The Minnesota Vikings were not pleased with Arizona Cardinals defensive end J.J. Watt after his low tackle left Dalvin Cook injured.
The Minnesota Vikings and Arizona Cardinals engaged in quite the duel on Sunday afternoon, with the game going down to the wire. But for Vikings fans, the back-and-forth score was not the thing that scared them. Rather, it was star running back Dalvin Cook’s trips to the medical tent.
In the fourth quarter, Cook was injured after getting hit with a low tackle by Cardinals defensive end J.J. Watt. While getting checked out by Minnesota’s training staff, Watt kneeled beside Cook and spoke with him. When Watt got up, he was met by Vikings offensive tackles Brian O’Neill and Rashod Hill, who did not seem pleased with him.

While the interaction between Watt and Vikings offensive linemen will certainly have fans talking, the good news is that Cook returned later in the fourth quarter.
Cook went down earlier in the game and went to Minnesota’s medical tent, but returned shortly afterwards.
To make matters worse for Minnesota, they were set up for a potentially game-winning 37-yard field goal by kicker Greg Joseph. Instead, Joseph hooked it wide right to clinch the 34-33 victory for the Cardinals.
For those of you wondering what may have been said between Watt, Cook, O’Neill and Hill, you will just have to wait until the postgame press conferences take place. That is, if it the topic is even brought up.
