The Minnesota Vikings fell behind early on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. Facing a 21-point deficit, running back Dalvin Cook came through with a monster 75-yard touchdown run.

Minnesota entered the season focused on making its running game a focal point. Even with a big deficit, the Vikings stuck to their plan and Cook rewarded them in a big way.

In his second season back from tearing his ACL, Cook is showing that his big-play speed is back and he’s ready to deliver a breakout season. The 24-year-old is already closing in on 200 rushing yards this season in less than six quarters.
