Who are some Minnesota Vikings players that did a job worthy of more praise during the team’s victory over the Washington Commanders this past Sunday?

The Minnesota Vikings are currently riding a six-game win streak after their most recent victory against the Washington Commanders in Week 9.

Though the game was far from pretty, the Vikings still rallied together and pulled out the victory against a tough Commanders defense on the road. It was yet another one-score win for Minnesota, as they are now 6-0 on the season in games that are decided by one score, a far cry from how the team’s record looked just a year ago in those situations.

The big names for the Vikings shined yet again in their win, as the likes of Justin Jefferson, Harrison Smith, Danielle Hunter, and Za’Darius Smith all had their fingerprints on the victory. Outside of an amazing one-handed interception, Kirk Cousins had a solid game himself, constantly delivering under extreme pressure.

With the big names showing up, which Minnesota players flew under the radar to provide crucial help in the team’s Week 9 victory over the Commanders?
