The Vikings knocked off the Miami Dolphins in Week 6, 24-16, courtesy of a Minnesota protection that confirmed up with a ferocious go hurry, arguably for the 1st time in 2022. The Vikings offense, on the other hand, was unbelievably dry for substantially of the 1st Fifty percent but found means to make just adequate massive performs to get the game.
Wide receiver Justin Jefferson recorded 6 catches, 107 getting yards, and no touchdowns in a match that felt pedestrian for the Vikings playmaker. But which is just the norm now for Jefferson — 107 getting yards is “no massive offer.” Jefferson also procured a great 2nd-Half reception of 47 yards that aided convert the tide in Week 6.
The Vikings are early 3.5-position dwelling favorites in opposition to the Arizona Cardinals in 7 days 8, who received in 7 days 7 more than the New Orleans Saints, 42-34. Minnesota to start with had a bye 7 days, though, plenty of time to winner a 5-1 begin while prepping for the underachieving Cardinals.
The Green Bay Packers also dropped a 3rd video game in a row, sinking Aaron Rodgers’ team to 3-4, with a bizarre 2.5-match deficit in the NFC North to Minnesota. The Vikings are the No. 2 seed in the NFC behind the Philadelphia Eagles and would host a household playoff activity if the playoffs began these days.
Ed Donatell’s defense proceeds to embrace the greatest bend-really don’t-crack philosophy, curiously rating 27th in yards allowed but 12th in factors authorized. This may well just be “the way it is” for the 2022 Vikings defense — spotty through most game titles but soaring with victory in its grasp.
A 5-6 report the rest of the way would plop the Vikings in the postseason. Of course, profitable the division is chosen, but subpar football the rest of the way, as a worst-situation scenario, would web a playoff berth. That’s the perk of a 5-1 start out.
The Cardinals will have DeAndre Hopkins again on the subject when Minnesota hosts Arizona in 7 days 8. He was previously suspended before Week 7.
