The Minnesota Vikings (3-2-1) won for the second straight week, defeating the Arizona Cardinals 27-17 Sunday afternoon at U.S. Bank in Minneapolis.

The Vikings rushing game finally came to life, and the defense showed signs that it may be returning to dominance, sacking Arizona quarterback Josh Rosen four times.

Kirk Cousins completed 24 of 34 attempts for 233 yards and a touchdown toss to Thielen -- and a TD run of his own.

Latavius Murray was Minnesota's leading rusher with 25 carries for 155 yards and a touchdown. Dalvin Cook was inactive again this week. Thielen was the leading receiver with 7 catches for 123 yards and one TD. Theilen has now started the season with six straight games with 100+ receiving yards.

Next: The Vikings visit the New York Jets at Noon CT on Sunday, October 21st at Met Life Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. (TV: FOX, Radio: AM 1240 WJON)
