    He often gets compared, unfavorably, to quarterbacks like Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson. Those comparisons are becoming more and more favorable.

      With Cook back, Vikings ready to run as weather turns cold

      Dalvin Cook's rush through the left side of the line for 70 yards last week was the longest gain of his professional career, an early game boost for the Minnesota Vikings in an important victory over Detroit before their bye. Cook's return from a hamstring injury that kept him out of five games was one of the most important developments of the season. ''When you go to the zoo and you want to see a white tiger and they say, 'He's not coming out today, you're disappointed and you're like, 'That's why I bought the ticket, to see the white tiger,'' quarterback Kirk Cousins said after the Vikings b…

Even in the absence of Andrew Sendejo, star safety Harrison Smith has gotten outstanding help from just about everyone the Vikings have at the position, whether it’s Jayron Kearse, Anthony Harris, or George Iloka (even though Iloka’s snaps have decreased a lot over the past couple of weeks).Harris, in particular, has been outstanding, according to Sam Ekstrom of Zone Coverage.In…

      He missed the last game before the bye with a rib injury A rib injury forced Minnesota Vikings’ receiver Stefon Diggs to sit out of the team’s 24-9 victory over the Detroit Lions in Week 9. Diggs actually suffered the injury in the loss to the New Orleans Saints the week before, and managed to make it through that game, but the injury was too much for him after that. With the bye, Diggs has now had two weeks to rest up and get healthy, and it sounds like he’s made the most of it.#Vikings WR Stefon Diggs tells me — on the RapSheet and Friends podcast — he practiced Monday wit…

Just like everybody* predicted, the first meeting between the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears in the 2018 season is for first place in the NFC North. Chicago holds a half-game lead over Minnesota after nine games. At 6-3, Chicago has already guaranteed at least a tie for their best record in five years and is looking for their first playoff berth since 2010.

      Wait, how did that happen? Close to the halfway point of the season, I started doing a week to week update of the Vikings playoff chances. Along the way, they’ve had a couple of big wins, a tough loss, and the bye week.
