ESPN comments:
 

Need more from RB Dalvin Cook. Backup Latavius Murray has scored in back-to-back weeks, but the Vikings still rank 22nd in yards per rush and first downs per rush. Cook has not played since Week 2 with a persistent hamstring injury, and he was averaging only 2.7 yards per rush before he went down.

The biggest riser of the week are the Houston Texans, jumping five spots from #21 to #17. The biggest falls of the week belong to the Eagles, Bengals, and Jaguars, each dropping four spots. 

The Vikings face the New Orleans Saints Sunday night at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
