Derwin James and Alohi Gilman collided in the end zone covering those two crossing routes. That's how Tyler Conklin got so open. Touchdown Vikings.
Gruden: "Obviously dealing with the Shanahans was something that they did not want to do. I don't think that they could stomach having Kirk Cousins be successful for Kyle Shanahanâ€¦ and I think there was still some hope that we could re-sign him." Kirk talk around 49:00 mark.

Bashaud Breeland is playing, which is big. Kris Boyd was awful last week. twitter.com/Vikings/statusâ€¦
Cam Dantzler is being looked at in the injury tent. The Vikings can't afford many more injuries at cornerback with Patrick Peterson already out and Bashaud Breeland playing through a groin injury.
Patrick Jones is playing wild with those gap assignments
