Preview

The Vikings roll into Baltimore riding a two-game unbeaten streak (what is this, hockey?) and looking to play spoiler for the third consecutive game. 6-6 Baltimore is right in the AFC playoff hunt, having knocked off the Jets and Steelers the last two weeks.

With Christian Ponder still suffering concussion symptoms, the Vikes will go to backup QB Matt Cassel, who torched the Bears for 243 yards and 1 TD in the second half plus overtime. Adrian Peterson looks to extend his 100-yard-game streak to three.

The Ravens have been struggling offensively thanks to a sluggish run game and poor pass blocking. Joe Flacco’s stats have suffered but he is still a threat. Torrey Smith is a big-time speed receiver with downfield skills who should give the Vikings’ secondary all they can handle.

The Ravens’ defense has not been as dominating as in past years. They are not forcing turnovers and teams have been able to run on them with a fair amount of success. If things hold to form, the Vikings’ offense should be able to move the ball on this unit.

Weather will be a factor in this game, with the forecast calling for snow.

Prediction: Baltimore 24, Minnesota 20
