Mychal Vs. Eric, round three
Vikings LB Eric Kendricks had an interception, but older brother Mychal was on the winning team in the Kendricks brothers' third NFL matchup. Mychal had five tackles for the Seahawks in his return from an eight-game suspension after a guilty plea to insider trading. Mychal's Eagles beat Eric's Vikings in 2016 and in last year's NFC Championship Game.
Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes vs. Seattle WR Tyler Lockett
Lockett was targeted six times and caught five passes, and Rhodes also had a costly 31-yard pass interference penalty on Lockett, who wins the battle.
PLAY OF THE GAME
ALL HOPE FADES AWAY
The Vikings were in desperation mode, trailing 14-0 late, when QB Kirk Cousins (8) was harassed by Seattle ends Frank Clark (55) and Jacob Martin (59). Martin hit Cousins as he was starting to throw toward Stefon Diggs (14), and the fumble was scooped up by Justin Martin (28) and returned 29 yards for a touchdown.
"It's frustrating when you don't execute."
