He’s not making the most money, but he’s carrying the biggest load for the Vikings.

Running back Dalvin Cook has been named NFC offensive player of the week, for his role in Sunday night’s win over the Cowboys.

Cook ran 26 times for 97 yards and a touchdown, and added seven receptions for 86 yards.

He was also part of a statement-of-intent drive that included 10 straight run plays.

He currently leads the league in rushing yards (991).

  1. It’s nice that the league is giving these no-names an award sometimes. It keeps them trying. Clearly someone that scores 3 TDs would have normally been chosen, especially since Gb doesn’t hold on every play like the Vikings, but this will be a nice, inclusive gesture.

  2. Well deserved. Really enjoy watching him play. And that screen pass has been working out very well. If anything, I’d like to see quick passes in the flat to him more often. Any time he is 1 on 1 in the flat, give him the rock.

  3. ummm didnt Aaron Jones have 93 yards AND score 3 tds??

    … and no fumbles. And is also tied with CMC for the most rushing and total touchdowns. Give me points over yards every day

  4. This kid is scary fast and good. He’s also more valuable to that team right now than Cousins. When he cashes in, who will they keep? Is Viking history going to repeat itself?

  5. Wait, we keep hearing about some Packer rube RB being MVP.

    Why is he a rube? And shouldn’t the NFL touchdown co-leader be in the conversation? The guy he’s tied with is.

  6. Well deserved, when it’s close between a couple players, the League will go with the team that shows World Class time after time, not the team propped up by Refs and allowing RBs gain yards by not calling all the offensive line holds…

    Calm down these weekly “awards” don’t rally mean that much and I am sure a Packer player might win 1 again sometime so you can feel better about yourself.

  8. Excellent choice by the league this week. NFL’s leading rusher from the cream of the crop team in North gets his dues.

    OTOH, Packer betas claiming their RB, who’s not even in the top 12, even with a cake schedule and refs in his back pockets, believe they deserved this. Bwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Put a hold on that thought (just like the Pack OL do on every single play).

    You think the Chargers put a beating on the Pack? Wait till you see what the 9ers do to them. It will be UGLY.

    And sad.

    -tt

  9. Look at these Packer fans trying so hard to be relevant. They want so much for Aaron Jones to be as good as Dalvin Cook. Last I checked, 183 yards is almost twice as much as 93 yards, and this was against the 7th-ranked defense, not the 20th-ranked defense.

    So if Rodgers throws it all the way down the field most of the game, and in the Red Zone Jones stumbles in for three scores, he deserves the award more than lets say the player who not only scored once, but helped the Vikings get in the red zone more. The vikings ran the ball 10 times in a row, and Dallas knew they were going to, Do you really think Jones would be successful in that situation? You Packer fans need to calm down on the Aaron Jones talk. Jones has been productive because he has been more of a receiver than anything, especially before Adams came back….Dalvin has been a better Running back…and is used as a Running back….also plays behind a worst offensive line and a worst QB. Jones is having a great year no doubt but it’s more of the situation he is in. He has less rushing yards because he plays as more of a receiver. Stop comparing a WR/RB hybrid player to a legit RB in Dalvin Cook.

  11. The thing about Cook is that he excels in all phases — pass protection/blocking, running and receiving. You combine that with speed and the high yards after contact, and he is one of the more well-rounded RBs in the NFL. True and knowedgeable fans, not those myopically focused solely upon their team with green and gold glasses, recognize this fact.

  12. Jones wone it twice in October, Rodgers once. 3/4 for the MONTH went to GB. Give Cook his time now I guess.

    As to cake schedule, meh. Packers have beaten 5 teams this year that currently have winning records. No other team has beaten more than 3.

    Given so many teams have 2 or fewer losses, seems like they had the hardest schedule….
