Minnesota Vikings vs. Green Bay Packers Preview and Prediction

By Mark Ross, 7 months 4 days ago
Back in Week 2, Minnesota defeated Green Bay 17-14 in the first game played in brand-new U.S. Bank Stadium. That victory was part of the Vikings’ impressive 5-0 start and gave them an early two-game lead over the Packers.   Fast-forward to Week 16 and it’s Green Bay (8-6) that is peaking at the right time, while Minnesota (7-7) has won just two of its past nine games. In fact...

Dallas Cowboys vs. Minnesota Vikings Preview and Prediction

By John Gworek, 7 months 3 weeks ago
One could forgive Minnesota head coach Mike Zimmer if, while watching film of the Cowboys this week, he shakes his head and thinks “That should be us.” After all, the Cowboys are running roughshod over the NFL at 10-1 executing a blueprint that is much like what the Vikings had planned for this season.   It was nothing exotic: Run the ball effectively with a star back (Adrian...

Thanksgiving Day: Minnesota Vikings vs. Detroit Lions Preview and Prediction

By Tom Bowles, 8 months 5 days ago
It’s been a drought-busting season throughout major sports. The Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA Finals, bringing Cleveland its first title since 1964. The Chicago Cubs ended their historic 108-year run without a championship by winning the World Series.   Could the Detroit Lions be next on the list?   A team whose last NFL championship appearance (and win) was in 1957 must...

Minnesota Vikings vs. Chicago Bears Preview and Prediction

By John Gworek, 8 months 3 weeks ago
On paper, this looks like a Monday night mismatch. The Minnesota Vikings and the NFL’s best defense invade Soldier Field tied for the best record in the NFC. The host Chicago Bears are tied for the NFC’s worst record and are already on their second three-game losing streak of the season.   The good news for Chicago is that the Vikings are coming off their worst performance...

Minnesota Vikings vs. Philadelphia Eagles Preview and Prediction

By Tom Bowles, 9 months 1 week ago
Two months ago, Carson Wentz was sitting out the rest of the preseason with a fractured rib. The quarterback of the Eagles’ future could do nothing but watch and learn while the incumbent, Sam Bradford, fought to prove he was still the best quarterback on the field.   Now, Bradford has a chance to do that as a part of the opposing team, competing when the games really matter and...

Houston Texans vs. Minnesota Vikings Preview and Prediction

By John Gworek, 9 months 3 weeks 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...

New York Giants vs. Minnesota Vikings Preview and Prediction

By Bryan Fischer, 9 months 3 weeks ago
Most of the “Monday Night Football” matchups this season have left a little something to be desired but rounding out Week 4 is one of the more intriguing games on the schedule between a pair of potential NFC title contenders. The two teams are both in the upper third of the league and in line to make a run at their respective divisions so it will be a nice test of just how good...

Minnesota Vikings vs. Carolina Panthers Preview and Prediction

By Rob McVey, 10 months 5 days ago
The Carolina Panthers may have kicked off their season on a sour note, losing to the Broncos for the second time in as many games, but it did not take Cam Newton and company long to get back on track with a dominant 46-27 victory over the 49ers in Week 2. Carolina will look to stay on a positive trajectory when it faces off with NFC North-leading Minnesota on Sunday. Ron Rivera’s...
