Oakland Raiders embarrassed on the road by the Minnesota Vikings
By Brad Weiss
1. Dalvin Cook, Minnesota Vikings
Becoming the first Vikings running back to rush for over 100 yards in three straight games to open a season since Adrian Peterson, Dalvin Cook stole the show on Sunday, running all over the Raiders defense. Cook finished his day with not only more than 100 yards, but also an average of nearly seven yards per carry, while scoring once.
2. Adam Thielen, Minnesota Vikings
Adam Thielen got the party started early for the Vikings in this one, scoring through the air, and on the ground during the first half. The star wideout for Minnesota was a security blanket for Kirk Cousins throughout, proving once again to be one of the better wide receivers in the NFL against a very weak Raiders secondary.
3. Darren Waller, Oakland Raiders
One of the lone bright spots for the Raiders on Sunday, Darren Waller put his incredible skill set on display in front of the Vikings faithful. Waller finished the game with 13 catches for 134 yards, and without him, this team may not have been able to move the ball at all.
