After an extended break from their last game, the Minnesota Vikings will look to increase their winning streak to five in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Following the past four weeks, it’s hard to argue against the Minnesota Vikings being one of the best teams in the NFL right now. The Vikings have won each of their last four games and all of their victories have been by margins of 10 points or more.

Minnesota has just been on a roll lately and there aren’t many other ways to describe their recent success. With a 6-2 record after their first eight games of the year, the Vikings will now turn their attention to the second half of the season and make a push toward the playoffs.

Standing in Minnesota’s way of increasing their win streak to five games this week is the Kansas City Chiefs. In order to continue their winning ways, the Vikings must find a way to get a road victory over the Chiefs for the first time since 1974.

Losers in three of their last four games, Kansas City is going to be hungry and desperate to do anything they can for a win on Sunday. However, there are still a number of reasons to believe that it will be Minnesota leaving the stadium this week with another victory added to their 2019 total.
