Minnesota Vikings At Miami Dolphins: 5 Predictions
By Adam Carlson
On Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings will travel to Miami to take on the Dolphins. Miami is a tough team that currently has a 7-7 record on the season. They have explosive offensive weapons like Mike Wallace, Jarvis Landry, and Lamar Miller. Defensively, they are also a pretty scary team. Cornerback Brent Grimes has 5 interceptions this year and defensive end Cameron Wake has 9.5 sacks this season.
This will be a tough game for Minnesota, but there will be some notable things that will happen in this game. Here are my predictions for the Vikings vs Dolphins game on Sunday:

Teddy Bridgewater’s three game streak with completing over 70% of his passes will end. Bridgewater has been on fire lately with his accuracy, but I don’t think his trip home to Miami will be a as fruitful as his recent games. Instead, I see him completing closer to 60-65% against this stout defense.

Jarvis Landry gets over 100 yards receiving. Too much attention will be paid to Mike Wallace that the underrated Landry will be able to win 1-on-1 battles against Josh Robinson or Captain Munnerlyn. Landry exploded onto the scene for Miami last week against the Patriots when he had 8 catches for 99 yards. This will be his first game over the century mark in his NFL career.
You can watch the game on Fox at noon central time. Check your local listings for availability.
