Which Minnesota Vikings made the Week 6 loss a bit more tolerable?

Once again, the Minnesota Vikings looked hopeless on an NFL field as they took a quality beating from the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6. The Vikings looked out of sync from the very jump as Kirk Cousins tossed an interception on the first play of the game.

Minnesota was down early and never really got back into the game, taking a firm 40-23 beating at home.

On the plus side, star rookie Justin Jefferson continues to be a bright spot in a dim season. The absence of Dalvin Cook hurt the run game quite a bit but with an early deficit, it’s hard to gauge just how much the Vikings would have run anyway.

Now sitting at 1-5 on the year, all looks lost for Minnesota as they hit their bye week. With playoff hopes diminishing in a hurry, the season looks to be over.

While things look rough, who were the unsung heroes from Week 6?
