Which Minnesota Vikings players stood out the most in Week 6 against the Atlanta Falcons?

To say Week 6 was a disappointment for Minnesota Vikings fans would be an understatement. The team took on a winless Atlanta Falcons team and got absolutely destroyed at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday.

Many experts and fans are still likely attempting to figure out what went wrong during this game, but Atlanta grabbed control early and never looked back, dominating the purple and gold from kickoff to the final whistle.

That doesn’t mean there weren’t some Vikings players who had very good games against Atlanta despite the 40-23 final score and the team dropping to an utterly disappointing and frustrating 1-5 record heading into their bye week.

Let’s take a look at some of the best performances from Minnesota’s players during their Week 6 game against the Falcons and name an MVP from the offensive and defensive side of the ball.
