WHAT TO WATCH FOR
Todd Gurley, running back
With a 71-yard touchdown run Sunday, Gurley is the first rookie to open his career with four consecutive 100-yard games since at least 1991, according to STATS, Inc.
Stopping Gurley will be the next test for the Vikings run defense, but it has been strong lately. Outlook: Horns up.
