Vikings RB exits with shoulder injury vs. Seahawks

His fumble at the Vikings' 35 stopped another potential touchdown drive that would've given the Seahawks 41-24 lead midway through the fourth quarter. The Vikings scored a defensive touchdown in the first half courtesy of one of the more freakish plays you'll ever see, as Russell Wilson attempted to bat a ...

Minnesota is not done in the division race, but they are now a full game behind Green Bay. "So we said, OK, and we'll just run it and do what we do really well".

The second half featured more of the same between these closely-matched NFC powerhouses.

We've seen plenty of bounces go Russell Wilson's way over the years, but tonight, at least one cost the quarterback and his team six points. Seattle turned a 17-10 halftime deficit to a 34-17 lead. The Seahawks have the ability to attack teams through their air with MVP candidate Russell Wilson and his unsafe weapons, but the ground attack has been the key with Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny.

While the defense isn't as dominant as Pete Carroll would like, it is good enough to win against anyone. Seattle rushed for 218 yards, the most allowed by Minnesota this season.

Seattle piled up positive yards on a consistent basis as Minnesota's front seven parted like the Red Sea in ancient times. QB Russell Wilson had an efficient game through the air as he connected on 21 of his 31 pass attempts for 240 yards, 2 TDs, and 1 interception.

Pressed further, the official added: "He also, as I suspect you know, likes Boris Johnson - prime minister Johnson, personally". However, Johnson said he would walk out of trade negotiations if including the health service was a pre-condition.

Wilson's pass was tipped by Vikings defensive tackle Armon Watts at the line of scrimmage in the first quarter.

Minnesota's rally started with Seattle's own blown coverage as Cousins hit Laquon Treadwell for a 58-yard TD.

Dalvin Cook finished the game with 29 yards and a touchdown on nine carries. But that was as close as Minnesota would get. "We like having that", Wilson said. Both players have nine touchdowns. He hauled in 6-of-7 targets for 75 yards, which was key on a night that saw star Tyler Lockett come up empty.

What's interesting is how the team termed it a shoulder injury, but Cook said it was a chest injury.

This could be a massive loss for the Vikings, who needed to win to keep pace with the Green Bay Packers in the NFC North. And following the Niners' 20-17 road loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, head coach Kyle Shanahan's squad now finds itself the No. 5 seed in the NFC playoff picture after sitting atop the conference all season up until this point.
