Minnesota has won their last two games but this is still a team that is pretty disappointing. They do not look like the Super Bowl contender most pegged them to be at the beginning of the season. This is a game that team should win.
At the same time the Jets have been better than expected. When they decided to go with a rookie at quarterback I don’t think anyone saw this as a .500 team. Which is what they are.
Minnesota was so strong at the end of the last season it was just assumed that would carry over to this one. Sure they made a change at quarterback but it was supposed to be an upgrade and they were supposed to have the best defense in the league.
On that last point they have been anything but – they are in the lower half of the league in yards and points allowed and when you marry that with an offense that is pretty average to you get a team that is underforming.
Bringing in Kirk Cousins has definitely improved the passing offense but the run game is not much to speak of this season. Dalvin Cook was supposed to be the answer but he has not been healthy. He has missed the last two games and is day to day with a hamstring. Seems like he is one of those players who is made of glass.
This is kind of a big game for the Vikings because it might be against the weakest team on the rest of their schedule. With the Bears suddenly a real threat they cannot afford too many unexpected negative performance.
New York Jets
The Jets have three wins so far so anyone holding an over ticket might be feeling pretty good right now. They are probably half way there and they still have games against the Bills. This is not a good team but they might be getting better.
Sam Darnold is not going to have impressive stats this season but it looks like he can be a good NFL quarterback, he just needs to keep progressing. One thing to like is that he seems to be able to make mistakes and get over them to make plays. He is not getting gun shy.
The overall defensive numbers are not great but they have been able to take the ball away. Darron Lee is a speed linebacker and he looks like he is settled in now with three interceptions. There are other young players on the defense who can grow into a strong unit together.
Darnold is the x factor in this one because he turns the ball over too. You can bet the Vikings will be aggressive and try and force him into some rookie mistakes.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Minnesota -3
The Vikings at -3 seems like a gift. I am guessing preseason this one would have been at least -7.
NFL Free Week 7 Score Prediction: Minnesota 31 – New York 16
I think we might finally see the kind of defense that we were looking for from Minnesota. A couple of turnovers and the offense will be set up really nicely.
