances of Week 5?
