5. The Vikings got it right with their special teams battery
There was some consternation about the Vikings special teams battery (kicker, long snapper, punter) this summer. But that consternation has given way to solid play through five games in the regular season. On Sunday, veteran kicker Dan Bailey converted both of his extra points and all four of his field goals – from distances of 31, 32, 45 and 48 yards. Austin Cutting was accurate on his snaps and punter Britton Colquitt executed his role of holder to perfection and did well on his lone punt – a 57-yarder.
