The Minnesota Vikings are currently 2-2 headed into an early bye week and firmly behind the Green Bay Packers in the great race for the NFC North crown. Still, the latest road loss provided some hope that this team isn’t too far behind the truly great ones, and this segment is all about focusing on the positive individual performances of the week.
Last week, in one of the closest votes in the history of this heralded (by me) award, safety Harrison Smith edged out running back Adrian Peterson for the weekly honors. Peterson won the honors in Week Two and linebacker Anthony Barr got it in the debacle that took place in Week One. You can always keep tabs on the weekly results by bookmarking our Schedule Page.
The 23-20 loss didn’t yield an enormous amount of dominating performances on the part of the Vikings, but there were enough standouts to make this week’s poll another interesting one. Read about the nominees and then cast your vote below.
