All eyes were on rookie running back Dalvin Cook as he made his professional debut with the Vikings Thursday night.
Cook started and was the focus of the first three plays of the game. He finished with four receptions and was clearly a difference-maker in the passing game.

According to Pro Football Focus, of the 18 snaps Cook was on the field for, he carried the ball five times, ran 12 routes and stayed in to pass block once. He finished with 13 rushing yards and 30 receiving yards.
Vikings cornerback Trae Waynes injured his shoulder during the first quarter of the game.
Waynes grabbed his shoulder after tackling Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins on the first possession of the game. He tackling Watson again on the next play and left the field and did not return.
“Just a sore shoulder, I guess,” head coach Mike Zimmer said after the game.
