Minnesota Vikings 19, Chicago Bears 13: Cousins, defense carry Vikings to third straight win

Mike Dinovo-USA TODAY Sports That was different They came to see Dalvin Cook. They left talking about Kirk Cousins. (And the Vikings’ defense.)

Film review: How the Vikings defense adjusted to upset Packers in rematch

Mike Zimmer didn't bank on the wind. Nearly two months after the Vikings defense was torched by Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, with Zimmer often calling for single-high safety coverages that helped expose young corners, they brought a different approach to Lambeau Field during Sunday's 28-22 win. Even with up to 40 mile-per-hour wind gusts challenging throws, the Vikings seemingly deployed more conservative coverages with safeties Harrison Smith and Anthony Harris spending more time away from the line of scrimmage. Rodgers held onto the ball longer. The Packers offense sputtered after two...
