The Vikings' defense finally gets the job done, after a rough start to the season

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) For all the firepower the Minnesota Vikings possess on offense, the straightest path to their first victory was always going to travel through the defense.

The maligned group delivered when the Vikings needed it, fueling a comeback at Carolina that removed the team from the dreaded winless list.

“It’s a huge thing for team building when the defense says, ‘You know what? I’ve got your back,' and they go out there and made some critical plays," coach Kevin O’Connell said after the 21-13 victory.
