The offensive formula for the Minnesota Vikings has been fairly simple this season. Establish the run with Dalvin Cook to set up some play-action deep shots for Kirk Cousins.

With Cook unable to get anything going on the ground against San Francisco, the Vikings had no chance against a healthy 49ers defense and lost the divisional round playoff game 27-10.

Cook got the ball 15 times on the day and was held to only 26 yards. He gained 18 yards on nine carries and 8 on six catches.
