I thought it was a good team win yesterday," Zimmer said. "I thought we did some good things in all three phases.

"Special teams, we were able to get some yardage in the return game on the punt return. I thought we played fast on special teams yesterday. Eric Wilson played very well, Jayron Kearse did a nice job there. Offensively, obviously the two receivers (Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen) and [Kirk] Cousins played outstanding. Defensively, I thought we did some much better things this week. We're going to try to continue to clean it up, get better and continue to move forward."

The Vikings have one new injury concern this week with left tackle Riley Reiff (foot). A source told KSTP's Darren Wolfson that cornerback Trae Waynes has a chance to be back this week after missing the Eagles game due to a concussion.
