Dalvin Cook Rushes Past 1,000-yard Mark for 2nd Straight Year


MINNEAPOLIS — Dalvin Cook has hit a grand mark on the ground once again.

Cook surpassed 1,000 rushing yards on the season in the second half Sunday against the Cowboys, making it two consecutive seasons of hitting the milestone for the Vikings running back.

Cook entered Week 11 as the NFL's leading rusher with 954 yards, and needed just 46 yards for back-to-back 1,000 yards seasons. He also entered Week 11 with a league-best 12 rushing touchdowns.

The 2017 second-round pick, who signed a multiyear contract extension in the offseason, became the fifth Minnesota running back with multiple 1,000-yard rushing seasons in Purple.

He joined Chuck Foreman (1975-77), Terry Allen (1992 and 1994), Robert Smith (1997-2000) and Adrian Peterson (2007-2013; 2015).

Cook ran for 1,135 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2019, and was selected to his first-career Pro Bowl.
