Dalvin Cook leads Vikings past Packers with record performance at Lambeau Field

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook (33) broke past the Green Bay Packers defense as he ran the ball in for a touchdown in the third quarter.

GREEN BAY, WIS. - In recent years, the Vikings have drafted running backs, hired and fired offensive coordinators, and offered an eight-­figure contract based on an almost countercultural belief that they can base their offense around a forceful running game in an era in which teams are throwing the ball more frequently than ever.

They got Dalvin Cook back from a strained groin in time for Sunday's game at Lambeau Field, intending to lean heavily on the Pro Bowler in a building where he ran for 154 yards a year ago.

On the first day of November, when swirling winds whipped through the empty stadium bowl at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour, the Vikings' second - and undoubtedly their most prized - victory of the season became evidence for their thesis. It will be remembered for one of the greatest individual performances in the venerated stadium's 63-year history.
