Houston Texans vs. Minnesota Vikings Preview and Prediction

By John Gworek, 2 months 3 days ago
The demise of the Minnesota Vikings was apparently greatly exaggerated. A team that many thought was doomed when Teddy Bridgewater was injured before Week 1 — and especially when Adrian Peterson went down in Week 2 — sits atop the NFC North at 4–0, one of three unbeaten teams left in the NFL.   Thanks to a mistake-free offense and a stifling, big-play defense, the...

NFL Scouts Talk Anonymously About AFC South Teams

By Athlon Sports, 4 months 1 day ago
