The Vikings defense clearly missed Griffin yesterday. It didn't matter because Josh Norman had nothing against either Diggs or Thielen. Lost in all the talk of elite defense are the strengths of this offense. The OL is playing incredibly just a year after urine ran perpetually down TJ Clemmings' leg. The running game? Efficient and deadly. Gone are the negative plays of years past. Many Vikings drives are successful because of the second down plays, usually with 7 or less yards to go. Make hay on first down, have flexibility on second and third down.

People can say what they want about Dallas not having Zeke yesterday. The real absence was Tyron Smith. Ain't no questioning that man's worth.

Dak Prescott is overrated. He's not bad by any means, but you take away too much of the luxury car he drives as an offense and you get...yesterday. Yes, he was highly pressured and sacked 6 times by one guy. That doesn't account for the fact that he threw more interceptible passes yesterday than I've ever seen.

The Rams are the Sunday Ticket watch of this season. So electric. They'll have a hard time hitting 25 next week in Minnesota, but if any team is going to light up the Vikings in Minneapolis, it'd be the Rams or Eagles.

Defense held them to 17 points at half and had a comfortable 35-17 lead before the Rams scored off 13. Basically 7 of those were gifted by a bad Case Keenum interception that put them at the 1. Similar things happened against the Saints from what I remember, where we kind of let up off the gas pedal and they put up some stats on us. Not concerned about it. Hunter stepped up when we needed him to. If it becomes a pattern, then I'll be concerned, but it's really one bad performance that was likely exacerbated by 1) a comfortable lead and 2) a horrible interception.

The Skins have just been destroyed by injuries this year. You are what your record is and injuries happen to every team, that's why it's so important to have depth but man...
