Vikings RB Dalvin Cook suffers right shoulder injury vs. Seahawks

Seahawks RB Chris Carson scored a game-tying TD in the first quarter Monday

Seahawks RB Chris Carson scored a game-tying TD in the first quarter Monday

The Vikings started out strong, leading the Seahawks by a touchdown, 17-10, at half-time after the offense got within field goal range with around a minute left in the half and went ahead by a touchdown. Maybe the injury is more serious than they are letting on. Another win over their rival in the season finale should be what it takes to lock the Seahawks in as No. 1 or No. 2 seed, which would force at least one NFC team to try to win a playoff game in Seattle.

Defensively, LB Bobby Wagner posted a team-high 10 tackles, while CB Tre Flowers had a key interception early in the fourth quarter. That was the case on Monday night as the Seahawks employed an extra offensive lineman for much of the game and rushed for 218 yards on 43 carries and two touchdowns. Possibly, but the Vikings would be facing a thousand-times more criticism if Cook's injury was made even worse by staying out on the field and he was forced to miss some time during the final few weeks of the season. They also ran all over the Vikings, which was impressive.

Despite remaining on the sideline after being evaluated in the locker room, the running back said he felt like he could have returned to the game if needed, but the Vikings chose to keep him out for "precautionary" reasons.

They were among the six Seahawks listed on the injury report with an illness. Moore said after the game that the receivers decided "We wanted to go back old school a little bit, and New Edition was one thing we all came up with".

The Green Bay Packers have separated from the Minnesota Vikings in a big week atop the NFC North.

Minnesota fell to 8-4 on the season with the loss. This season they are 16th in total defense, giving up 347.4 yards per game; 20th against the pass (242.9); 15th against the rush (104.5); and 11th in scoring defense (20.2).

Cook did tell reporters after the game that he injured his chest (or re-injured his chest, as he showed up on the injury report this week), and that he'll "definitely be ready to go Sunday". So, they got that going for them... right?
