Week 10

Chicago Bears (Away)

  • Date: Monday, November 16
  • Time: 7:15 p.m. CT
  • TV: ESPN

It really doesn’t matter what the Bears’ record will be heading into this game. It’s always a tough trip for the Vikings to make and it’s going to be again this season. The Chicago curse will strike once again and Minnesota will suffer their third loss of the year.

Prediction: Vikings lose (6-3)

Week 11

Dallas Cowboys (Home)

  • Date: Sunday, November 22
  • Time: 3:25 p.m. CT
  • TV: FOX

Not only will the Vikings have a short week to prepare for this contest, but the Cowboys will also be coming off of their bye week. It should be a close matchup, but a well-rested Dallas team will walk out of U.S. Bank Stadium with a win over Minnesota.

Prediction: Vikings lose (6-4)

Week 12

Carolina Panthers (Home)

  • Date: Sunday, November 29
  • Time: 12 p.m. CT
  • TV: FOX

Unfortunately for Teddy Bridgewater, his return to the Twin Cities isn’t going to turn out very well this season. Fueled by the disappointment of two-straight losses, the Vikings will make Bridgewater’s life miserable all day and get an easy victory over the Panthers.

Prediction: Vikings win (7-4)

Week 13

Jacksonville Jaguars (Home)

  • Date: Sunday, December 6
  • Time: 12 p.m. CT
  • TV: CBS

With the way they decimated their roster this offseason, the Jaguars are likely going to be one of the worst teams in the NFL in 2020. However, this matchup could potentially be a trap game for Minnesota, so they need to be careful. In the end, the Vikings will avoid an embarrassing loss and leave the field with a win over Jacksonville.

Prediction: Vikings win (8-4)
