EDGE Analysis

Griffen broke a three-game drought by recording his fifth sack of the season. In addition, his five tackles represented the most he's had in any contest this year. His strong play hasn't always been represented on the stat sheet, but after recording double-digit sacks in each of the past two campaigns, he's in position to reach that milestone yet again.

Griffen recorded six tackles with two sacks Sunday against the Packers and added one forced fumble.

EDGE Analysis

Griffen uncorked a monster game in Sunday's season finale against the Packers, taking advantage of a banged up offensive line to post his best individual performance of the season. He wasn't only a force as a pass rusher, however, as he was also able to record of run stuffs totaling six yards lost for the Packers. Griffen continues to improve as a versatile defensive end that can rush the passer, as evidenced by his back-to-back seasons with double-digit sacks. At just 28 years of age, Griffen is showing no signs of slowing down.

Griffin (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Bears, Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

True to his word, Griffen will suit up Sunday, despite practicing on just one occasion this week. Though Griffen's total of 33 tackles over 12 games leaves a little to be desired, his ability to consistently get after the quarterback has justified the big contract extension the Vikings handed him in March 2014. After a 12-sack campaign in 2014, Griffen has compiled 8.5 sacks so far this season.
