Viking No. 2

D.J Wonnum - OLB

D.J. Wonnum must have some vendetta against the Bears because he seems to turn it on whenever he's playing the Vikings' division rival. This past weekend was no different, as Wonnum once again stood out against Chicago.

Of Wonnum's 17 career sacks, a staggering 7.5 of them have come against the Bears. Now, obviously, he plays Chicago more often due to them being division mates, but he only has four career sacks against the two other NFC North squads, truly highlighting that he has something against Chicago.

Wonnum had a line of four total tackles, a sack, and a pass defended, leading to a top-five defensive grade from PFF among all Vikings defenders on Sunday.

With Marcus Davenport leaving the game early due to an injury, Wonnum showing out against the Bears was much needed for Minnesota, and he did just that.
