Vikings find success with revived rushing attack

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) Dalvin Cook took the first-down handoff for Minnesota, sized up the blocking at the line and veered hard to his left.

Miami cornerback Bobby McCain had the angle on him, but Cook won the race to the edge and accelerated up the sideline to reach the end zone untouched for the Vikings on their merry way to a 41-17 victory over the Dolphins .

That 13-yard touchdown run during a 21-point first quarter was a fitting snapshot of a performance by the offense that was as smooth as it's been all season. That play was called to the same side of the field six days earlier in a 21-7 loss at Seattle, when the Vikings were as flat as they've been all year in trying to move the ball.
