Which Minnesota Vikings disappointed the most in Week 10?
The Minnesota Vikings did something rare in Week 10 as they went on the road and won in primetime against the Chicago Bears under the bright lights of “Monday Night Football”.
The Bears were able to shut down Dalvin Cook for the most part, but Kirk Cousins played a clean game and hit his stud receivers Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson to move the chains and put points on the board during the matchup.
The Vikings also got a strong performance from their defense as Chicago quarterback Nick Foles was under constant duress in this game and he was eventually knocked out of the contest. Minnesota’s pass coverage was also tight as Harrison Smith played a masterful game, breaking up passes, coming up with an interception, and almost picking off another.
The Vikings are peaking at the right moment and they look like a completely different squad than what we saw just a few weeks ago. They have gotten themselves back in the playoff picture and the talk of tanking has disappeared.
This was a big win for Minnesota, but not every player had their “A” game against the Bears. Let’s go over three Vikings players whose performances under the big stage of “Monday Night Football” were riddled with disappointment.
