Zadarius Smith had three sacks to help him in his fire-up defense against Kyler Murray
On Sunday, the Vikings defeated the Cardinals 34-26 for their fifth consecutive win.
Haste for a touchdown and Dalvin Cook's season-high 111 yards Kirk Cousins passed for two scores and ran for another
O'Connell's rookie year saw Vikings (6-1) coach Kevin remain unbeaten at home.
“I thought we were a really good football team last year. We just couldn’t find the inches in too many games. Why we found them now, I don’t know,” Cousins said.
In an action-packed matchup last year in Arizona, Murray made three touchdowns and two interceptions in a 34-33 win.
The Vikings lost eight games last season to eight points or less. All his five victories in the streak have been within this gap.
“It feels good. I just hate that people still are not talking about us, but it’s OK,” Smith said. “We’ll continue to be the underdogs.”
“We’re right there. It’s not like we’re getting blown out,” Hopkins said. "This is one of the best teams in the NFL, and we had a chance to win today.”
