Minnesota Vikings Team Stats 2019 Minnesota Vikings Stats

10-6, 2nd NFC North

@ SF

9:35 pm GMT, 1/11

It was a disappointing year from what was anticipated with Kirk Cousins at the helm. The offense still has a ton of name value, but it was hard to get going given the bottom five offensive line play. With Stefan Diggs and Adam Thielen now in year two with Cousins, we should see better results. The offensive line should be improved enough to give Cousins time. The defensive side has been a strength for the last few years, and despite a few names moving on, Minnesota should be top ten in defensive production yet again. An all around team gives them a chance to get moving in 2019 as they were so close to a Super Bowl in 2017.

Super Bowl Aspirations in Minnesota

Will Dalvin Cook Pump Life Into The Running Game?

Minnesota desperately needs a full year from Dalvin Cook. He struggled with hamstring injuries early on the year and then got going in the second half. He rushed for 4.6 yards per carry. There will also be no Latavius Murray as he is off to New Orleans. Minnesota has a good passing attack, and things could really be a balanced offense that thrives for success. However the 30th ranked rushing yards per game was not ideal. The offensive line had a lot of struggles with staying healthy and that certainly didn't help the case of the offense. With better health and an emphasis on the line in the draft, the Vikings should be dead set for a better year.

Can Minnesota's Defense Remain Top 10?

The pride of the Vikings has been on the defensive side, as they remain one of the more underrated defenses in the league. It was another strong year, but there were other teams that jumped them. They had 40 sacks, which was still solid, but it wasn't quite the menacing pass rush as prior years. With Harrison Smith and Xavier Rhodes in the secondary, you know you are going to be doing pretty good against the pass. With this core heading into the new year, the Vikings defense should be back on track.

Can Kirk Cousins Deliver In Year Two?

Kirk Cousins was supposed to be the one who bumped up the Vikings into being an elite team, but he struggled to do so. In fact, it was a step backwards. The offensive line play made it tough on the passing game to have any time to throw. Kirk Cousins still tossed over 4,000 yards and 30 touchdowns, so you can see how high the expectations were. He also completed 70% of his passes. It is unlikely that he gets higher numbers, but this is more about being a balanced efficient offense and that rests at the hands of the line. Minnesota has a tough schedule on paper facing good defenses, but this offense has all the potential in the world to be inside the top ten.
