Linebacker Eric Kendricks leads the Vikings with a team-high 61 tackles (40 solo) through eight games. Defensive end Everson Griffen has a team-high sacks, while safety Harrison Smith leads the team in interceptions (three).

During the late 1960s, the Vikings were building a powerful defense known as the Purple People Eaters , led by Alan Page , Carl Eller , Gary Larsen , and Jim Marshall. In 1968 , that stingy defense earned the Vikings their first Central Division title and their first playoff berth. They lost to Baltimore 24–14 in the Western Conference championship game.

“I’ve got some stuff to work on, but that’s part of the process,” said Cook, who rushed for 1,765 yards last season with the Seminoles.

Impacts: The Chiefs are locked into the AFC's fourth playoff seed, so Hill, as well as QB Alex Smith -- among others likely -- will sit things out in Week 17. As a result, look for the likes of Demarcus Robinson, Jehu Chesson and De'Anthony Thomas to see added wideout reps in Week 17. They'll be catching passes from rookie QB Patrick Mahomes.

Over the past 49 seasons, the Vikings have made 26 playoff appearances (18 Division titles), 8 NFC Championship game appearances and played in 4 Super Bowls. Former Vikings honored as Pro Football Hall of Famers include Carl Eller, Jim Finks, Bud Grant, Randall McDaniel, Paul Krause, Alan Page, John Randle, Fran Tarkenton and Ron Yary.
