Good morning Horners! A day after the Minnesota Vikings went to Lambeau Field and defeated division rival Green Bay Packers, the win is still so sweet. In a day where weather was an absolute factor, with wind gusts anywhere from 40 to 50 miles an hour, running the ball seem to be key. Dalvin Cook stood out and took the game over. He had 226 all-purpose yards and 4 touchdowns giving the Vikings their first win over a Matt LaFleur coached team.
Mike Zimmer had his hands full, especially in the second half when injuries started to decimate the Viking secondary. Coming into the game they were already short handed, but due to a hit by a teammate on Cameron Dantzler, and Kris Boyd suffering what looked like a knee injury, Zimmer had to manufacture coverage in a way he hadn’t before. At the end of the game, Anthony Harris was playing nickel because there was nobody left. Even Adam Thielen volunteered to play corner if needed. But it was in the second half, and with all those substitutions that Zimmer schemed a way to stop the Packers offense. After dominating the third quarter offensively, as fans we all knew to just wait for the collapse. Then the Packers scored, made a two point conversion, and got the ball back with 57 seconds left. We’d all seen this story before and knew the ending, all except for rookie defensive end DJ Wonnom. What a sweet way to end the game.
