Week 7 – @ Detroit Lions

The Lions are the superior team in this matchup on both sides of the ball. While the Vikings will undoubtedly improve from the first matchup between the two teams, the Lions will still be too much to deal with especially on their home turf.

This game could be competitive if Bridgewater gets into a rhythm and doesn’t make many crucial errors. Minnesota had the game won last season in Detroit until Bridgewater threw two questionable throws that resulted in interceptions and points for Detroit. Hopefully, the Vikings can keep this one close again and even pull off the win. I just don’t see it.

Prediction: Lions 30-16 (2-4)
