Rookie WR Stefon Diggs (28 rec, 461 yards, 2 TDs) has quickly taking over the role of Minnesota’s deep-threat.

“The last three or four ballgames, this kind of shows what kind of team we are as far as how we are on offense, how we are defensively and how we are on special teams,” Zimmer said. “We’re probably not going to go up and down the field like the Greatest Show on Turf. This is how we’re built to win right now.”

Minnesota’s defense allows 17.2 points (2nd), 221.0 passing yards (6th) and 111.6 rushing yards (19th) per game. Harrison Smith has 44 tackles, Everson Griffen 4.5 sacks and Linval Joseph seven tackles for a loss.
