MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Though they finished November on a terrible note, the Minnesota Vikings know this: Finish strong, and the slump is forgotten.
What a poor performance by Seattle's players. Coming into this game, most people thought it'd be a shootout, but instead the Seahawks shot themselves in the foot. This team didn't look good in any aspect of the game and its poor play on the road is dooming it to a potential early playoff exit.
Question on the Vikings: Given the Vikings' recent skid, how big of a win is this?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
Michael Bennett carried a season-high 25 times for 103 yards for the Vikings before spraining his right ankle in the fourth quarter. He was held out as a precaution. ... Alexander was held to 56 yards rushing on 14 carries.
