We’re in the middle of a crucial NFC showdown in Minneapolis, where the Vikings (7-7) are looking to stay in the NFC playoff picture and the Rams (10-4) are still hunting for an NFC West title. Minnesota is down healthy bodies on its once-explosive offense, with Dalvin Cook sidelined due to COVID and Adam Thielen aggravating an ankle injury, while the Rams are looking to extend their win streak to four games after beating the Seahawks a week ago.
Can Kirk Cousins and Mike Zimmer team up to deliver Minnesota a home upset? Or are Matthew Stafford and Co. destined to stay hot in wintry Minneapolis? Stafford wasn’t particularly sharp in the first half, instead leaning on Sony Michel to claim a 13-3 lead. But this one should be good until the finish line. Stay tuned here for live updates and analysis throughout the matchup.
