Vikings vs Lions: GMG In The Raw! Getting it done again

Victory is sweet, especially after beating a division rival. Flip, Drew and Dave from Good Morning Gjallarhorn react to the Minnesota Vikings defeating Detroit Lions. Dalvin continues to Cook and the defense steps up. What did you think?

Good morning Horners! Aren’t victory Monday’s great? Your Minnesota Vikings ran all over the Detroit Lions on the way to a 34-20 win. Dalvin Cook was again the star with 252 all purpose yards, 206 of them on the ground. He had a 9.4 yard per play average. That is outstanding and murmurs of MVP are starting to rise. Adrian Peterson watched and was impressed if you saw his expressions. He wasn’t the only one either. Where you?

For the second week in a row, the Vikes seemed to have found a winning formula with improved O-line play, running the rock and limiting Kirk Cousins to 20 passing attempts. It was an efficient game plan by the offense. Will it carryover to next Monday night against the better defense of the Chicago Bears?

The defense was still a cobbled together unit with even Chris Jones playing at corner. I was asking who’s that too. LOL. The D may not have been pretty and gave up a lot of yards between the 20’s, but they did stiffen in the redbone for the most part, and they generated 3 interceptions on the day, one each by Eric Wilson, Eric Kendricks and Harrison Smith. They combined to hold the Lions to just 20 points… The lowest so far this season. Will this unit keep improving?
