Minnesota is in a great spot to make the playoffs but they would rather do so as division winners than Wild Cards. They need a win there.
The Chargers are not going to make that kind of a push so all they can do is play spoiler. There is not going to be much juice here with a non-regular opponent. .
Minnesota wants to get a win here to make their game next week against Green Bay be of max importance. They get to finish at with a couple of games at home but this one on the road is key. All of their losses have been outside Minnesota.
This is one of the most balanced teams in the league. On offense they can run and throw well and they are 7th in the league in scoring and points allowed. They just need to pick up the performance level on the road. This is a good spot.
This is a game where they should be able to be methodical and get most of what they want but they have to avoid looking ahead. San Diego has nothing to lose and they can tag them if they are not focused enough.
The thing I am most confident about is the defense. Danielle Hunter had three sacks last week and is having another great season. That group can set the tone in this one.
There is a lot to like about Minnesota but they never seem to be able to get it all going. They just need a professional game here.
Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers have been snakebit most of the season. They have 8 losses already but none have been by more than a touchdown. It is hard to know how good this group really is.
Last week they exploded with a 45-10 win over Jacksonville. It is hard to find much fault with a game like that.
If you had Austin Ekeler in your fantasy lineup you were very happy as he rushed for 101 yards and had 112 yards receiving. Seems like every time he touched the ball it was a big play.
They are going to find it tougher this weekend against Minnesota but that is probably the way to attack. It is hard to sustain drives against the Vikings defense.
Off a big win could be a time to fade the Chargers a little. Their season is essentially over and they could also be looking ahead to the final two games against division opponents.
