Overall Team DVOA

-4.2% 17th

The Vikings have been more put-together than their record suggests. The Vikings continue to hover around the top-10 in DVOA, thanks in large part to a Mike Zimmer defense that is really hitting its stride compared to the early goings of the year. Zimmer continues to be a third-down savant with his pressure schemes, while the smart, veteran roster handles business on the first two downs. Some injuries and questionable offensive line play (what’s new?) have held the offense back from reaching truly elite status, but Kirk Cousins is playing as well as anyone can ask and the offense has been rolling. Luckily, the Vikings’ future schedule is a bit easier than average for the rest of the year, so a late playoff bid is still well on the table.  -- Derrik Klassen
