Vikings’ pass rush continues to impress in absence of Griffen, Hunter

SB Nation


Article Summary:

According to Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the Vikings tied a record set by the 1974 Oakland Raiders by recording multiple quarterback sacks in the first 14 games of the season. As Goessling points out, the regular season was only 14 games then, so if the Vikings can take Matthew Stafford to the turf at least twice on Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium, they’ll have the regular season record to themselves. The three sacks by Wonnum on Sunday night give him six on the season, tying him with Danielle Hunter for the team lead. Hunter has not played since Week 8 when he tore his pectoral against the Dallas Cowboys, an injury that ended his season.

Danielle Hunter – 6 D.J. Wonnum – 6 Everson Griffen – 5 Eric Kendricks – 5 Armon Watts – 5

Despite Griffen and Hunter not being on the field, the Vikings continue to lead the NFL in quarterback sacks with 44, which nearly doubles their total from last season with three games still left to be played.
