Week 4 – @ Denver Broncos

The last time these two teams played, Tim Tebow was leading the Broncos to the playoffs. Things are a little bit different now, and the Vikings will be faced with the tough task of trying to contain Peyton Manning. The one chance the Vikings have to contain Manning is if Everson Griffen and company can get some serious pressure and force Manning to move around in the pocket.

The Broncos defense can be exploited but with guys like Aqib Talib, DeMarcus Ware, and Von Miller it’s very tough to do so. The Broncos will match up with the Vikings well on both sides of the ball, and it could get ugly if Manning gets into a rhythm early on.

Prediction: Broncos 38-24 (2-2)

Next: Week 6 - vs. Chiefs
