It's no secret, the Vikings defense is crazy good!
That's obvious on the surface, but when you dive a little deeper into the numbers you're gonna be wowed even more! It was finalized and made official today as the Vikings set an all-time NFL record for defensive conversion rate allowed on third downs, well all-time since they started tracking the stat in 1991.
It’s official. The Vikings 2017 defense is the best 3rd Down defense since the league began tracking 3rd Down conversions in 1991.— Walt Scher (@Ctrl_Walt_Dlt) December 31, 2017
51/202 for 25.2%.
Allowing only one third down conversion on the day, this Vikings defense will also finish the year as the #1 defense in points allowed and top of the league in almost every other category that they track.
