Seahawks take over first place in NFC West, beat Vikings

Adjust Comment Print

Cook was tripped up and fumbled on Minnesota's second drive of the third quarter.

Penny, who earned more playing time after rushing for a career-high 129 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 12, followed up on that effort with 74 yards and a touchdown against the Vikings.

This is your reminder that the NFC, outside of the NFC East maybe, is really, really good. Left tackle Riley Reiff did not play in the second half due a concussion.

"Just couldn't be more excited to have that kind of win and put us at 10 wins, that's a nice spot for this time", Carroll said.

The key was the running of Penny and Chris Carson.

The defensive end was totally clueless when Minnesota wide receiver Stefon Diggs ran a jet sweep for 27 yards early in first quarter.

Guardiola: Man City are not low on confidence
Three players is not rebuilding a team . "That is for the players who have finished their contracts and the players who have them. Guardiola has previously admitted that the club could not afford to sign former Foxes defender Maguire last summer.

Ansah's performance has started to come around as of late, with five quarterback hits in his last two games, and his absence would be felt by this up-and-coming Seattle defense. The defense - which scored its first touchdown since November 4, 2018, on Anthony Harris' interception return - also allowed a season-worst 16 rushing first downs (more than double the previous season high of seven in Green Bay) and four touchdowns to the Seahawks offense. The Vikings set a season worst in points, rushing yards (218) and rushing touchdowns allowed (two). The Seahawks offense outscored the Vikings offense 37-23. He had a forgettable first-half moment trying to bat down a deflected pass only to watch Anthony Harris intercept the ball and return it for a touchdown.

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.

It took barely 2 minutes for Minnesota to pull within 34-30 as Cousins connected with Kyle Rudolph for a 3-yard touchdown and another brilliant one-handed catch by the Vikings' tight end. "We like having that", Wilson said.

Cook did tell reporters after the game that he injured his chest (or re-injured his chest, as he showed up on the injury report this week), and that he'll "definitely be ready to go Sunday". They're in danger of ceding the No. 6 seed to the Rams.

In Week 7 against the Detroit Lions, Marvin Jones Jr.'s annihilation of Minnesota's secondary (four touchdown catches) was outdone by Kirk Cousins' 337 passing yards with four touchdowns and zero interceptions and a 141.1 rating in the Vikings' 42-30 victory.
