Stud: Alexander Hollins

Alexander Hollins ended up leading things in the passing game for Minnesota in the contest, hauling in a team-best mark through the air.

With Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs and other key players on Minnesota’s offense sitting out the regular season finale in Minneapolis, Hollins led the offense with 46 yards receiving on two receptions and three overall targets.

The wide receiver managed to haul in a game-long reception of 35 yards in the contest to finish with the team-high 46 receiving yards.

It’s hard to know exactly how this loss to the Bears could impact the Vikings moving into the start of the NFC Playoffs next weekend, or if it will have an impact really at all, but the fact that Minnesota isn’t exactly playing great as of late is something to keep an eye on advancing into the postseason.
