He also accumulated an impressive 3 and a half sacks on the day, moving into the top spot in the National Football League with 11.5, leading Los Angeles Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald by one and a half heading into the bye week for Minnesota. "We know in our division, we're going to get that every week". And Dalvin Cook, returning after missing four games with a hamstring injury, carried 10 times for 89 yards, including a 70-yard sprint down the left sideline in the second quarter that set up Thielen's touchdown. The Vikings (5-3-1) limited the Lions (3-5) to a season-low 214 total yards, and their pressure on Stafford was so intense he literally had pieces of rubber pellets from the artificial turf flushed out of his left eye in the second quarter.

After Cousins made his biggest mistake of the game, a high throw to Thielen near midfield that Darius Slay left his man to intercept, the Lions made it as far as the 12-yard line. Stafford, who was sacked a total of 13 times over the first seven games, completed 25 of 36 passes for 199 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions. "I've got to do a better job, to be honest with you". Cousins and Cook also botched a handoff that resulted in a turnover.

Two plays later, Stafford ran right on the short side of the field and tried a risky flip to Kerryon Johnson. "I thought it was a pass all the way, but I guess he didn't want to get hit or something". Sheldon Richardson and Tom Johnson split a sack of Stafford on third-and-goal early in the second quarter to force the first of three field goals by Prater. "He looks like a superhero", Griffen said of the fourth-year defensive end.

The Vikings effectively mixed in blitzes to keep the Lions off balance, but nine of the 10 sacks were registered by their defensive linemen.

Not only that, but the Vikings set a franchise record ten sacks against quarterback Matthew Stafford, showing off an incredible pass rush as well as some fantastic overage in the secondary. They also did it in 1993. So credit to them, but it's all on us.
