Offensive MVP – Honorable Mentions

Creating an effective offense can be hard to accomplish against a stingy Bears defense. However, the Vikings were able to accumulate 385 yards against them and score two touchdowns on Monday night.

Yards were tough to come across on the ground, but Minnesota’s passing offense picked up some of the slack. The team converted eight of their 15 tries on 3rd-down and they won the time of possession battle by controlling the ball for 35:50 of the 60-minute game.

Which three Vikings players played well on offense against Chicago but weren’t quite the MVP in Week 10?

Justin Jefferson – WR

The rookie receiver was ballin’ on Monday night as he was the most targeted player in the passing game. Justin Jefferson hauled in eight of the 10 passes thrown his way, racking up 135 yards. Although he didn’t get a touchdown on the day, he did have an electrifying 54-yard catch and run that energized the team.

Garrett Bradbury – C

There have been times the offensive line has been questionable this year, but Garrett Bradbury has done an excellent job in run blocking and he has been holding his own pretty well in pass protection. The interior of the offensive line may be a work in progress, but Bradbury looks as though he could be a long-term answer at center.

Adam Thielen – WR

Adam Thielen did have some tough moments on Monday. He had some footballs hit his hands that weren’t reeled in and one of them even bounced directly into the hands of Khalil Mack. But the good far outweighed the bad for Thielen, as he caught four of the seven targets for 43 yards, and both of Minnesota’s receiving touchdowns. Plus, his one-armed reception in the end zone is a highlight that made multiple jaws drop.
