I see where the Vikes claimed the back yday,Abdullah , who the Lions waived earlier in the week. I think he'll be able to help, 1 of the rookie backs was let go to make room, I think. :scratch:

       :tut: Don’t overthink it: As the defense goes, so go the Vikings :scratch:

MINNEAPOLIS — How have the Vikings rallied to pull themselves back into relevance after a 1-2-1 start? With defense, mostly, but also a slightly improved running game. 

The story isn’t told entirely by defensive statistics; three missed field goals, for instance, cost the Vikings victory in a 29-29 tie at Green Bay in Week 2, and the Vikings are 1-3-1 when they lose the turnover battle. They also have played several games without end Everson Griffen, linebacker Anthony Barr, tackle Linval Joseph and safety Andrew Sendejo.


Some of those players have returned, and coach Mike Zimmer said he continues to tweak a base defense coming under increasingly tense scrutiny from opponents and teams hoping to achieve some of the Vikings’ recent success.

But whatever the reasons, the defense undoubtedly has improved since Week 4, when the Vikings gave up a season-high 556 yards in a 38-31 loss to the Rams on Sept. 27 in Los Angeles. They played probably their best game of the season in last Sunday’s 24-9 victory over Detroit at U.S. Bank Stadium.

As Minnesota held the Lions without a touchdown, and sacked quarterback Matt Stafford a franchise-record 10 times, the Vikings’ defense appeared to have finally become the one most expected after returning every key member of a unit that ranked No. 1 in total defense during the 2017 regular season.

“I wasn’t on that team, you know?” said defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson, who has made his presence felt since signing a one-year free-agent deal in the offseason. “We gladly would like to be the No. 1 defense in the league and all that stuff, but still got some season left and winning games is more important than what y’all’s (statistics) say.”

The Vikings head into their next game, Nov. 18 at Chicago, a half-game behind the :bow: fabulous Bears :blues brothers: in the NFC North, having won four of their past five games.

“It’s meshing together,” Joseph said after the Lions game.

The running game has improved, as well. After averaging a meager 77 yards in the first four games — during which time Minnesota ranked dead last in rushing among 32 NFL teams — they have run for an average of 104 yards in their past five games.

But the Vikings’ offense has been more than adequate, averaging 24.6 points a game with the NFL’s sixth-best passing game (374.3 yards a game) behind new quarterback Kirk Cousins. The difference the past five games has been most apparent on defense, and the biggest reason might be schematic adjustments

  NFL player facing the most pressure in the second half.

 :reporter; Brace Hemmelgarn/USA TODAY Sports

Dalvin Cook, Running Back, Minnesota Vikings:

Similar to the Texans, the Vikings now possess the passing attack to compete for a championship, and the defense is improving. Even with a loss to the Saints sprinkled in, Minnesota has allowed just 18.8 points per contest in the last five games. :happy1:

But .... the Vikings need more from their ground game. They are fifth to last with 91.7 rushing yards per game this season, :confused: and they fare just a little better, coming in at No. 19, in rushing yards per attempt (4.2). :doah:

Of course, the first step with Cook is staying healthy, as he has missed four games this season. :mad1: Minnesota needs him to do that and produce to win the NFC North. :banghead:

What's cookin wit Cook? :moon:
