ESPN comments:

With a new quarterback stepping into a new offense, there were bound to be some bumps in the road. Kirk Cousins has exceeded expectations at times but also has had his growing pains. The running game was expected to be better, but injuries to Dalvin Cook and the offensive line's early struggles hindered production. With Cook back, Minnesota's rushing attack has the explosive spark it was missing. All in all, racking up five wins before their Week 10 bye is something the Vikings are understandably proud of given the brutal stretch of games they faced over the first nine weeks.

The biggest riser of the week are the Houston Texans, jumping five spots from #16 to #11. The biggest fall of the week belongs to the Baltimore Ravens, dropping five spots from #10 to #15. 

The Vikings have a bye this week and will face the Bears Sunday night, November 19th at Soldier Field in Chicago.
