Cards win 34-33 thriller after Vikings miss last-second FG

— Arizona's Jordan Hicks didn't dare turn around as Minnesota's potential game-winning field goal floated toward the uprights. Instead, he watched the videoboard for a moment and then locked eyes with Ezekial Turner, who had been knocked to the turf,...

Quite a difference for the Vikings' offense in the first quarter of the Cardinals game. Dalvin Cook already has 7 touches for 67 yards (he had 20 carries for 61 yards total vs. Cincinnati) and Minnesota is averaging 11.3 yards per play. That's a far cry from how they started on the road at Cincinnati in Week 1. Also - no penalties yet. That's notable.

Eric Kendricks is ACTIVE vs. Arizona. His status was questionable for Week 2 due to a quad injury. Good news for Minnesota not having to be down its top two linebackers. Vikings inactives: Anthony Barr (knee), Everson Griffen (concussion), Christian Darrisaw (groin), Harrison Hand (hamstring), Kellen Mond, James Lynch, Chazz Surratt. QB Sean Mannion and S Myles Dorn were promoted to the active roster from the PS, and RB Ameer Abudullah was signed to the 53 on Saturday.

Vikes' Griffen in protocol after deer causes wreck

Vikings DE Everson Griffen will not play against the Cardinals after being placed in the concussion protocol. Coach Mike Zimmer said Griffen was injured in a car crash that occurred when he swerved to avoid hitting a deer.

Vikings inactives: Anthony Barr (knee), Christian Darrisaw (groin), Kellen Mond, Cameron Dantzler, Ben Ellefson, James Lynch, Patrick Jones. Sean Mannion, who was signed to the PS at the end of the preseason, was elevated to the game day roster yesterday and will be Kirk Cousins' backup. Dantzler being inactive is somewhat of a surprise. He had an up and down camp and fell down the depth chart behind Kris Boyd and is a 3rd stringer after starting last season as a rookie.
