In a shockingly dominant win, the Minnesota Vikings trounced the former top seed of the AFC, the Houston Texans, 23-6. Naturally, the win was a team effort, but a number of individual efforts stood out for better and worse.
The Vikings defense stood out in a big way, but the offense still found a way to make plays. Despite slowing down after a great first drive, Christian Ponder and the Vikings managed to consistently put points on the board, salting away the victory with a final touchdown run from Toby Gerhart.
While some members of the squad were key to the win, others should be expected to do better if the Vikings finish out their unlikely playoff run and make it to the big dance.
