Minnesota Vikings defense holds Seattle to two touchdowns in Week 3 win

The Minnesota Vikings defense held the Seattle Seahawks to 404 total yards and 17 points in a decisive 30-17 Week 3 win at home.

Fantasy Impact:

The Vikings' defense struggled to contain their opponents for the first two weeks of the season. However, at their home debut in Week 3, the defensive unit rallied and sacked Russell Wilson twice, holding him to just seven rushing yards and constantly disrupting him with pressure in the pocket. It's still a risky decision to roll the Vikings D/ST into lineups against the Cleveland Browns in Week 4, but their schedule does soften up against the Detroit Lions in Week 5.
