The Vikings secondary did a good job of taking away the deep ball, forcing the Seahawks to dump the ball off.
Cedric Griffin looked good while playing a single series for the Vikings' defense.
On the first play of the game, Griffin made his presence felt by breaking up Tarvaris Jackson's pass intended for Golden Tate.
After a rough game last week, Chris Cook looked much better against the Seahawks, providing good coverage on former teammate Sidney Rice.
He also made a nice play on special teams.
The star of the game was undrafted second-year player Marcus Sherels. After fumbling a punt return, Sherels redeemed himself by intercepting a bobbled pass and returning it 64 yards for a touchdown.
With Asher Allen sidelined, Rookie Brandon Burton entered the game when Cedric Griffin came out. He performed pretty well and should continue to improve as he adjusts to the speed of the NFL.
Tyrell Johnson and Jamarca Sanford continued their battle for the starting free safety, but neither player was very impressive. Rookie Mistral Raymond is actually my favorite to win the job. He made a couple nice plays against the Seahawks.
Overall, the Vikings' secondary improved on their first performance, but I would like to see more out of the safety position this weekend against the Cowboys.
