“With the performance, Cook joined Adrian Peterson and Ring of Honor member Chuck Foreman as the only players in team history to rush for 200 or more yards in a game,” the Vikings said in a release.

It’s the second straight week the four-year pro has received the honor, making him the first non-quarterback to be named in consecutive weeks since Todd Gurley in 2017. Cook also received the award for his performance against the Green Bay Packers in Week 8.

Cook has now received the honor four times over the course of his NFL career.
