Vikings RB exits with shoulder injury vs. Seahawks

Share

In the end, the Vikings seem to have avoided the nightmare scenario where they didn't just lose in Seattle, but suffered more injuries to an already beat-up group. According to NFL Next Gen Stats, Wilson went 5-of-5 for 105 yards and a 60-yard touchdown pass when Rhodes was the nearest defender on Monday. He remained there for a time and then had to leave the game.

Yes, he had that DPI in the fourth quarter, but his juggling interception was unbelievable. QB Russell Wilson had an efficient game through the air as he connected on 21 of his 31 pass attempts for 240 yards, 2 TDs, and 1 interception.

The Vikings came roaring back on Monday night against the Seahawks after trailing by 17 points, and after cutting the margin to four points the Vikings had the ball with plenty of time on the clock.

Minnesota's three fumbles in Seattle - two by Dalvin Cook and one by C.J. "This isn't the end of the world, we still have a lot of good football left to play".

Of course like any team, hitting on their draft picks will be key, and there will also be plenty of free agents to evaluate.

The 49ers have the league's 22nd-ranked rushing defense, as they allow 116.7 yards per game on the ground, so running backs Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray can expect some major workloads in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Minnesota is not done in the division race, but they are now a full game behind Green Bay.

Rossow also said that first responders and medical professionals worked to rescue the victims in "extreme weather conditions". At least nine people were killed, including children, and three others are believed to have survived.


"He's really doing well", Carroll said. Seattle ran for 218 yards.

As mentioned before, the Seahawks almost blew a 34-17 lead in the quarter.

On offense, Cousins had an off-night (by his 2019 standards), but considering yet another odd offensive game plan from the powers that be on the Vikings sidelines, it's hard to really blame him. Minnesota wide receiver Stefon Diggs was also hurt on the play, but he quickly recovered and was on Minnesota's next drive. But I thought all the guys played great.

In effect, the Vikings tried to compensate for their biggest weakness - the play of their cornerbacks against the pass by putting safety help over the top - and ended up hurting themselves elsewhere.

In 2018, Thielen (1,373 yards) and Diggs (1,021 yards) both had over 1,000 yards receiving and a combined 18 touchdowns. The Seahawks' defense turned what should have been an easy win into yet another nail-biter.

Tyler Lockett, who was among the sick Seahawks, was held without a catch on three targets.
