Dalvin Cook did his part to keep the Minnesota Vikings in the playoff hunt when they played against the Miami Dolphins in Week 15 with a slick spin move on his second touchdown of the game.

The Vikings defeated the Dolphins 41-17 in Minneapolis, with their running game having a career-best game on the ground.

Cook finished the game with 19 carries for 136 yards and two touchdowns, as well as one catch for 27 yards, his best performance since his NFL debut last year against the New Orleans Saints.

His best move of the game, however, came on the last score of the game late in the fourth quarter as the Vikings were looking to run out the clock to seal the win.

With just under eight minutes to go in the contest, Cook scored a 21-yard rushing touchdown, but during the run, he faked out a Dolphins defender by executing a slick spin move to make him miss a tackle.

After the spin move, the running back then shifted his way towards the right side of the field before coasting into the endzone for his second touchdown of the day, effectively sealing the victory for Minnesota.

This wasn't Cook's only touchdown on the day, as his first came during the first quarter on a 13-yard run to give the Vikings a 14-0 lead.

The Vikings running back now has 503 yards and two touchdowns on the 2018 season after nine games played due to injury.

Vikings' Dalvin Cook had a career game against the Miami Dolphins

Cook wasn't the only good performer in the backfield for the Vikings against the Dolphins, as Latavius Murray had a good game too, rushing for 68 yards and a touchdown off 15 carries.

With the win, Minnesota moved to 7-6-1 and maintained their grasp on the second and final Wild Card spot in the NFC. They will head to Detroit next weekend for an NFC North rivalry game against the Lions.
