Week 12 – @ Atlanta Falcons

When the Vikings hosted the Falcons last season, they destroyed them in Bridgewater’s first career start. In 2015, it won’t be that easy as former Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn takes over as head coach. The Falcons have added a couple of solid veteran players on defense to help Quinn rebuild that defense. The Vikings should be able to sustain drives in this game and put up points in this game.

Defensively, the Vikings will have their work cut out for them. Matt Ryan is a dangerous quarterback to play against, especially when he’s at the Georgia Dome. Additionally, he still has Julio Jones and Roddy White to throw the ball to. Containing this offense may be a problem for the Vikings, but if they can manage it they’ll have a good chance to steal one from the Falcons.

Prediction: Vikings 27-24 (6-5)

Next: Week 13 - vs. Seahawks
