Who were the most disappointing Minnesota Vikings from Week 9?

The Minnesota Vikings had their most convincing win of the season in Week 9 when they defeated the Detroit Lions by a final score of 34-20 this past Sunday inside U.S. Bank Stadium.

Dalvin Cook, once again, ran wild and he was the key to the Vikings win. While he played out of his mind, Minnesota’s offensive line also continued to control the line of scrimmage and Kirk Cousins played a conservative but efficient game, hitting the throws he needed to make to either keep the chains moving or put six points on the board.

Defensively, the Vikings also put together a solid performance. Minnesota came up with three interceptions and they were able to get plenty of pressure on the Lions quarterbacks, tallying two sacks on the day. The Vikings run defense was a little soft in the first half, but they improved as the game wore on.

While this was the most complete contest Minnesota had put together so far this season, there were a few players who could’ve still stepped up their game.

It is a difficult task to find negatives in such a positive performance, but these players need to be singled out whether it’s fair or not. So let’s take a look at the three most disappointing Vikings from the team’s big Week 9 victory.
