Former Vikings wide receiver Randy Moss and guard Steve Hutchinson were named semifinalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Running back Roger Craig, who played for the Vikings from 1992-93, was also named a semifinalist. The best years of his career, however, came in San Francisco during the 1980s.

Despite Detroit winning Sunday, Minnesota's odds to win the division climbed eight percentage points, by FPI's measure. The Vikings now have the fifth-best chance in the NFL to win Super Bowl LII.

Power Rankings: Vikings move up in Week 12

The Vikings' season has been a triumph so far thanks to Case Keenum, who has taken just one sack in his past six games and has posted the league's best Total QBR (94) against the blitz this season.

Thielen feelin' good

Vikings WR Adam Thielen became just the second NFL player during the last two seasons to accumulate 380 or more receiving yards over a three-game span with at least a touchdown reception in each game (T.Y. Hilton did it for the Colts last season). The only other Vikings players to have at least 380 receiving yards over three games with a touchdown in each are Randy Moss and Cris Carter.

NFL Playoff Picture: Where Vikings stand after Week 11

The Vikings won't have much time to celebrate Sunday's victory over the Rams: They travel to Detroit on Thanksgiving for a game that will have an enormous impact on the NFC North race.

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

Even though they already held the No. 1 spot in FPI's rankings, the Eagles improved their FPI rating more than anyone else this week after blowing out the Cowboys. The ratings for the Chargers, Ravens, Vikings and Patriots also were upgraded by more than a point following their respective performances yesterday. Remember, FPI isn't describing what has happened but is rating team strength going forward.

Keenum keeps shredding the blitz

The Rams blitzed a season-high 20 times on Sunday, but Case Keenum made them pay, going 15-of-20 for 191 yards and a score. It was just more of the same from Keenum, who has toasted opponents' blitzes at home all season.

Performances like the one the Vikings turned in on Sunday validate the belief that this team is for real and could be playing on its home turf come Super Bowl Sunday.

Mike Zimmer on how Case Keenum's play affects his plans for Teddy Bridgewater: It's going to be hard to yank him out of there right now. He's playing good. I still have really high hopes, you know a lot of things happen throughout the course of this season, so we'll just see how it goes.
