Everson Griffen sacked Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson during the 2015 playoff game that the Seahawks won 10-9.

Souhan: Vikings need to contain Wilson, minimize Seattle's big plays

My guess is that the Vikings will try to play Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson the way they did in the 2015 playoff game at TCF Bank Stadium, which worked well until the fourth quarter.

Souhan: Can the Vikings do without prime players tonight at Dallas?

Without nose tackle Linval Joseph, can a Vikings defensive line otherwise built for speed handle the power rushing of the Cowboys? And how will it be without Adam Thielen catching passes?

Washington wide receiver Terry McLaurin catches a pass for a touchdown against the Dolphins on Oct. 13

In six games with a dysfunctional offense Terry McLaurin has caught 24 passes for 419 yards and five touchdowns. Only two receivers have more touchdowns - Adam Thielen and Chris Godwin.
