Who are some Minnesota Vikings players that deserve more praise for their contributions to the win over the Chicago Bears in Week 5?

After defeating the Chicago Bears this past Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings are currently sitting at 4-1 on the season and are first in the NFC North standings.

With their win over the Bears, the Vikings are now on a three-game win streak, and even though the victories haven’t been pretty, a win is a win in the NFL.

In the recent past, it was Minnesota who typically gave up the game-winning drive in the closing minutes of a matchup. But this year’s Vikings have flipped the script, and they did so once again against Chicago in Week 5.

Minnesota star wide receiver Justin Jefferson continued his otherworldly season against the Bears as he put up 12 catches for 154 yards and a two-point conversion after the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter to help provide some cushion.

While Jefferson continues to get his rightful praise, some other key contributors flew under the radar for the Vikings in Week 5. Who are a few of the unsung heroes from Minnesota’s recent win over Chicago?
