Running back by committee? Perhaps Dalvin Cook is the next workhorse running back after Adrian Peterson.
The rookie, who slid down draft boards because of character and injury concerns, found enough room for 127 yards on 22 carries in his NFL debut. His breakthrough came in the fourth quarter with runs for 32 and 33 yards.
"They took a chance on me, bringing me into this organization," Cook said. "It's important for me to come out and compete for those guys."
Cook's night could've been bigger, but he dropped a potential touchdown catch near the goal line. He still became the Vikings' first 100-yard rusher since Peterson on Dec. 27, 2015.
Cook's 25 touches towered over McKinnon's six and Latavius Murray's two.
Here's video from every time he touched the ball on Monday.
