  • Vikings' Ivan Pace: Excels in rookie campaign

    Pace logged 102 tackles (63 solo), 2.5 sacks, two passes defended, an interception and a forced fumble and recovery during his rookie campaign.

    Pace made the Vikings' 53-man roster as an undrafted free agent out of Cincinnati and was ultimately able to win a spot as one of the team's two starting inside linebackers, as he earned a larger role as the season progressed. The 23-year-old is under contract for two more seasons and should be back in 2024 working to build on his successful rookie campaign.

  • Vikings' Ivan Pace: Leading tackler in loss

    Pace had a game-high 12 tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 33-10 loss to the Packers.

    After playing just 30 snaps a week ago, Pace played all 74 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss. He reached double-digit tackles for the second time this season. Pace has 93 tackles over 16 games, fourth on the Vikings in that category.

  • Vikings' Ivan Pace: Reduced playing time in loss

    Pace had four total tackles in Sunday's loss to Detroit. He moved to a reserve role and played on 30 of the defense's 79 snaps with the return of Jordan Hicks from a shin injury.

    Pace had taken over the starting interior linebacker role with Hicks out the previous four games and excelled. He averaged 10 total tackles per game with two sacks and an interception during that span. However, he was back to a more limited role Sunday. Pace did miss practice time during the week due to a shoulder injury, so that may have also limited his playing time.

  • Vikings' Ivan Pace: Active Sunday

    Pace (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Lions.

    Pace appeared on the injury report Friday despite practicing on a limited basis. The starting inside linebacker has yet to miss a game this season and he has not even missed a defensive snap over the past four games. The rookie has 77 tackles, two passes defensed, an interception and a forced fumble in 2023.

  • Vikings' Ivan Pace: Pops up on Friday injury report

    Pace (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions.

    Pace was a late addition to the Vikings' injury report after participating in a limited capacity in Friday's practice. He hasn't missed a game all season and has played every defensive snap over the past four games. If Pace is ruled out for Sunday's game, Brian Asamoah and Nick Vigil are candidates to start at inside linebacker alongside Troy Dye.

  • Vikings' Ivan Pace: Another productive day at Cincy

    Pace recorded nine tackles (seven solo) in Saturday's 27-24 overtime loss at Cincinnati.

    Pace tallied nine-plus total tackles for his fourth consecutive game in Week 15. It looks like Minnesota made a solid pickup when it signed the undrafted rookie out of Cincinnati during the preseason. He's on the IDP radar for Week 16 versus the Lions.

  • Vikings' Ivan Pace: Nine tackles in loss

    Pace had nine total tackles, a sack and a tackle for a loss in Monday's loss to Chicago.

    Pace played on all 68 defensive snaps, as he's taken over as the top linebacker with Jordan Hicks on injured reserve with a shin injury. It was Pace's first full sack of the season, as he hasn't been used as much on blitz packages. He has 1.5 sacks and is averaging 4.6 total tackles per game (but 9.0 total tackles per game the last two weeks in his new role).
