TV broadcast showed Mike Zimmer peeved at the no-catch call on Adam Thielen's touchdown before halftime. His thoughts on the overturned TD: "I just think the whole thing's messed up. I've been doing this for 30 years and I know what a catch looks like. The ball moved a little bit, yeah, but he caught the ball."

Vikings DE Griffen playing with plantar fasciitis

Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen revealed on Monday that he's battling plantar fasciitis. The injury hasn't caused Griffen to slow down. Griffen returned to action in Week 11 against the Rams and has registered three sacks since the injury.

Trae Waynes had one of his better games of the year against Carolina. Per PFF, Waynes allowed four of the six passes thrown into his coverage to be caught for a total of 33 yards and allowed only one yard after the catch. His 13 stops against the run on the year are the most of any cornerback in the NFL.

The Vikings offensive line allowed 16 total pressures in Week 14, yielding three sacks, four hits and nine hurries, according to Pro Football Focus. Riley Reiff gave up a sack for a second straight game after not allowing a sack in Weeks 1-12, which was the only pressure he allowed vs. Panthers. Rashod Hill and Jeremiah Sirles were forced to shift spots after Reiff went down (Hill from RT to LT, Sirles from LG to RT) and each allowed five pressures.

Everson Griffen revealed the injury he sustained against the Browns is plantar fasciitis. It's something he's been able to play through after missing Week 10 and an injury he expects to heal over time as his foot is "only getting better." Griffen played 93 percent of snaps in the last three weeks and detailed the key to keeping his body in top shape revolves around an extensive rehabilitation process that includes four hour massages, cyrotherapy, use of a hyperbaric chamber and meeting with his movement coach on Monday's.
