The Vikings enter their bye week with an undefeated record of 5-0 and their defense continues to make headlines. On Sunday the Vikings defense sacked Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler three times and allowed just 214 yards of offense.

Although Osweiler is having a dreadful season, the Vikings defense have been punishing every quarterback that has come their way.

Minnesota has defeated Aaron Rodgers, Cam Newton and Eli Manning, who have a combined 4 Super Bowl appearances and 3 Super Bowl MVPs between them.

Through five games this season, the Vikings have held QBs to a 65.30 passer rating, which is the best figure in the NFL. Minnesota also has the NFL's top scoring defense, allowing just 12.6 points per game this season.

The Vikings' 19 sacks are tied with the Denver Broncos for tops in the NFL and opposing quarterbacks have also lost 145 yards because of those sacks, which is also the best figure in the NFL.

Minnesota's defense also leads the league with 11 takeaways this season too.
