Minnesota Vikings’ season took a big blow last week when rookie running back Dalvin Cook went down with an injury to his left knee in the third quarter, a non-contact injury that was confirmed to be an ACL tear later.
On Monday Night Football, ESPN took a look back at that injury while the team was in the midst of taking on the Chicago Bears and fans couldn’t help but to notice that eerie music playing in the background.
The music sounded a lot like funeral music, like many pointed out, as a way of saying that injury pretty much ended the Vikings hope of doing anything this year.
