Hard to believe, but the Vikings are now tied with the Packers for first place in the NFC North since Green Bay has lost 2 in a row.
The Vikings have won 4 in a row, but they lost Teddy Bridgewater in their last game to a concussion and journeyman Shaun Hill will likely get the start under center this Sunday.
The Raiders had their 2-game winning streak snapped in their last game.
On the season the Raiders are 2-2 at home and the Vikings are 2-2 on the road.
In their last games the Vikings beat the St. Louis Rams 21-18 in OT and the Raiders lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers 38-35.
Hill was solid in the win over the Rams when he took over for Bridgewater and while lead WR Stefon Diggs has had a solid season he was pretty quiet in the St. Louis win.
The Oakland defense has really struggled against the pass this season ranking 29th in that category.
Oakland has been solid against the run this season ranking 7th in the league in that category and they will be tested this week by Vikings’ RB Adrian Peterson, who leads the NFL in rushing yards and rushed for 125 yards in the win over the Rams.
The Vikings have lost 7 of their last 10 road games.
Derek Carr leads the Raiders and he had a big game in the loss to Pisttsburgh passing for 301 yards with 4 TD and 1 INT.
He has Michael Crabtree and the big play Amari Cooper and they will be up against a Minnesota pass defense that has played well this season and ranks 6th in the league.
Oakland RB Latavius Murray has been a big reason for the Raiders turnaround, but he is a question mark in this game after a concussion in his last one.
His loss would be a big one, as the next leading RB Taiwan Jones only had 70 rushing yards on the season.
Minnesota only ranks 17th in the league in run defense, but they have only allowed 2 players to rush for over 100 yards and only allowed 89 rushing yards last week facing Todd Gurley, who had 3 straight games of at least 125 rushing yards.
Oakland is 5-5 overall in their last 10 games at home.

The underdog has covered the spread in 4 of the last 5 games between these 2 teams and I think that trend will continue in the Bay Area this Sunday.
NFL Free Score Prediction: Minnesota 27 Oakland 24
Peterson will have a good game, but the main reason the Vikings will win is their defense will keep Carr from having a huge game in terms of TD’s.
