ESPN comments:
 

Had he not gotten hurt, Dalvin Cook might have been the rookie to talk about in Minnesota, but how about center Pat Elflein? He has started all 12 games for the Vikings and leads all rookies in snaps played.

The biggest risers of the week are the Dallas Cowboys, jumping seven spots from #21 to #14. The biggest fall of the week belongs to the Washington Redskins, dropping ten spots from #12 to #22.

The Vikings face the Panthers this Sunday afternoon in Charlotte, North Carolina.
