Coming off a huge win in Dallas, who are five Minnesota Vikings players to watch closely this Sunday against the Denver Broncos?
The Minnesota Vikings are feeling good after a big win in primetime against the Dallas Cowboys last week. The Vikings fought hard all game and got a rare win on the road against a team with a winning record.
Minnesota returns home this Sunday and takes on a lackluster Denver Broncos squad. While the Broncos do have a bad looking record at 3-6, they are better than they appear. They have a very good defense and have been in a lot of close games. Four of their losses have been by 10 points or less, so they have been very competitive in the majority of their matchups this season.
This will not be an easy game for the Vikings and with the bye on the horizon, Denver can’t be a team they overlook.
Minnesota has a very long list of players who are injured this week. They will need to rely on some players who are a bit further down on the depth chart for Sunday. Luckily, the Vikings have a pretty deep roster this year.
So who are five Minnesota players to watch this week that will be key in the team walking away with a win and heading into their bye at 8-3?
