I am not going to lie, I originally had this game as a blowout win for the Broncos. However, with the resurgence of Adrian Peterson and that front seven causing havoc on the offensive line and quarterback, I would not be surprised if this game is closer than we think.
The first road game that the Vikings had this season, they struggled quite a bit. Add on to the fact that they will be playing in one of the most difficult places for opposing teams to play in, the Vikings will most likely be bringing in the oxygen.
We have not talked about Teddy Bridgewater so far in the piece, so I have a prediction to what is going to happen to him. I predict that he will commit five turnovers in the game. (3 INT’s, 2 Fumbles) And he will get sacked at least six times.
As for the winner of the game, that Viking front seven and Adrian Peterson will make it a close one, but the Broncos will ride the undefeated streak into Oakland.
