Check out these bold predictions for Week 10 as the Minnesota Vikings are fresh off their bye week and are looking to continue their winning ways.
The Minnesota Vikings are coming off their bye week and look to begin the second half of their schedule. They take on the Washington Redskins in Washington D.C which will offer a good test for the 6-2 Vikings.
The last time the Minnesota played the Redskins in Washington was in 2016. The Vikings fell just short and lost 26-20.
Minnesota will hope for a different outcome this year, but let’s dive into the bold predictions for Week 10.
#1 Case Keenum will score three total touchdowns
Keenum will put all of those questions about who the starting quarterback is for the Vikings to rest this week. He will throw two touchdowns and run for a third. Keenum goes up against a secondary that has allowed 12 touchdowns on the year. He will have all of his weapons healthy and be ready to go after the bye week.
Also, Keenum’s mobility is an underrated part of his game but could come in handy as the team is on the road. He will use his legs to buy time and run for his first rushing touchdown on the season.
#2 Stefon Diggs has 100 yards receiving and one touchdown
Diggs started the season off strong but has dealt with a groin injury for the past few weeks. But with him having the bye week to rest, it makes him poised for a breakout game. The Vikings will want to get their number one wide receiver going again and involved in the offense this week.
#3 The Vikings defense will force four turnovers
Minnesota has done an excellent job forcing turnovers over their four-game win streak. They will continue that trend this week as the defense is well-rested and facing a quarterback that is prone to turnovers. Kirk Cousins has thrown four interceptions and has four fumbles on the season. The Vikings’ pass rush is playing at an elite level and that will cause Cousins to turnover the ball.
#4 Kai Forbath will make five field goals
Forbath has been a big contributor to the Minnesota’s four-game win streak as he has made 15 of 15 field goal attempts during that stretch. He will continue his success against the Redskins and will have his chances as the Vikings’ offense has struggled to score touchdowns.
#5 Both Jerick McKinnon and Latavius Murray will have 50 total yards of offense
McKinnon and Murray have both found a part in the Minnesota’s offense as they have split the snaps evenly. Both have produced when on the field and the Vikings want to keep both productive in this offense. The two running backs are great runners and receivers that helps Keenum for check downs.
