And he had little to no impact in the first half of the game. Apart from a very good series in the 3rd quarter, he didn't really do much until the game was just about out of reach and the Lions were in full on catch up mode.
Cook's injury does hurt the Vikings, but let's not overrate the *******. The Lions made adjustments (on a handful of Johnson's catches they brought in an extra lineman to help buy him and Stafford some time), and even with Cook, the secondary likely isn't good enough to hold down a guy that talented for 8 quarters.
I'm not disputing that Megatron's numbers were better in the 2nd game, but they exaggerate his impact on the actual game.
