Philadelphia Eagles at Minnesota Vikings: First quarter recap and second quarter discussion

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports It’s a two-score lead after one quarter We’re through one quarter of action at U.S. Bank Stadium, and the Minnesota Vikings have scored on both of their possessions to give themselves a 10-0 lead over the Philadelphia Eagles. The Vikings got the football first in this one, and put together an outstanding opening drive. Kirk Cousins converted an outstanding third-and-long with a 20-yard pass to a diving Adam Thielen, and the team had themselves facing a 1st-and-goal from the Philadelphia 5-yard line. After Dalvin Cook was tackled for a loss on first...

2019 NFL Week 6: Philadelphia Eagles at Minnesota Vikings

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports Can the purple remain perfect at home? After their first road victory of 2019, the Minnesota Vikings return to U.S. Bank Stadium to play host to the Philadelphia Eagles. Following a week filled with drama, the Vikings put together what might have been their best all-around performance of the season last Sunday against the New York Giants. The Vikings had a 300-yard passer (Kirk Cousins, 306), a 100-yard receiver (Adam Thielen, 130 and two scores), and a 100-yard rusher (Dalvin Cook, 132) for the first time this season en route to a 28-10 victory. This week,...

Vikings Bounce Back, Beat Giants: Game Notes

Vikings Bounce Back, Beat Giants: Game Notes

Photo by Elsa/ The Vikings delivered a much needed win against a depleted and not so good Giants team on the road in East Rutherford, beating them handily, 28-10. Kirk Cousins bounced back, going 22/27 for 306 yards, 2 TDs and a 138.6 passer rating. Dalvin Cook also bounced back, with 132 yards rushing (6.3/attempt) and 86 yards receiving (14.3/catch) for 218 yards total from scrimmage. Dan Bailey was perfect kicking, making two extra points and going 4/4 from the field, while Adam Thielen had 130 yards receiving, and Anthony Barr had a safety and interception. But for all the great...

Report: Bears to sit Akiem Hicks against Vikings

It sounds like Dalvin Cook won’t have to worry about seeing this today | Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports A big blow to the Chicago defense We’re still a few hours away from kickoff at Soldier Field between the Chicago Bears and your Minnesota Vikings in Week 4 action, but news is surfacing that the home team is going to be without a pretty big part of their defense. Bears DT Akiem Hicks, a key part of Chicago’s run defense, is not expected to play today against Dalvin Cook and the Vikings, sources say. Hicks injured his knee in Monday Night’s game and didn’t practice all...

Minnesota Vikings Game Ball: Week 3

A few candidates this week Hey, gang! Sorry I’m a bit later than usual on some of the normal post-game stuff. . .real-life commitments and all that. But I’ll start getting back into the swing of things here, starting with this week’s Game Ball! While the Week 2 pick was a relatively easy one, there are actually a few options to look at this time around. So, let’s stop stalling and have at it, shall we? Dalvin Cook, RB - I’m starting to think that I’m just going to be able to copy-and-paste Cook’s name into these posts for the rest of the season. Once again, Cook went over the...

Dalvin Cook joins some select company

Photo by Stephen Maturen/ Based on his first three games of the year Over the first three weeks of the 2019 NFL season, you could make a pretty convincing argument that Minnesota Vikings’ running back Dalvin Cook has been the best in the league at his position. With the Sunday Night Football contest near completion and Monday Night Football yet to be played, Cook is currently the NFL’s leading rusher, 67 yards ahead of Carolina’s Christian McCaffrey, and is second in the NFL in rushing touchdowns with four. But, with his performance on Sunday, where he carried the ball 16 times for...

Stock Market Report: Raiders

Stock Market Report: Raiders

Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports The Vikings needed a rebound game after last week’s loss. They got one. After two diametrically opposed games, the Minnesota Vikings were a team in search an identity and some consistency as they met the Oakland Raiders at US Bank Stadium today. And in two convincing wins, the key to the Vikings success is clear—A fast start, no mistakes, a solid defense, and Dalvin Cook, with a smattering of some downfield passes just to keep everyone honest. Today, like they did against Atlanta...and like they didn’t against Green Bay...Minnesota started fast,...

Raiders vs Vikings: Four winners, four losers

When you play a game in which you are beaten by 20 points and you can still say it wasn’t really even that close, you know how bad it has become. The Raiders lost 34-14 to the Vikings and it was not pretty for the visiting squad. Winners 1. Dalvin Cook Cook ran through the Raiders defense like a hot knife through butter. Four of the Vikings’ ten longest plays from scrimmage were Cook. He had 110 yards rushing and a touchdown with another 33 yards receiving... all in the first three quarters. Two of the other longest runs were Vikings backups who were gouging the Raiders late because...
