Going into the game in Week 13 on Monday Night Football between Minnesota and Seattle, the Seahawks hold a narrow lead over the Vikings for the top Wild Card position, which will make for an interesting storyline and something to keep in mind throughout the game on Monday night.

While his return was officially listed as questionable, Cook looked like he was in vast pain and went straight to the locker room after the play. The Vikings entered the matchup with major problems on the offensive side of the ball and heading into one of the loudest stadiums in the National Football League didn't do much to help them out.

Seattle defensive end Rasheem Green punched the ball free of Cook's grasp on the first play of a Vikings possession.

The Seahawks trailed 17-10 at halftime, but tied it early in the third quarter when Rashaad Penny scored on a 1-yard run.

The Canadiens gave up 20 goals in their previous three games, forcing Claude Julien to tinker with his defensive pairings. Notes: Defenceman Victor Mete (lower-body injury) left the game and did not return.

This is the list of teams that, heading into this weekend, have allowed 263 or more points this year and have a winning record: The Seattle Seahawks.

Cousins threw a 58-yard touchdown pass to Laquon Treadwell minutes later, cutting the lead to 10. Myers booted a 36-yard field goal for the final margin, then C.J. Ham fumbled away the ensuing kickoff with seconds left on the clock.

The pass was initially tipped by Minnesota defensive tackle Armon Watts at the line of scrimmage.

As a result, John DiFilippo's offense was dealt its final hand against the Seahawks as Minnesota fell in a 21-7 game that was much closer than the final score indicated. Instead, he popped it up in the air and Harris swooped in for an easy pick and 20-yard return. He finished the outing with 15 touches for 74 yards on the ground and also factored nicely into the passing game, totaling four catches on five targets for 33 yards and a receiving touchdown.
