The Minnesota Vikings fear rookie cornerback Mike Hughes tore the ACL in his left knee in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals, a source confirmed.

Ben Fawkes ESPN Staff Writer 

The Minnesota Vikings beat the Arizona Cardinals 27-17 and cover the final spread of -9.5. Game goes just over the total of 43.5.

Adam Thielen is already over 150 PPR fantasy points for the season. He's the fourth WR this century to score at least that many in his team's first six games of a season, joining Wes Welker (167.4, 2011), DeAndre Hopkins (156.6, 2015) and T.J. Houshmandzadeh (152.8, 2007).

Kirk Cousins had 17 delay of game penalties entering Week 6, which was tied for ninth-most since he entered the league in 2012. His first and second quarter performances were relatively similar in terms of output, but the second quarter interception and two sacks he took on back-to-back drives speaks to how uncomfortable he's been under pressure today. 1st Qtr 9-11, 82 yards, 1 sack 2nd Qtr 9-15, 92 yards, 1 Int, 2 sacks

Courtney Cronin ESPN Staff Writer 

That's one way to end a half. Kirk Cousins hits Kyle Rudolph and Adam Thielen on back-to-back 17 yard passes only for Minnesota to get called for delay of game one play after Cousins spiked the ball to stop the clock.. Dan Bailey hits a 48-yard field goal to give the Vikings a 13-10 lead.

Latavius Murray's 52 yards rushing in the first quarter are more than any Vikings player has amounted for with in an entire game this season. The Vikings didn't have 21 rushing yards (the length of Murray's touchdown) or a rushing touchdown in 3 of their 5 games opening quarters this season entering today.

The Vikings were thinking a pitch count of about half the offensive snaps would have been the sweet spot for Dalvin Cook today. They went into the Rams game with a similar plan, expecting him to play between 15-20 snaps (he logged 18) in hopes of him not re-aggrevating his hamstring injury. Instead of making him active vs. Arizona, the Vikings decided the best line of action was to let Cook sit another week so can aim for full health against the Jets. Cook said on Friday that his absence in Philly was not due to re-injuring his hamstring, which came one week after his return in Los Angeles.

Courtney Cronin ESPN Staff Writer 

Sources told ESPN that the Vikings anticipated Dalvin Cook would play in Week 6 despite not being 100 percent with his hamstring, but his on field warmups must have revealed he wasn't ready to go just yet. Full inactive list: Cook, Andrew Sendejo (groin), Tashawn Bower (ankle), Riley Reiff (foot), Everson Griffen (not football related), Kyle Sloter, Devante Downs

Vikings RB Cook questionable against Cardinals

Vikings running back Dalvin Cook was back to being limited on Friday after practicing in full on Thursday, the first time he was able to go through an entire session since injuring his left hamstring in Green Bay on Sept. 16.

Courtney Cronin ESPN Staff Writer 

Dalvin Cook isn't approaching getting back on the field after dealing with the ups and downs of his hamstring injury with the mindset of needing to prove anything. "Me going out there 80 percent, 70 percent, I'm not going to be able to help my team like that," Cook said. "We got a bunch of guys that are 100 percent that can help the team win football games. At this point, it's just me getting 100 percent so I can go out there and be who I am and that's be explosive."

Courtney Cronin ESPN Staff Writer 

Dalvin Cook was upgraded from limited to a full participant in practice today, the first time he's been listed as full since injuring his hamstring in OT in Green Bay on Sept. 16.
