MINNEAPOLIS – The Minnesota Vikings weren't getting mortified on the national stage for a second in succession preoccupation.
Truly requiring a win to keep their playoff confides in alive, they turned out and advantageously pounded the division square with Green Bay Packers 24-17 to gain ground to 6-4-1 on the season.

This was a basic triumph in light of the fact that multi week from now the Vikings travel to New England, where wins don't come easily.

Here are three things we learned Sunday night.

1. The Vikings get it

Mike Zimmer's players appreciated the essentialness of this diversion and acknowledged they expected to strike with the sentiment of criticalness. They got off to a chaotic start, yet as the preoccupation propelled, the gathering got key keeps from the monitor and set up together advantageous drives on offense.

Minnesota had the look of a squad that acknowledged it anticipated that would win to keep playoff confides in alive. Quarterback Kirk Cousins was tumbling off of his most recognizably terrible diversion as a Viking (two

catch endeavors to keep running with two touchdowns and a quarterback rating of 76.5) and he had everybody's eyes on him Sunday night in light of the way that the Vikings fans expected to acknowledge he would respond. The quarterback skiped bigly, completing 29 of 38 goes for 342 yards and three touchdowns.

Enhancing the circumstance for Cousins was the manner in which that the Packers' pass flood isn't at all like that of the Bears. Minnesota's line worked outstandingly of guaranteeing the quarterback, and Cousins held up his complete of the game plan. He had a part of his best hurls in the second half with his gathering requiring first downs and core interests.

2. Assurance does regardless have any kind of effect

This time of the preoccupation is frequently disregarded in the present NFL where bunches convey PC amusement like scores and heap on record-setting yardage totals. Nevertheless, strong wary responsibilities do as a general rule still have a place in this class.

The Vikings made incredible weight on Aaron Rodgers with defensive handle Sheldon Richardson driving the course with two sacks. The unsettling influence made it troublesome for the Packers to move anything in the last seventy five percent of the beguilement. Green Bay was a woeful 2-for-10 on third downs and managed only 14 first downs stood out from the Vikings' 22.

Give the Vikings affirmation for the way in which that they regrouped in the wake of offering little security from start the redirection. Resulting to surrendering two early touchdowns to the Packers, Minnesota obliged Green Bay to just 23 yards in the second quarter and kept Rodgers and Co. out of the end zone whatever remains of the redirection.

3. This just isn't Green Bay's year

The Packers starting at now were on a puzzling course as they entered this entertainment with a 4-5-1 record. Regardless, now at 4-6-1, and well behind exceptional case hopefuls in the Redskins, Vikings, Panthers and Seahawks, Green Bay can on a very basic level kiss its postseason confides in goodbye.

In their last five entertainments, the Packers will go up against the Cardinals, Falcons, Bears, Jets and Lions. They'll encounter trouble against the Bears, anyway wins are possible against the four unique opponents. That still won't more likely than not be adequate, regardless. The Packers have some wonderful pieces, yet changes unquestionably are coming. Mike McCarthy's play-calling is, as it were, dull. The defend needs more differentiation makers, and Rodgers could use another weapon or two.
