This is a pretty interesting matchup as both of these teams have the same problem in their own division. Yes, they could still tie the leaders in their divisions, but that won’t be enough for them to make the Playoffs as they don’t own the tiebreaker against those squads. This practically means that both of these teams need to win out and that the season will be over for the one that loses this match.
Indianapolis had a golden opportunity to take control of their division with the win at home over the Texans, but things didn’t go according to their plan. Their offense failed to make a statement in the biggest match of the season at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Vikings lost the same kind of a game on Thanksgiving day against the Lions. Now, they are in a pretty tough spot as Detroit just keeps winning while the Packers are now on a roll.
The offense has failed to play well consistently, but they are going to look pretty good going up against the Colts as they can’t stop anybody. They were decent against the Texans, but they played against Osweiler who can’t connect with his weapons. Sam Bradford is for sure better than Houston’s signal-caller and is going to make something happen on Sunday.
We are picking the Vikings to win this game in Minny. Their defense is going to be all over Andrew Luck while their offense is good enough to put the points on the board against this putrid Colts defense. The final score will be 26:20 in favor of the home squad.
