Bennett Second In Career Rushing Category

The Vikings had to abandon their running game midway through the second half, but that didn't stop Michael Bennett from getting enough yards to pass Herschel Walker in a career rushing statistic.


1) David Dixon started his 93rd game, which ties him with Wes Hamilton for fourth most by a Vikings guard.

2) Harold Morrow played in his 64th consecutive game, which ties him with Charles Evans for fourth most by a Vikings running back.

3) Michael Bennett's 56 yards rushing give him a career total of 1,018. That makes him the second quickest (19 games) Vikings running back to reach 1,000 yards. Chuck Foreman (1973-74) holds the record at 15 games. Herschel Walker (1989-90) is in third place at 20 games.

4) Lance Johnstone becomes the first Vikings player to block a field goal since Stalin Colinet did it against San Francisco on Dec. 7, 1997.

5) This was the 13th consecutive regular-season road loss for the Vikings.

6) The Vikings are now 1-6 versus the Jets.
