Danielle Hunter is special

If there was any doubt in anyone’s mind that Danielle Hunter wouldn’t return to be the pass-rushing demon that he has been for the Minnesota Vikings since being drafted, those concerns should be put on the shelf.

Hunter has a slow start in Week 1, not registering a sack until late in the game but ending the game with six total tackles (three solo). Against the Cardinals, the defensive end didn’t need as much time to get going.

Danielle Hunter had three sacks on Kyler Murray on Sunday. Three sacks in one game is typically an excellent feat for any player in the NFL, but doing it to an elusive and dangerous quarterback like Murray is something else entirely.

He seems to have put the damage from his mysterious neck injury behind him and is now completely focused on getting around offensive lineman and getting pressure. If he can continues this type of play, it will make things easier on the secondary.
