Vikings Take Care Of Business
It was great to see first hand the Vikings win in workmanlike fashion against the 1 win Cardinals.
This game was one not to be taken lightly, just ask Buffalo.
In a great display of all three phases of football, the Vikings soundly beat the Arizona Cardinals today 27-17. WR Adam Thielen had a big day with 11 receptions for 123 yards.
RB Latavius Murray had a big day on the ground ( 155 yards) and the defense stifled the Cardinals passing and running game.
WR Larry Fitzgerald was a non-issue, even on third and fourth down wherein the Cardinals did not get any conversions and gave up a pick to FS Anthony Harris.
I was in the stadium and can imagine what it sounded like on the field. The crowd was deafening all game.
It got to the point that after Kirk Cousins ran in a touchdown himself, he started doing the dead arm dance with the rest of the team. They were having fun for once.
Here are some highlights of the game:
