The Minnesota Vikings have five games in the books in 2022, with a 4-1 record heading into Week 6.

First-year head coach Kevin O’Connell won for a fourth time, thanks to a game-winning drive by Kirk Cousins and a defensive yank-away from Cameron Dantzler. Next up, the Vikings head to Miami for a date with the Dolphins.
