The Minnesota Vikings left Lambeau field with a win this past weekend with a 24-10 showing. Which players on the team deserve more praise for their efforts?

The Minnesota Vikings are now back at .500 on the season after their recent win against the Green Bay Packers. This win left a sour taste in everyone's mouth due to the massive loss of QB Kirk Cousins, but the show must go on for the Vikings as they look to make the playoffs.

A lot of the talk after the Week 8 game was rightfully about the health and future of Cousins and the future of the team moving forward, but we must not forget that the Vikings did leave Sunday's contest with a victory.

The 24-10 victory was done without superstar wide receiver Justin Jefferson, meaning that other offensive weapons would need to step up and the defense was in a position to help keep too much pressure off the offense.

Some players on the team have gotten their well-deserved flowers for how they performed, but which players had a big part in the win and have gone under the radar? Let's talk about Minnesota's unsung heroes.
