The Minnesota Vikings improved to 10-2 with a victory at home over the New York Jets. Who are the players who were a bit underwhelming in the win?

It finally looked like the Minnesota Vikings were going to blow out a team when they were up 20-3 against the New York Jets with under a minute to go in the first half. In typical Minnesota Vikings 2022 fashion, they allowed the Jets to creep back in and have a shot to win the game late, but the defense held up, and the Vikings escaped with the victory.

Kirk Cousins didn’t have his best day but showed great toughness as he bounced back from multiple huge hits. Dalvin Cook ran hard, Justin Jefferson made some key grabs, and the Vikings were able to put up 27 points on a very good Jets defense.

The Vikings’ defense was led by solid performances by veterans Eric Kendricks and Harrison Smith. A couple of young guys like Patrick Jones II and Cam Bynum made some key plays as well.

While those players helped the Vikings earn their tenth win, there were a few players whose play helped the Jets almost steal a victory. Here are a few Vikings whose performances last Sunday were pretty disappointing.
