The Minnesota Vikings suffered another heartbreaking loss in Seattle in Week 5.

Week 5 is in the books and the Minnesota Vikings are still as unknown as before. They traveled to the Pacific Northwest to take on arguably the best team in the NFL in the Seattle Seahawks. From the opening kickoff, the Vikings looked like they were going to pull out a big win.

Minnesota’s offense was off to a hot start and they controlled the clock, which has not been the case often this season. The second half got off to a rough start for the Vikings as Seattle scored 21 points in the blink of an eye. But Minnesota bounced back and they had every chance to win the ballgame.

After the Vikings offense was stopped on 4th-and-1 inside the 10-yard line late in the fourth quarter, the Seahawks drove the length of the field and scored the winning touchdown in front of an empty stadium.

While the loss was a kick to the gut for Minnesota fans, plenty of players stepped up in a major way to put them in a position to succeed during their matchup in Seattle. Which Vikings players were the unsung heroes from the Week 5 loss to Russell Wilson and the Seahawks?
