ESPN comments:
 

Sam Bradford played well before his injury, and Case Keenum has been great with Bradford out. As a result, the Vikings have the best team Total QBR (74) this season. Give credit to the pass protection, too. The Vikings have allowed 12 sacks this year, tied for fewest in the NFL.

The biggest risers of the week are the Buffalo Bills, jumping seven spots from #24 to #17. The biggest fall of the week belongs to the Dallas Cowboys, dropping eight spots from #13 to #21.

The Vikings face the Falcons this Sunday afternoon in Atlanta.
