The Minnesota Vikings took a step back with a 2-2 record in October, both losses against teams with a below-.500 record. The month began with a lopsided impressive win over the Tennessee Titans at home. It finished with a disappointing lopsided home loss to Tampa Bay Buccaneers and a regular season-ending injury to Chris Cook.
The Minnesota Vikings had an anemic pass rush in 2007. So, the team went out and acquired the individual sack leader that season during the offseason. There were concerns over some off-field issues, but he has become one of the team’s best playmakers and leaders.
